Tips for broadcast clips

The radio and TV broadcasts appear in playback clips of approximately one minute in duration. If a particular clip doesn’t include the portion of the broadcast that you wish to hear or see, you can access other segments of the playback clip by following these instructions:

  • You’ll need to use the green and red highlighter tools found in the main screen window in the toolbar just to the left of the camera icon.
  • First, select with the green highlighter from the text on the right-hand side of your browser window where you want to begin the broadcast.
  • Once selected, click on the red “end” highlighter and drag that red highlighter to wherever you’d like to finish within the broadcast.
  • There is a limit of 10 minutes at a time to listen or watch uninterrupted within the Critical Mention platform. But you can extend the highlighted selection, using the highlighter tools, in intervals of 10 minutes to view or listen to the rest of the broadcast.
  • Please note the playback clips will expire and won't be accessible 30 days after the date of broadcast.
