Happy Mousey Monday from Cache and Cookies! Professor Mousey wants to bring to your attention the different Media Streaming Settings available to you under your Discovery Education account. The streaming settings can be changed by selecting the pinwheel icon at the bottom right corner of the video.
Once you have selected the pinwheel, the Media Streaming Settings available for your school will be listed out. Schools have the option of turning on some or all of the format streaming settings.

The Windows settings are for PC users wanting to use Windows Media Player.
The QuickTime settings are for MAC users wanting to use QuickTime.
