Pema thanks you for joining her and 10,000 others on this birthday retreat! Below are options for viewing Pema’s special video message prepared just for retreat participants.
View streaming video (best for fast internet connections and faster computers)
Download video in advance (best for slower / unreliable internet connections or slower computers)
Technical details: If you have a slower internet connection, or your computer itself is an older, slower model, you should download the video ahead of the time you want to watch it. It will appear on your computer in the location that downloads usually appear. The file format is MP4, and when you click on the file, your computer will decide (based on that file format) which application to use to display the video (often, QuickTime for Macintosh computers, or Windows Media Player for Windows computers).
Some browsers will also open the downloaded video in a new browser window and start streaming it. If your computer does that, and the playback is smooth, you can view the video that way too.
If you try one of the streaming video options, but the video keeps stopping or stuttering, then try downloading the video instead. We suggest testing well in advance, so your retreat will be smooth and serene!
