Troubleshooting The Event Videocast:

Please take a moment to read these “troubleshooting” instructions. It is a good idea to print this out and have it with you when logging in.

Live Interactive Chat Login: [Only when ordered]

Just sign in on the Chat screen using your name just the one time (no password required) and type your messages in the “message” box to communicate with the moderator during the event. The moderator will pass your messages along to the presenter who can respond either during or after their presentation

IMPORTANT NOTE: For all Mac, iPhone and iPad users to be able to view the webcast, especially with the newer iOS platforms 11 and 12, please click here to see these instructions on how to set up your devices. This is a workaround for an Apple issue with live streams.

Audio Issues:

  1. If you are unable to hear the audio, please unmute the speaker icon on the bottom left of the video player – also please make sure your computer speakers are connected, turned on and the volume is turned up.
  2. If you hear a lot of audio feedback and/or echoes in the audio, it is likely that your computer microphone is active. To get rid of feedback, either disable your computer’s microphone or use a headset to bypass your computer’s speakers.

Video Issues:

  1. If the Stream is interrupted/stalled/etc. (which is very unlikely) all you may need to do is refresh your browser – use the View menu > Refresh.
  2. If you are still unable to see/hear the video or access the Chat Feature, it is likely that your Browser Security is set very high and may need to be lowered in Tools>Internet Options>Security (or Privacy) settings.
  3. If the video or audio is jerky or subject to frequent freezing or buffering, it means that your Internet connection is too slow and/or you may be using a shared or Wi-Fi connection. This can be especially troublesome if you are in a public or office environment where you are sharing the Internet Connection with other users.

For Office Networks:

Office networks are a frequent source of problems. If you are on your office network, it is possible that you may be unable to access the Video. This is caused by the firewalls of many office networks, which block multi-media platforms for security reasons.

Solution: get help from your office IT person – request your IT person to test access the Event Web Page well before the event (even on the previous day). If the office firewall is correctly configured a black video screen with a small ‘buffer animation’ will be visible.

If the office firewall is still blocking the stream, you should plan on watching the Webcast from your home computer.
