What are the system requirements to play the auction broadcast?
NAFA's broadcast uses adobe flash encoding to transmit the auction over the internet. The audio and video are designed to use very little bandwidth and will work over dialup connections.  Make sure to close other tabs, browsers, and programs while streaming your content. It may also help to hardwire your Internet connection, instead of using a wireless network connection. Note that flash is not supported by natively by IOS on the iPad or iPhone. IOS support http live streaming which requires small files to the browser which results in a much longer delay.
