My video is stuttering, buffering or not playing correctlyThere are a couple of main culprits that may cause streaming playback issues. We've found the following troubleshooting steps correct the vast majority of buffering or stuttering performance issues. Any option by itself may clear up the playback issues.
Please note that Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft and is also no longer supported for program playback. If you are unsure of what Internet browser you are using, you can check by visiting this link. If you are on Internet Explorer, we recommend you switch to Microsoft Edge
TEMPORARY VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
If your video has stopped momentarily and this issue isn't occurring consistently, please try refreshing your entire viewer page by going to the Help tab in the viewer and clicking on the "Reload Viewer" text to refresh the page and reload the program.
If reloading the video doesn't seem to resolve the issue, here are some more suggestions:
CONSISTENT VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
STEP #1: LOCK ONTO THE LEAST DEMANDING VIDEO STREAM
You may be having intermittent issues with your Internet connection. This solution will lock you into the lowest available video stream that may smooth out your video playback experience.
Hover your mouse over the video player
Hover your mouse over the HD text at the bottom right of your video player
Select the lowest number listed to lock your video onto the least demanding video stream.
If video playback issues continue - move on to Step #2 below
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on a Mac device and/or using Safari, the HD button is not present. In order to lower the stream speed, you will need to switch to the Google Chrome browser.
STEP #2: SWITCH TO AN ALTERNATE INTERNET BROWSER
Your Internet cache in your browser may need to be cleaned/cleared out. If you are unsure about how to clear your browser cache, an alternate, easier and quicker option is to try switching to a different Internet browser to continue viewing the program. If you're on Microsoft Edge - try switching to view the program on the Google Chrome browser. Other popular browsers such as Opera and Firefox are compliant with program playback. Following this step resolves the vast majority of playback issues.
PLEASE NOTE that Internet Explorer is no longer a supported web browser. If you are attempting to view the video content using Internet Explorer, you will be required to switch to a current web browser such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or if you are on a Mac, Safari..
If any video playback issue persists, please contact Support for further troubleshooting.
What do I do if I can’t hear the audio?Please Note: If you are logging into a computer remotely using VPN, Citrix, or a cloud-based work environment, you may not hear the audio, so please log directly into your account page not using a remote environment.
If you are not connected using a remote environment, Please try the below suggestions to troubleshoot your audio issues.
First, please try refreshing your entire viewer page by going to the Help tab in the viewer and clicking on the "Reload Viewer" text link to refresh the page and reload the program.
Please Note: that if you are viewing the program using the Microst Edge or Firefox browser, the audio can be muted and unmuted from the video viewer tab.
If the issue continues - please see troubleshooting steps below:
First, please open a new tab (CTRL + T in most browsers) in your browser and go to youtube.com and click on any video to confirm you're able to hear audio. This can confirm whether this lack of audio is an issue with your machine or with the program. If you are not able hear audio on a YouTube video the issue is with the audio settings on your computer/device.
Try closing the viewer tab, returning to your online account and launching the viewer again by clicking the green Launch Viewer button under the title of the course.
Confirm speakers are plugged in and powered on.
Confirm the volume is turned up on the speakers.
Confirm that the speakers are plugged into the correct port on the back of the computer.
Internal Speakers (Laptop)

There is a speaker icon next to the computer clock in lower right corner of screen on Windows computers.
If you click this icon you can adjust your overall system's sound settings.

What Do I Need To Do Receive A Certificate of Completion?That answer depends on the type of delivery method you are viewing:
If viewing a video on demand with CE webcast – this type of delivery method contains 3 polling questions per hour that must be responded to within 30 seconds. Please note there is no right answer to these questions; the system is strictly looking for a response. If you miss 1 question you will be given another opportunity to continue the class. If you miss 2 questions you will not be able to complete the class for CE! You may continue to view the class for reference purposes only but not for CE. No refunds will be provided if you miss 2 questions.
If viewing a live webcast (date/time specific) - this type of delivery method displays 4 unique code letters throughout the webcast. Please keep track of these letters although you will be given an opportunity to acknowledge them as they appear. Each letter will be displayed at least twice, for about 30 seconds each time. To enter these letters as you see them, click on the "Save Code Letter" button inthe top left of your screen. This will automatically input your letter codes into the certification tab. We recommend following this method.
Alternatively; you can input the codes manually in the Participation Code section on the Certificate Tab of the viewer after the class. Using either method, you will still need to submit your code letters by clicking on the Submit button in the Participation Code section on the Certificate tab. Once you have submitted the codes correctly, your certificate will be issued. You can either download or email your certificate to yourself.
Should you have any questions, please contact the CE21 Help Desk at 1-877- 602-9877 or e-mail

Click on the Completed Seminars tab

Do I need to take a test after viewing an ABEN webcast?There are no tests! That is another advantage of ABEN webcasts! There are two methods to earn CE depending on the program format:
Live classes(date and time specific):
Click SAVE when you see participation codes displayed throughout the course, review and confirm these codes in the certificate tab immediately following the course.
On-demand with CE classes:
Three polling questions per hour will appear that you must respond to within 30 seconds. If you do not respond in the required time frame you will need to rewatch the course and will have one additional opportunity to respond to all polling questions timely!
