There are a number of reasons why the occasional viewer is not able to access content and these usually relate to user issues or one of the following:
Chrome version 42.0 or later is no longer supporting Silverlight:
If you already have had Silverlight installed and it is asking you to do it again there is a known reason for this in chrome (support for Silverlight in chrome permanently ends soon) so either try another browser like Firefox (link) or try this workaround:
Internet Explorer 11 Playback Issue - when attempting to view a presentation that uses a Silverlight media element (Smooth Streaming or WMV) using Internet Explorer 11, playback may not function properly.
Playback issues in Safari 7.0 and 6.1 on Mac OS: When attempting to view a presentation via Silverlight in Safari 7.0 or 6.1 on OS X, the video does not play. This will also impact other portions of Mediasite where Silverlight is used for video playback, such as within the Web Editor application and the Recorder Monitor within Management Portal.
Bad username or Password error – check user credentials are correct by logging in to a computer located on campus;
Viewer on Campus (4001 Error) – Press F5 on the keyboard to reload the presentation; click in the address bar and press Enter on the keyboard; Use Internet Explorer.
Viewer at Home (4001 Error) – Home user needs to check their internet connection; Check internet usage meter supplied by ISP (Xtra, Telstra, Inspire etc).
Viewer at their Place of Work (Other than Massey) (4001 Error) – The work user needs to check a few things out (see below) with their system administrator/s
Viewer on a Mobile devices - Mediasite 6.0 introduced support for iOS devices, as well as other mobile platforms.
Notes: If external (i.e. physically accessing content Off-Campus) viewers cannot access webcasts from their homes/work and/or other institutions they should also try to access the presentations at alternative physical locations (Work/Other institution/Home/Library/Campus/Friends house).
