-Our wiki and mywindward.wws5.com ​selfhelp ​are typically using flash players to view.  There are two possible problems that could cause video playback issues using the flash player.  ​note that gotomeeting.com links will require a download of a codec from the following link.+Our selfhelp ​uses the Adobe flash player ​for video content.  ​Flash will continue to be supported until December 31st, 2020.

-The second problem may be the codec used by the video system.  ​If you are unable to view the training videos and / or are unable to here them, try downloading and installing the latest K-LITE CODEC pack from the following WEB site:  ​[[http://www.free-codecs.com/​download/​K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm|http://​www.free-codecs.com/​download/​K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm]] ​ Download the Full version and install using the defaults provided.
