All video on the Rooftop Comedy website is streamed in the Adobe Flash Player. Click here to download the latest version of Flash Player.
Also, you need a pretty decent Internet connection or the video playback will be choppy. For the best playback your Internet connection should support a constant 600Kbit download speed. Most DSL and cable modems should be able to handle it.
Yes. Rooftop Comedy videos are designed to work best with a DSL, Cable Modem, or faster connection. You must be able to sustain a 600Kbps download stream to watch all the videos (although some do pretty well at 350Kbps). If you think your Internet connection should be able to take it, and the video is still choppy, try testing your actual connection speed at free websites such as PCPitstop (www.pcpitstop.com/internet/default.asp) or Speakeasy (www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/). Make sure you're getting the speed you're paying for.
Nah. If you forgot your password and you're NOT logged in, click on "Sign In" at the top of the page (www.rooftopcomedy.com/login/signin). There, you should see a "forgot your password" link. When you click that link, a window should appear asking you for the email address that you used when you first became a member. It's important that the email address you enter match the one you originally registered. If you remember, enter that email address in the form and we'll immediately reset your password to a bunch of crazy letters, and email the new password to the email address you entered. Simply log back into the site with your original Rooftop ID name and new crazy password and you're good to go. If the crazy password is just too crazy to ever remember, click on "My Profile" (www.rooftopcomedy.com/myrooftop/profile) and you can change your password to something else.
If you forgot your Rooftop ID (your login name), send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much stuff as you remember about your login, like what you thought you Rooftop ID was, your email address, your zip code and such, and we'll try to help you out. Don't send your password, as even we don't have access to passwords.
You can if you want, but you don't have to. Any time you log in, you have a choice to "Remember me". If you check this box, we'll remember your password for you and log you in each time you come back to the site (you must have cookies enabled on you browser for this to work). For those security nuts out there, don't worry, we don't actually store your password in the cookie because we know that most people use the same passwords over and over. And no, not even Rooftop Comedy personnel will ever be able to see your password.
We thought a long time about this and think it's the right thing to do (if you don't, please tell send us your opinion at email@example.com). We regularly hold "contests" where viewers get to vote for the funniest comic. We award real cash prizes to the winners, so we want to keep the voting as fair as we possible. So, we only allow each user to vote for any particular clip one time (this keeps Kevin's mom from voting for her son 1,000 times in a row). The easiest way to enforce this one user — one vote is to ask folks to become members. Membership is totally free. And members can vote for as many clips as they like. However, a member can only rate a particular clip one time.
Rooftop Comedy does not support downloading of the clips. We'll stream them to you as much as you like, but you can't download them.
A few things can cause variations in the quality of a clip:
Sorry, we don't allow folks to download the shows.
If nothing else seems to work, shoot us an email at support@RooftopComedy.com. Include the following information:
Our tech folks will do all they can to help you fix the whatever's going on and will get back to you as soon as possible.
