What should I do if I am having technical difficulties while watching online?

Here are some troubleshooting ideas you can try if you have difficulties viewing our live digital events.

1.       If the video or audio is lagging, reduce the resolution of the feed by clicking in the lower right corner of the screen.

2.       If you’re still having trouble it may be due to your internet connection. Ask other users in your home to stop using the internet while you watch the stream.

3.       Try refreshing your page.

Our stream is run through our Vimeo Live platform. You can find more troubleshooting ideas here.
