Help with Credit Cards and Signing Up


If you are getting this message please take note of the Gateway Response. Following is a more detailed description of what some of these responses mean:

  • Do Not Honour: This typically means that your bank has flagged this transaction as possibly fraudulent. If you are outside of Australia, your bank may be recognizing that the payment is being made to an Australian company. You will need to contact your bank and advise them to allow this transaction.
  • Function Not Permitted To Cardholder: The type of credit card that you are trying to use is not suitable for this type of payment. The subscriptions on FMTV are all ongoing subscriptions, some cards, particularly DEBIT cards will not allow ongoing payments.
  • Unable to connect to switch or Card Issuer Unavailable: Your bank or our system is not responding or down, this is likely to be a temporary issue. Perhaps try again in couple of hours or contact your bank and see if they are aware of any problems.
  • No Credit Account: In most cases VISA and MasterCard cards will work (except gift cards). Contact your bank if you think you received this error incorrectly.
  • Invalid Transaction: Your bank has rejected the transaction because the information that our website is not in a format your bank recognizes or there is information that your bank requires that has not been included in the transaction. Please contact us during our office hours and we can try processing the payment manually.

Help with Video Playback

Have you tried more than one browser? For example, if you can't get it to work in Internet Explorer, have you tried in Firefox, Chrome or Safari? If you have more than one browser (program to access the internet) installed on your computer, please try to access FMTV through a different browser first.

To help discern if the issue involves javascript please click on the following link (it will open in a new window):

  1. If you can see the see a still image of David Wolfe where the video is, then javascript is likely to be working properly
  2. If you are seeing the message that 'javascript seems to be disabled', then you will need to enable javascript.
  3. If you are not seeing a message about javascript being disabled but the space where the video is supposed to be is green then there may be something on your computer blocking javascript from running. See 'Check Browser Settings' below.

Check Browser Settings

The playback on videos is constantly stopping and starting

Is this happening for all of the videos that you are trying to watch (not including trailers from youtube) or just on one specific video?

If this is happening for a SPECIFIC video(s), and you have tried on more than one occassion, please contact us and let us know the exact video that you are having trouble with. There may be a problem with the video file that we are unaware of.

If this is happening for every video that you are trying to watch some possible reasons are: 1) The servers that host our videos may be busy, particularly if you are trying to access them at a peak time of day. Does this still happen if you try to watch the same videos at a differnt time of day?. 2) Your internet connection is slow/busy. Some of the video files are quite large. Again, please try at a different time of day and see if that makes a difference. Are you able to easily view the videos on If so, please contact us and we will try to discover the cause of the problem.
