Live Video Streaming
In order to improve the experience of viewing WTHR.com's live video streams and to keep up with the latest technology, we have made an change that uses Microsoft's Silverlight system. This change will also allow more people to be able to watch our live streams.
This may require you to install Silverlight on your computer. If you do not have Silverlight already on your system, when you click on the link for the live video stream you will see a link to a Microsoft web site that will assist you in the installation.
Below is a chart explaining which version of Silverlight you'll need for your computer and what the minimal requirements are.
