To view the large (640 x 480) QuickTime streaming seminars, we recommend the following minimum configuration:
To view the iBioSeminars you will need to have QuickTime 7 Player installed on your computer. We recommend QuickTime version 7.4 or greater. Version 6 and lower will not work. QuickTime 7 takes advantage of the latest video compression technology called H.264 which creates much smaller files than previous codecs — without sacrificing any quality.
Here's how to tell which version of QuickTime you have:
On a Mac, launch QuickTime Player in your Applications folder, and select the menu item About QuickTime from the QuickTime Player menu.
On a Windows machine, click the QuickTime icon (looks like a Q) in the System Tray, then select About QuickTime. Depending on the settings, however, the Quicktime icon may not appear in the System Tray. In that event, you will need to locate the QuickTime Player (by using Start:Programs:QuickTime:QuickTime Player), launch it, and select the About QuickTime Player menu item from the Help menu.
