Test Stream

This page will help you test your connection to Clark University. Below is a video of Clark's 2012 Commencement, it should start playing in a moment or two. If it doesn't please see the troubleshooting steps.


Webcasts start approximately 15 minutes before the event starts. Prior to that, the video window will be blank (probably black). Once we begin broadcasting, your video should start automatically. If not, please refresh your browser window.

Clark uses Windows Media Server to broadcast our live and on-demand events.  You will need Windows Media Player. If you don't have it follow the links below to get it:

If your web browser isn't working, you can try launching in an external media player.

If volume is too low:

  • Use the volume control slide below the video to increase volume.
  • If that still isn't loud enough, you may need to increase speaker volume setting for your computer.
