WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I’M EXPERIENCING CONNECTION ISSUES DURING THE SHOW (E.G. VIDEO IS FREEZING OR AUDIO IS NOT WORKING)?

Your video may need a minute to load. If it is not playing continuously, try pausing it and stepping away for a few minutes and then continuing the show once it’s had a chance to pre-load more of the performance. If you are experiencing connection issues, it may be related to your browser settings, internet bandwidth, or it’s a device-specific issue. While we can’t guarantee and may not be able to troubleshoot the performance of your specific hardware setup, we have a few recommendations that we hope will help:

  • Pause the video to allow it to load more fully.
  • Make sure you have the most updated version of the software you’re using.
  • Refresh your browser page or try switching to a completely different browser.
  • Make sure there are no other devices connected to your wi-fi that could be creating network traffic.
  • Try connecting to your personal Hotspot on your phone.
  • Restart your wi-fi router.
  • Try switching to a different device.

If you continue experiencing troubles, please email Karen Badgett.
