Let's face it, sometimes things happen. If you found a broken link, stale content, or a typo we'd love to hear from you. Please choose one of the aliases below based on the section of the website you encountered the issue on. If you are not sure then please drop us a note at website-content@tableau.com.

Access to a page was denied

If you were denied access to a specific page please check to make sure you are logged in using your Tableau ID. Access the Sign-In portal from the website's header.

Videos appear broken/My screen is black/I received an error message

Brightcove, our video hosting provider, may be blocked within your network. You'll likely need to contact your IT department and review if your organization's network is preventing video playback from Brightcove.

If this doesn’t resolve it then please refer to the list of domains and ports that should be enabled in order for videos to work and refer to the set of Brightcove System Requirements. You may also want to try installing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and ensure JavaScript is enabled in your browser.

As a last resort, you can always download the videos from each video detail page. Find the link labeled MP4 to download and watch.

The most common error messages that you may receive while trying to access On-Demand Training Videos are the following:

  • 200, Stream not found
  • The video connection was lost, please confirm you are connected to the internet. Error Code: MEDIA_ERR_NETWORK
