First try to access and view our free sample videos. If you are successful in viewing a sample video you should have no problems with any of our content. In general, most modern PC's running the Windows or MAC operating systems will have no issues in accessing the content on our site.
Should you have any difficulty accessing the presentations, you will need to ensure you have installed on your computer the latest version of the Flash Plug-in that you can download free at: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer

Live broadcasts can be private or public. When an event is defined as private to an institution, like a college or an association, the access is only limited to members of this institution. The access to the video will be passworded. If the broadcast is public then all subscribers will be able to access it.

Please email us at help@Sexualhealthvisual.com ensuring you let us know the details of your computer and internet connection speed, and give us as much information about the problem as you can. If the problem is with a certain presentation, please let us know which one.
I am trying to watch the videos through my network at work. Why can't I connect?
Your system administrator has more than likely disabled the downloading of multimedia across your network. You need to discuss this matter with your IT support team. They may allow selective access to our servers' IP address.
The sound through my computer is choppy or garbled. What can I do to fix it?
Ensure you have the latest drivers for your sound card, by visiting the manufacturers website to download the drivers.
The video is jerky it is like a succession of images rather than a smooth video?
Most likely you are trying to view a video with a bit rate that is higher than what your internet connection is capable of.
Will it be possible to view the video of the broadcast delayed, like the next day or the next week on the web?
Yes and no. The video of the live broacast will be available for 'on demand' viewing at a later date depends on the arrangement that has been organised between Audio Visual Archives, the speaker and the event organisers. If a lecture at a later date is published by SexualHealthVisual than it will be available to subscribers.
