Video throws an error message. What can I do?

Browser plug-ins or add-ons might be interferring with the playback of the video.

  • Open OskiCat and search for the name of the video
  • In the OskiCat record, click on the link to the video.
  • If you receive this error message: Error. Video Playback Was Aborted, disable browser plug-ins or add-ons that might be interfering with the playback of the video.
  • For Firefox hold down the Shift key, and click on the browser icon to open the browser in "Safe mode," which disables possibly interfering plug-ins.
