Tips and troubleshooting

Use the best network connection possible – wired is better than wireless. You can run a speed test to determine your download speed.

Close all applications except those necessary for the webcast. This frees up the computer for better performance. A possible cause of choppiness or pausing playback is insufficient CPU resources on the broadcaster or the viewer side. If you have an older computer, its graphics card may have a difficult time encoding and decoding live and recorded video. We recommend shutting down all other applications and browser tabs / windows while broadcasting and viewing if you are experiencing playback problems.

If you’re using a laptop, avoid running on battery: it can reduce performance.
