System Requirements for Streaming Video

  • Our members area offers online streaming videos that are fully compatible with the newest web browsers from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Older versions of web browers will not work since they do not support HTML5 or modern video files.
  • We recommend a modern computer/laptop/tablet and a high-speed internet connection to experience smooth streaming video playback. Slower computers (pre-2002) and internet connections may result in choppy playback and download errors.
  • Newer iTunes, iPhones, iPads and iPods are fully supported. The iPad 1, unfortunately, is showing it's age and doesn't stream larger videos very well.
  • Andriod phones are not officially supported, but students report the videos play well on them.
  • Finally, don't stress the tech stuff too much. Our friendly (and shockingly attractive) support team is always here to help you on your medical coding journey.
