Techncial Trouble Shooting:

Problem 1 : Video stops or stalls during play. Solution 1: Wait a few seconds for the video to "buffer". Buffering occurs while your computer is waiting for the information to stream and/or your computer is processing the information. Solution 2: Push pause on internet player and wait for video to "buffer". Sometimes your playback function on your internet player is moving faster than the rate your video is loading. You will see the load line on your player begin to "buffer" while your wait. This indicates that the video is loading. Press play after a few moments and your video should start playing again. Solution 3: Make sure you have a high speed internet connection and a computer with a newer processor.

Problem 2 : Video does not start to play when I push the play button. Solution 1: If you are using an older version of Internet Explorer there are some conflicts with the Adobe Flash Viewer that allows Prospecting Channel to play video on your computer. Instead of using Internet Explorer, download FireFox for your PC or Mac. It is free at this site: If you are using a MAC, Prospecting plays well with your Safari Browser.

History of Site:

I founded this site to continue providing prospecting related programming to people who enjoyed watching the shows I produced for The Outdoor Channel and GPAA. Those shows are: Prospecting America, Alaska Gold Expedition and LDMA shows. I also created this site because I love the adventure that seems to naturally coincide with prospecting. Filling this site up with prospecting information and creating prospecting related television shows should enable me to continue the adventures I seek and at the same time provide prospectors everywhere with these values.
