If you have a Firewall (security hardware/software) or any other security software running on your PC it may affect your access to the site. You should take a look at the manufacturer's manual or contact them regarding the package/hardware configuration.
If you have an internet connection of greater than 500k, but experience a lot of re-buffering when viewing the 500k stream, the problem is most likely to be caused by network congestion over your ISP connection. You can test the current download bandwidth available to you using one of the following links:
The results of these tests need to be around 400kbits/s in order to successfully stream the 256k videos, and please take into account fluctuations in local bandwidth. Please contact your Broadband provider directly to resolve these issues.
Make sure that your computer has a sound card to play the audio and your audio levels are turned up. If you do have a sound card, the content thats being played probably uses compression software that isnt installed on your computer.
This issue may also occur if there isnt enough bandwidth to play both audio and video. You may receive sound but not video because audio requires less bandwidth.
Unfortunately for events that require you to place a bet, the video can only be viewed on the PC that the bet was placed. This is due to Digital Rights Management (DRM) which means that a video streaming feed is licensed to the specific PC.
If you attempt to watch the race on a different PC, youll see the following message:
