I can't see the picture. What's wrong?
  The Council stream is audio only. We currently do not have video cameras in the Council Chamber.
   
What are the minimum system requirements?
  The audio stream requires Windows Media Player version 7 or higher. This version of the player was first shipped with Windows Me. Compatible versions are built into Windows XP and Vista. Upgrades to compatible versions are available on the Microsoft website for Windows 98 and 2000.
   
When I go to the page, a dialogue box pops up and asks me to log in. Why?
  It is most likely that you are listening in a corporate environment that does not allow streaming media outside your organization. If so, please contact your network administrator.
   
I don't use Windows Media Player. How can I listen to the stream?
  The Region of Peel can only broadcast using Windows Media Encoder at this time. The encoding used by the Region, Windows Media Audio codec 9.1, works with Windows Media Player version 7 and higher.
   
I use a Macintosh computer. What can I do to listen to the stream?
  A version of the Windows Media Player for Mac users is available on the Microsoft website.
   
I use a Linux (UNIX etc) computer. What can I do to listen to the stream?
  There are at least two players that may be able to play the stream: MPlayer and XMMS. However, Regional staff have not tested them and are unable to support at this time.
   
I go to the page and the stream starts but then it stops suddenly, what is happening?

I go to the page and a dialogue pops up that says that Windows Media Player cannot connect to the server. What should I do?
 

There are several possible causes:

  • Council has gone In Camera (a part of the meeting is closed to the public);
  • Council is in recess;
  • the meeting has adjourned; or
  • there is no meeting scheduled for the day. Please check the Meeting Schedule for upcoming meetings.

Live audio stream is not operational for these purposes.

   
There's a hum in the background. How can I get rid of it?
  This is caused by the microphone lines in the Council Chamber.
   
Can I get a copy of the report discussed at the meeting?
  Please see FAQ about Regional Council
   
I've tried all the tips in this page and it is still not working. What should I do?
  If the tips provided on this site did not solve the problem you are experiencing, please contact your internet provider.
