You may not have sufficient bandwidth to view the videos. For example, a 56k modem or lower may not be enough to view the videos. We recommend you try to get a direct connection to the internet elsewhere if possible. (Preferably a DSL or Cable connection)

Also if you are "piggybacking" your connection from somewhere else, you may find the bandwidth considerably slower.


Microsoft made a decision to change the way ActiveX objects are handled in Internet Explorer, due to a patent law suit by EOLAS. This means users must first click on the control before it will recognize any input.

If you use a different browser, for example: Firefox, Opera, or Safari, you shouldn't run into this issue.


Here is one user's suggestion:

  1. right click Quick Time-->Quick Time Preferences--> Audio Tab-->
  2. under Sound Out - change the Rate: to 192kHz and the Size: to 24 bit

The following are some other suggestions if the above did not help:

If the settings in your QuickTime control panel are not compatible with your computer's sound card the sound can become distorted or garbled. For many machines, you'll need to put the "Sound Out" control setting to "WaveOut" in order for it to work. Sometimes the "Direct Sound" setting works poorly."

Here is a suggestion you can try to see if it solves the issue:

Using Windows 2000:

  1. On your PC, click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
  2. Select "Sounds and Multimedia" and double-click it to open.
  3. In the resulting window, select the "Audio" tab.
  4. Under the "Sound Playback" section, click on the "Advanced" button.
  5. In the resulting window, select the "Performance" tab.
  6. Move the slider beside "Hardware acceleration" to "None", and the one beside "Sample rate conversion quality" to "Best".
  7. Click "OK".
  8. In the original "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" window, click "OK".
  9. Close the Control Panel.

Using Windows XP:

  1. On your PC, click Start > Control Panel.
  2. Select "Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices" and click it to open.
  3. In the resulting window, select the "Sounds and Devices" tab.
  4. Under the "Audio" Tab, Playback section, click on the "Advanced" button.
  5. In the resulting window, select the "Performance" tab.
  6. Move the slider beside "Hardware acceleration" to "None", and the one beside "Sample rate conversion quality" to "Best".
  7. Click "OK".
  8. In the original "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" window, click "OK".
  9. Close the Control Panel.


If you don't have administrator access on your computer, you may not be able to install the Flash Player successfully. You will have to ask whoever is the Administrator (Admin, Parent, etc) for your computer to install Flash Player 9 or higher onto your computer for you.

If you have problems installing Adobe Flash Player, follow the troubleshooting steps in this article from Adobe. If one step does not correct the problem, move on to the next step. After each step, you may want to restart your machine to ensure that your changes take effect before moving on to the next step.


3rd Party 'Flash Player' Cleaners
In some cases you may have run a non-Adobe 'fix' for Flash Player permission problems. In some cases these tools can actually cause further Flash Player problems. If you have run any type of registry cleaner or other fix tool Adobe suggests you run the /clean uninstaller discussed in "Safe versions security restrictions when installing Flash Player" (TechNote kb402435), then reinstall Flash Player.

Pop-up blockers
A common cause of Flash movies failing to display is the presence of pop-up/ad blocker software that specifically targets Flash content. To find out more about this issue, see "Flash movies do not appear after installing the Flash Player" (TechNote tn_19091).

Internet utilities blocking Flash Player
Some Internet utilities, such as Norton Internet Utilities, perform functions similar to a firewall and may restrict viewing of ActiveX controls, and in some cases specifically blocking Flash content. You need to ensure that your firewall or utility settings are set to allow ActiveX controls and Flash (SWF) content.

You can read more about this here on Adobe's website in their Technote titled, "Troubleshoot Adobe Flash Player Installation for Windows".

You can also try viewing Spatulatta on a different browser, such as Mozilla's Firefox. You can get it for free here.

Send us an email listing the problem, what type of computer you are using (MAC, PC, etc), what operating system you are using (Vista, Windows 2000, OS 10.5, etc). If you can include a screenshot of the problem that helps immensely.
