    Hi I am having problems watching the videos, I have the latest adobe flash player installed, what is happening is only part of the video is loading , the length of the video loading varies everytime I try and then the video freezes or the circular graphic in the middle of the screen appears.

    I'm wondering if this has anything to do with my internet connection, any help would be appreciated thankyou.

    Hi Rex!

    I haven't had that happen to me, but do know that the first two things I'd look at are the internet connection and also the browser, if I knew I had the newest version of Adobe Flash. Try using a different browser and see if that helps, if not, then I'd look to see if my internet connection is dropping while the video is trying to load.

    Good luck and please let us know what happens with it.

      I have exactly the same problem. My internet connection is good. Stream live high definition TV, download DVD size files with no interruptions or any other problems.

      I've tried everything. Two different computers and multiple browsers, cleaned out the cache, set maximum storage in the settings on each attempt.

      And exactly what 73REX73 said "the length of the video loading varies everytime I try". Actually it's the total file size not downloading completely.

      The run time to watch a video maybe 45min - 1 hour but download time should only be 10min at most. Unfortunately it stops at a random point 30sec, 8min, 2min etc.. It is the same from pokerstars.tv as it is from the PSO training video servers.

      IMO the problem must be related to how these large files are served through the videojuicer JWplayer wrappers over the internet combined with the server speed.

      Any length videos are fine from other hosting servers like youtube.

      Is this just a UK problem? Please post here if you have this problem.

          I have tried Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer to try and watch a video, but always the same problem, with Google Chrome I was able to watch about 30 mins of a video alot less with the others.

          What other information do you need?

              All our Live Training videos from October 2011 on are housed on the PS.tv server, so when you watch one through PSO it's pulling from PS.tv on the back end. However I think the older Live Training videos may still be housed differently, the intention is to move them all over to PS.tv eventually but I'm not sure it's been done yet.

              Can you try viewing one of the old videos please and advise if it's the same experience as the newer ones? Just pick any of my early vids, session 1-10 should suffice, and see if it has any load problems. It might make a difference in isolating the issue.

              Thanks,

                Hi,

                We have 3 people in the UK experiencing the same problem. Probably need a larger sample size.

                @TheLangolier

                It seems to be the same from the older and new pokerstars.tv servers. I have put some red pen marks in the attached file to show how far the video has downloaded. I can't see any commonality.

                I tested an early session I had tried to watch before about commitment using firefox and it stopped downloading quite quickly (2 images) - videojuicer wrapper.

                Second I tested a later session #75 this time I mixed it up between firefox and internet explorer (4 images) - JWplayer wrapper.

                Hope this helps.

                  I am still experiencing the same problems trying to play the videos, I have just tried to play the Semi Bluffing and 3-Betting Essentials videos and I am unable to play the whole video on both these lessons.

                    Hi 73REX73. I do not know what the solution to your problem is, but I will investigate and let you know. Since it is the weekend, it may take a couple of days. Keep checking back in case I need some more details.

                      Same here.

                      Again just picked one from the site header on semi-bluffing theory.

                      Two attempts stopped downloading at about 40% and then 50% of total file size.

                      I paused both at 1:18

                        Video problems

                        Sorry fornot getting back to you sooner, but both my power and internet were out most of the day. I have found that some other people are having your problem and some are not. Unfortunately I could not find anybody with a solution. So I am going to pass you on to support which you can contact by email at support@pokerschoolonline.com.

                          Hi John:

                          I was checking this out. Is there a place to play poker games on PSO?

                            Hi Jan!

                            Welcome to the forum!

                            Since it looks like you're from the US, the only games that are available as of now are the play money home games. Here's a link to them. Unfortunately, the members that live in the US (me included) can only play for play money.

                              Are other members still having problems with the videos ?

                              After PSO was revamped I was able to watch a video and thought the problem had been solved, but not now.
