The audio is stuttering or pausing as I listen. What is causing this?

Audio may stutter or pause during playback if your Internet connection is not fast enough or if your computer has an unusually slow processor or little memory. Even on broadband connections, Internet congestion or traffic can result in choppy playback or repeated buffering.

The audio player says I need to update my Flash Player. How do I do that?

Our video and audio players require Flash Player version 9 or higher to be installed on your computer to work. To install or upgrade Flash Player, click on the "Get Adobe Flash Player" button or visit

I don't see an audio player on the page and I have Flash Player installed. What should I do?
