Warchant Technical FAQ
Here are some solutions to commonly asked technical questions. If you have any other questions or are still having trouble send us an email:

Watching Videos
NOTE: uses two different players for showing videos - the Warchant TV Player and the Player. Because there are less compatibility issues, we mostly use the Warchant TV player but occasionally it is necessary to use the player.
I can't see the video on my computer
If you're seeing a big blank (white) area where the video should be that means that your browser is failing to load the player. Ensure that your Shockwave-Flash plug-in is working properly. You can test it here:

Make sure you empty your web browsers cache or temporary internet files.
Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet Options > Delete... (button) > Temporary Internet files (check) > Delete (button)
Google Chrome: Tools (icon) > Options > Under the Hood > Clear browsing data... (button) > Empty the cache (check) > Clear browsing data (button)
Mozilla Firefox: Tools > Clear recent history > Details (arrow button) > Cache (check) > Clear now

If your browser supports HTML5, it could be rendering the video in a non-flash/shockwave format. If you are seeing a QuickTime logo with a question mark where the video should be, you need to
update your Apple QuickTime player. You can do that here:

If you still can't see the video, send us an email:

I can't see the Videos on my iPhone/iPad/Android device
Videos played through the player are not compatible with iPhones and iPads. To alleviate this, we will post most of our videos in our Warchant TV player. If you are having trouble
watching Warchant TV videos on your iPad or iPhone, make sure you are online and have a strong wireless or 3G signal.

Android devices should play the Rivals videos, however some versions of the Android browser have had issues with it. The "Skyfire" browser will play the Rivals videos just fine. It is a free app
found under "Market" on your Android device.

The video starts and stops repeatedly
This is due to a slow connection on your end. The video starts and stops when it is playing faster than it is loading. You can press the "pause" button and let the video buffer for a minute or two.
That will allow you to watch it with less interruption.
