How do I register for a Webcast?

You may register from the "Register for this Webcast" link on the AP Dbriefs page or directly from our invitation emails. From either place, when you activate the "Register" button you will be taken to our global registration form. Once you have completed the entire form for your first Webcast, you may "Express Register" for each subsequent Webcast by entering only your email address.

Is there a deadline for registration?

No, although we recommend registering no later than 30 minutes prior to any event. Once registered, a confirmation email will be sent containing the link needed to access the Webcast.

Does registration ever close?

Only after the Webcast has been aired. It may then be viewed at any time from our archives page for up to 180 days after the live event.

Is there a limit to the number of attendees?

No, unlike some technologies with a limited capacity, ours allows for an unlimited number of viewers, ensuring access to the Webcast.

After I register for a Webcast, when will I receive the details necessary to access it?

Upon registering, you will be sent an automatic confirmation email with the access link. We will also send a reminder notice shortly before the event.

How do I subscribe to or unsubscribe from the Dbriefs mailing list?

You may join the mailing list by selecting the "Join Dbriefs/Update My Profile" button on the right or simply by attending a Webcast. You may unsubscribe at any time by sending us an email with the word “Unsubscribe” in the subject line. 

How much does it cost to view a Webcast?

Nothing, they're absolutely free.

What is the ideal time to join a Webcast?

We recommend joining the Webcast about five to 10 minutes before it begins, to make sure your computer is configured properly.

How can I obtain a copy of the slides used during the Webcast?

The slides from a Webcast can be downloaded directly from the Webcast screen, for both live and archived presentations.

What if I missed a live Webcast?

All Dbriefs Webcasts are archived for 180 days after they originally air. For a complete list of past programming, please visit the Dbriefs Library.

Can I receive CPE credit for attending a Webcast?

You can request a Dbriefs Asia Pacific Attendance Record for Webcasts you have attended to claim CPE/CPD credits. See CPE/CPD Information to find out the eligibility requirement in your jurisdiction and how to request the attendance record.

Is there a dial-in number for the Webcast?

No. All audio and visual aspects are streamed directly over the Internet and come through your computer.

I can’t see the polling question or I can't download the slides.

Press F5 to refresh your screen. If the problem persists, log out of the Webcast, clear your cache and log back in.

To clear your cache:

  1. Within Internet Explorer, go to the Tools Menu.
  2. Select Internet Options.
  3. Select the General tab.
  4. Within the Temporary Internet Files section, click Delete Files.
  5. In the next pop-up window, check the Delete All Offline Content.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Once the pop-up window has closed, click OK in the Internet Options window .
  8. Close all browsers.
  9. Click on the event URL or open a new browser and paste the URL to join the event.

I can't hear anything (or the sound is very faint).

Verify that your speakers are plugged into the power outlet, turned on and up, and connected to the audio port of the computer. Your speakers or headphones must be plugged into the sound card – not into the "sound out" jack of the CD-ROM drive. 

If you still cannot hear any audio, check your system volume settings:

1. Click Start, Settings, and then Control Panel. 

2. Double-click on the Multimedia Icon. 

3. On the audio tab, turn up the volume. If it is grayed out, this indicates that the system is not configured for sound.

If you have turned up the volume on both your speakers and system, then try turning up the volume on whichever media player you use.

The "Join Webcast" link in the confirmation email doesn't work.

The URL to enter the Webcast may have wrapped in your email program, thus truncating the URL into two sections. Check to see that the URL has not been broken or is missing characters. You may need to cut and paste the full URL into the address field of your Web Browser.

I can't register for the Webcast, or I can't complete my registration form.

In order to register for the Webcast, your computer must have cookies and JavaScript enabled. If your operating system currently does not have cookies or JavaScript enabled, contact your network administrator or reference the help links located on the registration page.

To enable cookies support when using Internet Explorer, complete the following steps:

  1. Run Internet Explorer.
  2. Click on "Tools" on the menu at the top.
  3. Click on "Internet Options."
  4. Click on the "Privacy" tab.
  5. Click on the "Advanced" button.
  6. Select "Override automatic cookie handling."
  7. Select "Always allow session cookies."

I keep receiving an error message stating that the form is missing information or I am entering an invalid email address when I register.

When the registration page refreshes with an error message, check to see that all of the required registration fields have been filled out properly and resubmit the form. 

Can I access the Webcast from a different computer than the one I registered from?

If you have already registered for the event, you can access the event regardless of the computer you initially registered from. Just enter your email address in the returning registrant portion of the event registration page. 

I can access the Webcast, but I cannot view the slides or the slides are not flipping.

Try refreshing the presentation by either hitting F5 on your keyboard or closing out and relaunching the presentation. If you have joined an event that has already started, please wait a few moments. The slides are synchronized with the event and will flip with the next timed marker in the presentation. 

The media player automatically stops or it continually stops and rebuffers.

Network congestion can occur at any time due to the following problems: 

  • If you are connecting to the Internet through a modem.
  • You are trying to access an event during peak Internet traffic hours.
  • If you are connecting to the Internet from outside North America.
  • There is heavy traffic on your company network.

To alleviate network congestion, you may want to consider the following:

  • Upgrading to a faster connection
  • Reduce the amount of applications you are running while accessing the event
  • Try accessing the event during an off-peak Internet traffic period

The slides are not moving.

Press F5 to refresh your screen. If the problem persists, please send a screen shot of your Webcast screen to DbriefsAP@deloitte.com.

To capture a screen shot:

  1. Pressing the ALT and PRT-Sc keys simultaneously.
  2. Paste the screen shot in the email.

Pressing the "Launch Presentation" button doesn't do anything

Pop-up blocking software (like Adaware, SpywareBlaster, Google or Yahoo pop-up blockers) might obstruct the presentation console from opening. You may need to temporarily disable the pop-up blocking software in order to participate in the event. To disable the pop-up blocker in your Internet Explorer: 

  1. Open an Internet Explorer Windows.
  2. Click on Tools – Pop-up Blocker, then click Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.
  3. Restart the event by clicking the event URL.

I receive an "HTTP not found" error message.

128-bit Encryption is required for your operating system and browser. To determine if your browser has 128-bit encryption, go to the "Help" feature at the top of the browser window, then click on the "About" selection from the drop-down menu. The parameter you need to verify is titled "Cipher Strength" for Internet Explorer.

My computer crashes when I try to access the Webcast.

First, verify that your settings meet the minimum Webcast requirements. If they do, try clearing your browser's cache and restarting the Webcast. 

I can't see the test video.

Your media player may not be installed correctly or your player may not be configured to stream the format of the event. Verify that the player has been installed correctly and check the player settings to verify that it is set up to receive the stream format. 

Do I need an updated codec file?

Microsoft Windows Media codecs are automatically downloaded by Windows Media Player, including all Windows Media codec updates. However, if you are using a proxy server in the network in question, then you will need to input that server information into the Windows Media Player or it will not be able to reach the Internet. For more info on Codecs, please click here: 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/mp10/codecs.aspx

Can I still view Webcasts if I have a Mac?

Yes. If you are using a Mac, you must download the Mozilla Firefox or Safari browser to view the Webcast.
