And the SugarEd community is about so much more than videos. It’s truly your one-stop place for all things cakey.

Our videos should play on any device using just about any browser. But in case you encounter any problems, here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Try switching your browser and make sure that the latest version is installed.
  • Update to latest version of Flash player.
  • Close other browsers, programs or applications that may be using the computer's resources.
  • Disable ad blocking software.
  • Refreshing the page or clearing your cache may help.
  • Reboot your computer and modem.
  • Try using another device to help narrow down the source of the problem. (Device/browser vs internet connection.)
  • If you have a slow or busy Internet connection:
    • Turn the HD button off in the video player.
    • Play the video on the smaller screen.
    • Watch during a time of the day when your Internet network is less busy with traffic.
