Some Apple device users have reported an issue when accessing videos via Interact2 where videos are automatically playing and overriding other content. To prevent this, follow the steps to prevent cross-site tracking in Safari on Mac.

Troubleshooting CSU Replay

When you are playing a CSU Replay recording, the playback will be auto detected for your bandwidth. If you wish to override these settings, click on the Quality button to High or Medium from Automatic.

Connection options

  • Auto-Select - configured by default and will detect your connection speed to the server.
  • High - forces the streaming content to be sent at the high quality. Selecting this on a slower internet connection can result in a poor viewing experience.
  • Medium – a lower resolution video that will stream quicker. This is helpful if you find that your internet connection speed varies and your playback buffers regularly.

CSU Replay is compatible with screen readers. See more information about accessibility features.
