First Things First

If you are on a laptop, be sure to turn your wireless off for the broadcast.

Help! It Says "V Brick Player Required"

No worries. Follow these steps:

2. It will download the "nutcracker plug in" file onto your computer. Click on the download to open the file.

3. It will open a new window with a picture of an open box. RIGHT CLICK on the picture of the box. A menu will open. Click OPEN. If you try to double click the box to open it, you will be denied access.
