Trouble Streaming?

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why am I hearing the wrong language?

a. Within the video window, along the bottom there are several icons. Click the headphones icon. That will bring up a list of available languages you can select. 

2. Why are captions taking so long to load? 

a. Captions can sometimes take up to a minute or so to start displaying. 

3. Why aren’t captions in my language?

a. At this time, we only support captions in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

4. Why are the audio and video not matching up?

Tips to ensure a successful streaming experience

1. Free-up your computer’s experience

a. Close other applications or browser windows on your computer using internet and computer resources.

b. Free-up bandwidth on your network.

i. If you are connecting from a meetinghouse or an office building, gather people into a single room and connect one device to a single TV/Projector.

ii. A wired connection will be the most reliable way to stream video.

iii. If you are connected wirelessly, disconnect other devices from the network whenever possible.

c. Select fixed video rendition:

i. In the player there is a cog icon. Click that icon and you can select a fixed rendition you would like to stream. By default, it is set to auto which will try to account for your connection. By selecting a lower rendition, for example 360p, your quality will be fixed and can help mitigate rebuffering.
