You can try this link: Play this lecture using an external video player. This will only work if you have a player installed that works with RTSP video streams (e.g., VLC Media Player) and your browser is configured to use it.
In general you are more likely to see this message on Linux or Android because media support on those platforms is inconsistent.
Agriculture & Applied Economics Public Lecture, Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Dr. Yoram Bauman
Economics of Carbon Taxes Abstract: Dr. Bauman is the founder of CarbonWA, a non-profit meant to create bi-partisan support for a revenue-neutral carbon tax. The initiative, however, became heavily politicized, with environmental groups uniting against the policy. Dr. Bauman will explain to attendees why many economists favor a carbon tax as an efficient strategy to combat climate change and the political landscape that ultimately resulted in the failure of I-732 (59% to 41%).
The player will try to chose the best quality stream that will work with your network connection. On some platforms there will be an HD menu where you can manually chose the playback quality - if you experience problems try selecting a lower setting. 1080P requires approximately 8 Mbps - most cable modems should handle this. 720P requires 4 Mbps, 540P (DVD quality) requires 1.5 Mbps.
If you still have problems you can try downloading the lecture here (for recorded lectures only, not live streams): 1080P 720P 540P
