I can't get the video to play. What do I do?
If you've met the minimum system requirements above, you may want to check our Troubleshooting page.
I'm getting the broadcast but there's no sound. What's wrong?
- Most of the time, viewers have the sound muted by accident. For Windows® users, click on the speaker icon in the bottom right of the task bar. Check to see if the sound is muted.
- Be sure your speakers are properly plugged in and the volume is up.
- Both the Windows Media Player and Flash Player have a volume control. Make sure it is not muted and the volume level is up.
- For more information, please visit our Troubleshooting page.
The video seems a little small. Can I make it full screen?
Sure. For Windows Media Player, right-click on the player, go to Zoom, then left-click on Full Screen. For Flash Player, left-click on the 4-way diagonal arrows on the bottom right of the player.
Why does the picture seem blurry when I make it full screen?
The webcast is set to broadcast at a lower resolution than full screen. Most of the time, the available bandwidth we have to work with does not allow us to webcast at a higher resolution. Plus, the programs used to webcast "compress" the video so that it does not lag or become choppy. This however, causes the video to lose some of the quality. A webcast with DVD quality video will require a higher bandwidth for us and the viewers.
Why isn't the sound CD quality?
It goes back to the bandwidth we have to work with. The same principles apply when it comes to pushing media over the internet. The programs will "compress" the audio in order to reduce the file size so that the audio is seamless but compromising the quality. A webcast with CD quality sound will require a higher bandwidth for us and the viewers.
Can I put a webcast archive on my website or profile page?
Sure. We would love that. Each video has an embed code just below it that you can copy and paste into your site or profile page.
Do you mind if I put a link to your site on my website or profile page?
By all means, please do. We appreciate your support and helping to spread the word about us. Feel free to copy our logo to put with the link.
How do I know when you'll be webcasting again?
You can keep up with our schedule by visiting the Events page. You will also find other users (usually bands) listing their stuff too.
I'm in a band. How do I get on a JukeZoo webcast?
There are a couple of ways to do it. But both require that your band be a member of JukeZoo so we can help promote you.
- If you're in the Tulsa area, simply let us know where you are performing and request us to come webcast. Be sure to give us plenty of notice (usually 2-3 weeks) so we can schedule it and promote it. Also, check out our Production Rates.
- You can webcast yourself. Let us know that you want to do it and we will create a channel for you. You can then login and start your webcast anytime. All you need is a camera (one with a DV cable), a computer, and an internet connection. Plus we will train you how to do it and give you some pointers. And it's FREE to webcast yourself!
