Media Playback Tips for EduCat

Media Playback in EduCat

Depending on which browser is being used, additional clicks may be required to play audio or video in EduCat. Some browsers temporarily block audio or video to let you know that it may contain insecure content. This may include embedded video from YouTube, Google Videos, Ted Talks, and our own WildCast server.


If the audio or video does not play, and you see the following:


  1. click the “lock” icon to the left of the address bar in the browser
  2. Click the arrow to the right of “Firefox has blocked parts of this page that are not secure.”
  3. Select “Disable Protection for now”

Google Chrome

After clicking on the video link, a shield icon will appear in the address bar of the browser (see image below). It is necessary to click on the shield icon, then click “Load unsafe script”, and the video playback window will appear.
