Ghub relies on two formats of video files, MP4 (MPEG-4) mostly used for podcasts but also can be viewed directly on your computer, and Windows Media Player which is used by older lectures and seminars. In general we suggest Apple Quicktime for playing MP4 files, however there are a variety of MP4 players available.
We recommend VideoLAN.org's VLC - Media Player, a free cross-platform media player that supports a large number of multimedia formats, without the need for additional codecs. It will play both the MP4 and Windows Media Player files. You will have to copy and paste the video URL from your browser to the VLC player (menu file->open network). Below are operating system specific issues for those using Windows Media Player.
Below is a list of OS specific player issues:
