Hi Bryan,
This might be due to the flash player that is on that computer, it's hard to say. Do you want to post your URL here and I'll see how it looks from my computer.

Hi Emmy,
Thanks for the reply (shame I can't see it on this page, have to keep jumping back to e mails!).
I do not think it is a flash player problem as all the machines I have tried it on have flash player installed.
I have done a bit of digging over the weekend and I am leaning towards it being an IP address problem. It would seem that I, like many others, have a dynamic address and need a Static address to stream to a web page.
I have had a play with my router with little success (About 2 hours on phone to AOL help desk to get it working again!).
Any pointers in this direction (assuming I am going the right way?) would be appreciated.

Hi Bryan,

Maybe using alternative software such as ustream or livestream.
Heres a Yola support answer I borrowed.

How do I add a video from a web cam?
For your webcast we can suggest that you use Ustream.

Ustream gives you all the technology to record and stream your webcast and provides embed code for their feeds. Below the feed hosted by Ustream you will see a button that says "copy embed". Click on this.

Then in Yola, use the HTML editor to paste the code onto your site.

1. Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
3. When you are done, click "OK" and your HTML will be displayed on the page.

People will then be able to watch your webshow directly on your Yola site!


Hope this helps!
