hlcarleton Hi,
I just tried one of the free lectures(Easter) and I can't hear anything. I want to access some of the other audio lectures, but there's no sense in paying if I can't use them :\

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using windows98, I updated java about a month ago, I checked all my audio settings...

Have you tried adjusting the audio slider bar on the lecture page? Did you check to see if your speakers have been muted or turned way down via the Windows audio control? Do the speakers work in other applications? Have you tried the speakers in other java applications (use google to locate)?

I believe this is a problem at your end, and isn't a problem with the lectures.

hlcarleton I never meant to imply that the problem was with the lectures, I was just hoping someone may have experienced something similar and would be able to give me some suggestions.

I moved the the slide all the way up for both Voice and Moves(and variations of the two).

My speakers work fine.

The only other audio problems I have with java is on KGS, with the audio lessons there I get a message saying that the program couldn't play the audio(or something to that affect).

I've tried turning off my anti-virus, and pretty much every non-essential programs running in the background.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

bobbacon Hi, Ottomated:

Are you sure last month's java update succeeded? You can check at http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

Since your Windows OS is 10 years old, it's possible that some .dlls or drivers have become corrupt, or may simply not be up to the task of running Java correctly. I have a win98 machine around here, someplace, and I'll try to hook it up and see how it does, but I won't get to that for at least a day or two.

bobbacon Hi, Ottomated:

I tried listening to a lecture on a Windows 98 machine and I couldn't get audio, either. It may be that Win98 simply can't support java... I saw a disclaimer to that effect on the sun site. Is it possible for you to upgrade to a newer version of Windows, or, better yet, to Linux? I've been using a dual boot Linux/Windows machine at home for a few years, and I spend 99.9% of my time in Linux.

If I run across a Win98 solution to your problem, I'll get back to you.

Any other users out there successfully using Windows 98? If so, is it second edition? Did you do anything extra to make it work?

cassietwinoaks hi, I'm having the same problem in addition to not being able to locate the audio slider bar. Could someone please tell me where it is?
