Playback is achieved using the Microsoft Silverlight browser plugin. This player is a Silverlight 1.0 application, and has been tested to work on most computer/laptop platforms (Windows/Mac/Linux). An installation link should be automatically provided from the playback window if you do not currently have the plugin installed. Otherwise, direct links have been provided on the upper right for direct download.

Google Chrome does not work with this site, as the player requires Microsoft Silverlight. Please use a different browser if you normally use Chrome.

This stream will be delivered at 1.5Mbps, to provide high quality video. If you are not on a fast connection, your video may pause periodically, due to stream buffering.

Click Here if you would prefer to view the live ceremony in Windows Media Player (or VLC for Mac).

A cycling USF logo (with the USF alma mater in the background) will be playing until the ceremonies begin, and will also be shown between each of the sessions. This will serve as a playback test, to ensure that your computer is configured correctly.

The live feed will appear as the ceremonies begin.

NOTE - music normally plays before the event, but the audio is usually muted up until a few moments before the event starts. If this happens, you have not lost audio; the production crew has simply muted the microphones. Audio will resume as soon as the event begins.

Silverlight is a web-based plugin, and loads on the fly much like Adobe Flash. Links are provided on the top right corner to update your software, if needed.

Should you have troubles viewing the event, you may call the USF Help Desk at

Banzai Audio-Visual Productions, who has graciously provided the video feed for us, will be producing high-quality DVDs and VHS tapes that will be available to relatives unable to watch the live feed, or those who wish to save their memories for the years to come. This event will be recorded on professional equipment, and the media for sale is of far superior quality (DVD quality) than what you see here.
