1.) You will need to log into your MyMediasite account at: http://mediasite.uwplatt.edu/uwp/mymediasite
2.) Once you are inside your account, select the video that is experiencing the issue.
3.) After selecting your video, click on the “Edit” tab.
4.) Once in the “Edit Tab”, click on the “Player” tab found below the video preview window.
