What is GoLobos.com?
http://www.golobos.com/ is the official web site of the University of New MexicoAthletics Department. GoLobos.com is available to everyone who can access the Internet and contains articles, press releases, statistical information and other important content provided by the GoLobos.com Sports Information Department within.
Why do I have to login every time I try to watch a video?
Videos are premium subscriber content and you need an active account to login and view. Once you are logged in, you will not have to log in again to watch premium content until the next time you access the site.
The video doesn't look very good:
We recommend increasing your buffer time. This will make the initial download slower, but will make the streaming video run smoothly once it has started. While increasing your buffer time, you might also want to try adjusting the video acceleration to halfway, instead of full.
To find these options, open the program Windows Media Player and press the ALT button on your keyboard. You will then see a small options menu open. Select "Tools," and then go to "Options."
Once you are in "Options," look for the "Performance" tab. This is where you will find both the buffer length, and video acceleration. Try setting the buffer length to 20 seconds, applying the options, and then refresh your stream.
Why can I access the content at home but not while at work, a hotel, school, etc.?
I have high-speed wireless internet, but still seem to be having buffering problems?
I cannot view the content:
- There may be an error with your browser. Try closing the browser, reopening it, and accessing it again.
- If you experience any further problems, please contact Customer Service here
I cannot sign in:
How can I change my password, login ID or email?
I forgot my password
To get your password, enter your account id as you normally would when logging in. For the password field, enter an incorrect password.

I purchased a Pay Per View event but I cannot login. Was my account not setup correctly?
Pay-Per View events allow you to have access for that event only. Therefore, your login information will not work until an hour before the event?s start time. If you continue to have issues logging in during the hour prior to the event?s start time, please contact customer support.
I cannot get the audio to play
Check the following knowledge base articles from Microsoft for possible solutions:

Make sure you are up to date with the critical and driver updates from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
There can be an issue if you have both the Java VM and the Microsoft VM installed. In Internet Explorer go to Tools -> Internet Options and click the Advanced tab. Scroll down about half way and look for the heading "Microsoft VM" and make sure the "JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled" option is checked. You will have to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
To check for the Java VM, go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel. Look for a program called "Java Plug-in 1.x.x". If there, open it up and make sure the "Enable Java Plug-in" is unchecked. You will have to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
Or you can enable the Java VM and disable the Microsoft VM, whichever you prefer.

I have an Apple computer. Are your services compatible with OS X?
Our service has been tested with the latest versions of Safari and Firefox for OS X. You will need to install Windows Media Player 11 for OS X. Please see the link below for download.
Windows Media Player 11 for OS X is located at the link below: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx
You will also need to download Flip4Mac http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx
When I select a live/On-Demand broadcast the media player say transitioning and never plays. Are there technical difficulties with the broadcast?
This issue is with your Windows Media Player settings. Close any open web browsers and open Windows Media Player. In Windows Media Player, choose Tools from the top menu. If you can not see the top menu, press the Alt key on your keyboard. This will highlight the word File and will show the other categories. Once you click on Tools, click on Options. From here, click on the network tab. You will then see four options that are checked off. When you are on this screen, please uncheck UDP. After that, click Apply and then click OK.
I have a router/firewall. Will that cause problems with broadcasts?
Can I link my site to GoLobos.com?
Yes, you are allowed to link to http://www. GoLobos.com /. Unless you have our written permission, you must link to the main page rather than a specific page inside the site. If your site is frame-based, we require that GoLobos.com opens in a new frame rather than in a frame on your site.
Can GoLobos.com link to my site?
