- Presentation -- displays webcast presentations sorted by date, time and presentation title
- Session (summary) -- displays the sessions available, sorted by date, time and presentation title
- Session (with details) -- displays the sessions available with presentation information, also sorted by date, time and presentation title

Search Filters -- use the extensive search filters to narrow your search by year, conference, access (paid or free), availability and speaker participation type.
Participation in AACR webcasts is left to the discretion of each speaker. As a result, some presentations may not be available for webcast, and some webcast presentations may not include all slides. The permission status of each speaker listed can be found by viewing the session or presentation detail.
Technical Support Information
Webcasts are available on supported versions of both Windows and Macintosh computers and require an up-to-date Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer.
Check now to determine from Adobe if you have an up-to-date of the Flash Player installed on your computer.
Video webcasts require that you have a broadband Internet connection with at least 300kbps of download connectivity. If you are having difficulty with playback of a video webcast, for example playback is buffering frequently, select the "Audio" link which requires less bandwidth than the video webcasts. While this option does synchronize the static slides in the presentations, it does not include any videos embedded in the presentation to limit the bandwidth demands of this option. If you have trouble with the audio webcast, you may not have sufficient bandwidth on your Internet connection to view the webcasts.
If you are still having trouble viewing the webcasts, please carefully review the detailed System Requirements and Troubleshooting Steps Web page for further support information.
Mobile Device Supported Platforms
Apple iOS devices (Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch 4.3.x)

Users with a supported mobile device listed above and an enabled Internet connection can stream slide presentation video directly from the webcast navigation page. Please note that some advanced interactivity features of the desktop player are not supported on mobile devices.
Accessing on Desktop Computers
For each session, users may access sessions in two different versions of the media player:
- Slide video -- video of the speaker's slide presentation is the default stream displayed in the player. This option displays all speaker mouse movements and videos included in presentations.
- Audio -- audio of the speaker's presentation is the default stream in the player. Static slide images in the slide presentations are synchronized to the audio stream. As noted, videos embedded in the presentation are not included in this option to limit the amount of bandwidth needed to view the presentation.
Some selected sessions also include podium video where video of the presenter synchronized to the speaker's slide presentation is included as a webcast option.
