22. What is hardware acceleration, and what problems can it cause?
Hardware acceleration is a technology that modern web browsers use to increase the performance of your computer. Browsers utilize it when trying to load something that requires more computing power than normal. This can range from things like online gaming to video playback. Unfortunately, hardware acceleration doesn't work well with certain graphics cards, especially older card models. As a result, certain issues may occur in your browser, including during video playback. In most cases involving video playback, these issues manifest in one of three ways: A) Video doesn't display, although audio may be playing in the background. B) Severe video pixelation. C) Whites in videos appear as grays.
Back to Top
23. How do I disable hardware acceleration on my browser?
Chrome: Open a new tab and go to "chrome://flags". Find "Disable hardware-accelerated video decode" and click "Enable". Restart Chrome. Firefox: Click the Firefox button at the top-right of the Menu bar. Go to the "Options" menu and then click "Options" again. Click the "Advanced" tab at the top, then "General" below that. Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available". Click OK and restart Firefox. Internet Explorer: Click the Settings (gear) icon. Choose Internet Options. Select the Advanced tab. Check the box under Accelerated Graphics that reads "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering". Click Apply, then click OK. Restart Internet Explorer 11
Back to Top
24. Why can’t I watch Streamingteacher videos through my private network, firewall, or proxy server?
If you have a firewall or anti-virus software enabled or if you're connected to the Internet through a proxy server, you may need to whitelist certain domains in order to access videos.
Back to Top
25. What domains do I need to whitelist in order to access videos?
