Check Your Connection Speed. A high-speed Internet connection, such as cable modem or DSL, is recommended for watching streaming video. Streaming video may be viewed over a 56k modem connection, but the video quality will be noticeably lower and the window size during playback will generally be smaller. This often reduces the watchability of the content. To determine your bandwidth speed visit one of the web sites below:

ACC does not support streaming media produced by students. However, students who produce streaming video may upload it to YouTube.
The video(s) that accompany a text book are copyrighted unless otherwise noted. Therefore, a formal letter must be sent to the publisher to request to stream the videos. The publisher will mail a letter back with an approval or denial of your request. If an approval letter is provided, then you may stream the video content.

Video files can be very large. You would spend many minutes or even hours waiting for them to be downloaded to your computer if they weren't streamed. Streaming media technology allows you to see or hear the content in just a few seconds, instead of having to wait for it. Your only wait is a few seconds for a "buffer" to be built up that helps avoid interruptions caused by Internet traffic problems.
There are some potential problems, but we'll tell you how to avoid or minimize them.
