ON-DEMAND Video issues
Once in a rare while we find downloading on-demand video may not work as good as we’d like. WCCA’s IT Technician John Simakauskas shared his insight on this matter with us.

“There are times when the equipment at the Internet Archive, where the WCCA videos are archived, are overwhelmed with requests that causes a video to be momentarily unavailable.
There are times when the equipment at the Internet Archive is offline for repair/enhancement. This can also result in a video being unavailable for a brief period. Should a video be unavailable for viewing, wait a few minutes and try again. Occasionally you may need to wait for more than a few minutes while the equipment is being repaired.”

Thank you John and to our viewers we thank you for your patience and for watching and supporting WCCA TV.
