I apparently received the email yesterday evening. Once I was in the position of doing anything about it, it was on and I had other commitments.

Surely the same must have applied to everyone, particularly the "other commitments". Who has no work to be delivered, after all? I've only just found the time to reply!

I tried both Vivaldi and Firefox (on Windows 10 64-bit), but neither can play the videos.

OK, got it working in Edge. However: the video quality is too poor to actually watch. If I make it bigger, it is way too blocky.

Internet bandwidth and quality adjustment Jul 27

Apologies the experience has been sub optimal for you. The videos are broadcast in mixed bandwidth including 720 HD & 360 mobile. The player will automatically select the best bandwidth but you can also use the gear icon in the lower right of the video player to adjust/lower the bandwidth. The recordings are available in the post/archive of the embedded player and those recordings can be paused to account for buffering. The recordings will be available for all for 72 hours and then exclusively for ProZ.com Plus member subscribers.

Regards,

Drew
