Town Hall Streams playback problem

Some of you may experience problems playing select board meetings on Town Hall Streams.  The main issue seems to be a compatibility problem with some browsers and the version of Adobe Flash that they use.  It usually occurs for Windows users and on phones other than iPhones.  Currently Windows users are seeing the following message while viewing programs on Town Hall Streams:
Attention Viewers: We are experiencing some issues with the Chrome browser on Windows. Until this is resolved, please use another.”   

The solution to the issue is to upgrade your Adobe Flash player to the latest version.  You can do this by clicking on the Adobe Flash upgrade link and follow the instructions.  (You might want to uncheck the Optional Offers.)

Wachusett Now

Crew with Dr. Darryll McCall

Wachusett Now is a combined production of Sterling-Lancaster Community Television and Holden Community Television production units. The purpose of the productions is to highlight for residents of the five Wachusett Regional School District towns the day-to-day programs and student activities, place a focus on the facilities themselves, and give the superintendent an opportunity to inform residents of what is regularly going on in the district schools.

The Holden and Sterling-Lancaster community television crews will focus their efforts on  featuring each of the district schools in turn. Superintendent Dr. Darryll McCall was enthusiastic when asked for his help in the project.

See the article in The Landmark for additional details.
