The LPCTV Board of Directors engaged in a very productive strategic planning session this week at the Combes Family In. We are looking towards the future and there are many big questions to address. The bottom line is what can we do to serve YOU, the community members? We want to hear from people.
Thanks to Bruce Farr Creative for facilitating and to the Combes Family Inn for providing the space.
There is an issue with Apple Quick Time, the format we chose when we started putting video on the website many years ago. Times have changed & technology has evolved, which has created some problems. We are changing our whole format to a universal player this summer. That's the good news. But for the time being, in order to play video, you need to do the following:
1. Use Firefox or another 32-bit web browser. The reason for this is Quick Time is a 32-bit player, but some new versions of other browsers (such as Google's Chrome) are 64-bit.
2. Have Apple's Quick Time Player installed on your computer. (You can download it for free here)
3. Email us with any issues (or call)
4. For more "light reading" on the subject, check this thread out. This is a known problem and common error with Quick Time video.

After 8 years of employment at LPCTV, Michelle Stinson has left her position here to return to her childhood development. She will still be involved with LPCTV in different capacities but she'll no longer be our main Operations staff. We wish her well with her new endeavor.
