Alternate Live Webinar Connection


If you are having problems seeing or hearing the video program, here are some troubleshooting steps:

Issues with Internet connection

You will have a more stable and faster live webinar experience if your computer is connected to a wired internet connection (cable modem, Ethernet, etc) instead of a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection.

Video stopping and starting frequently

  • Refresh the web page that has the live video playing, or try a different Internet browser (such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox or Chrome).
  • Close and re-open your Internet browser, – then re-open the live webinar page
  • If you’re using a slower Internet connection, try closing any other open Internet browsers, tabs, and computer software applications.

Audio is missing

Make sure your audio is selected to go through the proper channel, earphones, speakers, etc – and make sure your audio is not turned all the way down (or muted).

Advanced Troubleshooting

  1. Right-click on the video player window and select “Settings”.
  2. Select the “screen” icon from the choices at the bottom of the window that appears (it’s the leftmost option).
  3. Uncheck “Enable hardware acceleration”.
  4. Close and re-open your browser.
