Issues With Multimedia Loading

The first thing to try when the site doesn't seem to be working properly or files are taking a long time to load is to refresh your session. Click Escape three times in a row, and a diagnostic window will appear. Click "Refresh session." This diagnostic window also tells you whether or not you are logged in. You must be logged in to create playlists, bookmarks, and clips.
