We’ve had a few emails from schools who are worried they might not have the correct software to enable them to watch the live stream of ‘The Big Assembly’ or Archbishop Nichols’ address to schools this Friday. Below you’ll find some more detailed information about the stream, which should enable you to make sure your school is able to access the stream.
The live and on-demand webcast is accessible via www.thepapalvisit.org.uk. The feed to Archbishop Nichols’ address will be available from 10am Friday 10th September. The address itself will start at approximately 10.30am and last for 10-15 minutes.
If you have any difficulties accessing the webcast here is some more information:
It is being streamed as Flash video and you will require broadband Internet access.
Make sure there are no restrictions (firewall or otherwise) on allowing certain media types through (flash video)
Please enable Firewall/DNS exception to allow for papal visit domain: thepapalvisit.org.uk
Please ensure that you test the feed as soon as possible before the address starts
You will have a re-size option on the media player to allow full screen and for those who are using projection or larger screens for group viewing this is a good option.
