8th Annual Symposium - April 29, 2011 Webcast Archive

Webcast Archives

Archived copies of the webcast are available. Note that these are archives, so even though the video may indicate that the feed is live, it is not actually live. Also note that although you can move around a presentation using the slider bar, the presentation slides will not immediately update to the correct slide.

If you are looking for the archives of the 2012 presentations, they are available here.

Select the title below to view the archived version of the different presentations.

The archived webcast for the IPC presentations involves enhanced webcast content. This enhanced content shows both video of the presentors and simultaneously shows their presentation slides.

When you load the enhanced webcast, you may see a dialog box asking you if you wish to view the "web enhanced content." Click "Yes" to enable and view this content. (If you click "no" then you will get only the video feed.) After clicking yes, you should see the webcast video playing at the left side of the screen and accompanying slides displayed at the right hand side of the screen. These slides will change automatically as the presentations progress. The slides are PDF documents; if you right click on them you will find a menu which allows you to zoom in, zoom out, pan, or execute other commands.

If you are having trouble launching the enhanced webcast, please read the troubleshooting section below.

Viewing Requirements

To view the webcast and use the feedback system you will need:

  • Windows Media Player version 7 or higher, or a compatible streaming media player
  • A medium to high speed internet connection
  • A modern web browser
  • (Enhanced webcast) A version of Internet Explorer which supports frames
  • (Enhanced webcast) Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader

Linux and Macintosh Users

Although Windows Media Player is not available for Linux or Macintosh, there are other programs which will allow you to view streaming media in Windows Media Player format. MPlayer is a free, open source video player for Linux which will play Windows Media streams. Macintosh users may use QuickTime player with Windows Media components installed. (A binary version of MPlayer for Macintosh OS X is also available.)

At this time, we are not aware of being able to play enhanced content on any player except Windows Media Player. Therefore, you will likely not be able to view accompanying slides if you are not using the Windows platform. (If you do get enhanced content to work for you, however, we would love to hear about it!)


If you are unable to access the test video or the webcast via the links we provide, then you might try launching the webcast directly from within Windows Media Player:

  1. Open Windows Media Player
  2. In your web browser, copy the URL from the link to the webcast you are trying to view
  3. Select "Open URL..." from the File menu in Windows Media Player
  4. Paste the webcast URL into the dialog box which Windows Media Player brings up
  5. Click "Ok"
  6. If you are trying to load the enhanced webcast, please click "Yes" if you are asked to allow "web enhanced content" to be shown

You might also try connecting directly to the webcast without any enhanced features, using the link provided in the Enhanced Content section above.

Note: If you are using a streaming media player other than Windows Media Player, simply point your media player to the same URL as described above.

If this method of launching the webcast does not work either, then you may be experiencing one of the following problems:

  • Your media player may not meet the requirements. Please review the requirements listed on this page to ensure that you have a compatible player installed.
  • If you cannot view the slides in the enhanced webcast, Acrobat Reader may not be installed or configured properly. Please review the requirements listed on this page and download a recent version of Acrobat Reader.
  • Your computer may be behind a firewall. (Unfortunately, we can't help with this.)
  • Your internet connection may not have sufficient bandwidth to properly view the webcast, or your computer may not have enough processing power to display streaming media. (Unfortunately, we can't help with these either.)

If you need more help setting up your computer to view the webcast, please feel free to send an email. We will do our best to help you, although we can't guarantee that the webcast will work for you.
