What can I do to ensure the best viewing experience of HD Live Concerts (HDLC) on my computer?

For an optimal viewing experience we recommend a minimum 2.0 GHz Dual Core processor, 1 GB of memory and 128 MB of video RAM. A high-speed broadband internet connection of 2mbps or greater is also recommended.
You may test your connection speed for free on the HDLC home page.
I don’t have a very fast internet connection. Can I still enjoy the High Definition (HD) videos on HD Live Concerts?
Please see question one above for recommended system requirements specifically for High Definition videos. If those requirements are not met, the concerts will be viewable in Standard Definition.
Will I be able to access my account from any computer and/or internet connection?

Yes, you will be able to access your account from any computer and enjoy HDLC, as long as the computer you are using meets the minimum system requirements.
The video playback is choppy and/or stalling. What can I do to fix it?

The player should not stall under normal circumstances. If you are constantly experiencing problems with stalling or choppy playback, please check the following:
Ensure that your computer meets the minimum hardware and software requirements. Streaming video playback is extremely CPU intensive. If your CPU is running at or above about 75% you will likely encounter issues with sluggish or choppy playback. You can check your CPU usage by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del and then selecting "Task Manager". CPU usage percentages are listed under the "Performance" tab. (On a Mac, go to "Applications", then choose "Utilities" and open the "Activity Monitor.") You can reduce your CPU usage by closing other programs and background services which you have running at the same time as your web browser.
Some antivirus programs, internet security applications and/or content filters may interfere with the Media Player’s ability to provide uninterrupted playback by preventing timely delivery of the video content. Temporarily disabling these types of programs while viewing the website content may afford you a more enjoyable playback experience. For information on how to disable a specific program, please contact the software vendor.
