Important Announcement

  • iPad is not compatible with old RealPlayer video streaming files at this time.

    The RealPlayer plug-in which plays video streaming content is not available at this time for iPad. It is recommended to use a personal computer, laptop, or one of the campus computer labs for courses which use RealPlayer video streaming files.


Video and audio files that are stored on the campus media server are streamed over the Web and accessed by users either through a link or are embedded in a webpage. Streaming is the process of delivering digital media (video and/or audio) over the Internet. The entire streaming media is not downloaded to your computer as a single file. Rather, it is displayed as it arrives to your computer.

The campus media server supports the following formats.

  • Flash Video (flv)
  • RealMedia (rm, rmvb)
  • QuickTime (mov)
  • Windows Media (wmv)

When you click a link to a audio lecture, video clip or video streaming lecture in a SacCT course or from a Web page, the default media player on your computer for that type of file opens to play the content. Media players can be downloaded from the Get Video Players page.

Audio and video can be used in a course or on a campus website for:

  • Live video streaming
  • Recorded lectures (a.k.a. video archives)
  • Viewing media on another website, e.g. YouTube or TeacherTube.

Example of Video Streaming

Try this link to a sample video archive file (RM) to be sure your RealPlayer software can stream one of our videos.

Download RealPlayer if the
video is not playing above.
