Virtual Replay help guide
How to view Virtual Replay

To play Virtual Replay select your preferred action from the match by clicking on any of the icons on the timeline or the 'watch animation' links in the text commentary.

While the matches are live you can watch basic animations of all the shots, goals and other key incidents.

Downloading and Installing the Shockwave Player

The Virtual Replay animations require Shockwave plug-in version 10 or later. You can download and install the latest version of the Shockwave plug-in from Adobe. This page detects the browser you are using and downloads the appropriate Shockwave installation file for your system.

Can't download Shockwave player
Your browser may have a Shockwave player already installed. This may be damaged and could prevent you downloading the latest player. This can be fixed by uninstalling the old player.

> Find an uninstaller for Windows hereor for Mac here.

> Remove the player and then re-install it.

> For more detailed information go to Webwise download guide.

Shockwave player isn't working
If your Shockwave player doesn't work after installation, it may be because:

> You have more than one copy or version of your browser on your hard drive. Make sure the plug-in is installed in the copy or version you are using.

> You're not using the right plug-in for your system and browser. A 16-bit browser will not support a 32-bit version of the plug-in, and vice versa.

> You have a version of the Shockwave plug-in that is no longer supported. Uninstall the old one and install a new version, and check that your browser can support this newer version.

> If none of this works, detailed help for both Windowsand Mac users is available from Adobe.
