* For Internet Explorer, the audio and video playback works with Windows Media Player ActiveX component which allows using the Verba Media Codec to playback non-standard formats as well. For other browsers, the audio and video playback works with HTML5 audio and video capabilities.

**  Audio is automatically transcoded to PCM Wave or MP3 on the server-side for playback. For silent monitoring, a network connection is required with the Recording Server to receive the audio streams in real time.

*** Files are not displayed in the player/viewer, they are automatically downloaded and can be opened on the desktop computer with corresponding applications

Test whether the required components are properly installed or not, by clicking on the waveform icon left to the Verba Player title in the top-left corner of the player frame. This test feature is only available when a recorded media file is selected to play from a conversation list. If one of the required components are not properly installed the test will fail.
