From September 4 to October 7, 2014, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will explore the largely unknown deep-sea ecosystems of the U.S. Atlantic coast. Our at-sea and shore-based science team will collect baseline data in the Atlantic submarine canyons and along the New England Seamount Chain.

Troubleshooting the Audio and Video Feeds

Note regarding audio: Live video is streaming off the ship with audio from the ROV pilots and audio from the ship-to-shore science conversation. To hear more or less of one of these conversations, adjust the audio settings on your computer to shift the balance right or left, for more science and less pilots or vice versa. On a PC, you can do this through the "speaker/headphones" properties, which can be accessed by clicking on the speaker icon (next to the the clock) and then clicking on the "Levels" tab or by going to your Control Panel, selecting "Hardware and Sound," and selecting "Sound." On a Mac, select System Preferences, Sound, and Output.


You may need to download the Flash browser plugin External Link to view the video feed. If this stream does not play, please try the following temporary fix:

1. Right-click on the player window and select "Settings"
2. Select the TV icon at the lower left of the settings menu.
3. Uncheck the "Enable Hardware acceleration" checkbox
4. Refresh the page.

If you continue to have difficulties, please contact us.
