I'm having trouble with the video buffering.


The event will be streaming in the highest possible quality. If you experience buffering (pauses in your stream) or issues with viewing the video stream, you may have a better viewing experience by reducing the quality to SD manually.

I’m having issues seeing/hearing the video.

The quality of your playback experience is largely dependent on how your internet service provider connects to the streamers playback servers. Please keep in mind that your internet speed can vary depending on many factors, including but not limited to: time of day, WiFi performance, other devices/ users utilizing your connection, and the strength of the signal provided by your ISP.

  • First, check that your internet connection is active. If it’s not, please restart your router.
