For help installing Java go to Java's download and install page. You'll need to restart your browser after you install or update Java. During the Java install it will ask you if you want to install the Ask toolbar. We recommend that you do not install it with Java.
If you need help, here is a video tutorial on how to upload using the web interface.
You'll need to install a FTP client to upload your shows. We recommend Filezilla, listed below are some of the more popular and free clients:
Once you have downloaded and installed the FTP client you'll need to setup an account:
To setup an account in Filezilla:
Most FTP clients have a panel showing what is on the server and another showing what is on your computer. Usually to upload a file you just have to drag it over to the server panel
In Filezilla the right panel contains your FTP account folder. Just drag the shows you want to upload over to the panel and the upload will start.
If you're having problems with the FTP server, contact Master Control.
