Firewall Information

Schools, districts and organizations often have firewalls protecting their networks that can prevent devices from communicating with Hudl’s servers. If you’re experiencing connection issues, make sure to pass the following information on to your IT staff or your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Watching Video on Hudl.com

  • Allow access to Hudl.com.
  • Allow mp2t videos and mp4 videos stream. (Most firewalls can let mp2t's and mp4’s stream for just one website. If this is the case, they need to clear it for Hudl.com.)
  • Clear http://*.hudl.com/ and http://p.jwpcdn.com/*.  Videos stream down from these sites.

If video does not play after following the above steps, make sure existing filters don't conflict with these new rules. You may even need to set these rules higher on your firewall priority list.
