The video stream is distributed via a wide network of servers located around the globe. Wherever you are, you are pulling the signal from a server close to you. As such, a strong wireless or hard line connection to your device will deliver smooth performance and a high bit-rate stream. A weak or slow connection will cause choppiness and deliver a lower bit-rate stream.
Choose a hard line connection over a wifi or cellular connection whenever possible. Hard line (aka Ethernet) connections carry more data. Wireless options can work if bandwidth is high, but in general they aren't as reliable as Ethernet connections.
Minimize concurrent streams on corporate networks. If you are on a corporate network and others in your company plan to watch, watch together. Too many individual streams on one network will cause network bandwidth strain. Think of it like commuting; the more people car-pool, the less traffic there is on the road, which makes a better ride for everyone.
If possible, you should disconnect from your corporate VPN (Virtual Private Network). The video player often cannot get enough data while tunneling through a VPN, which leads to a poorer experience.
YouTube, social media, music streaming, and other bandwidth/resource consuming activities like network backups, large file downloads (Windows or app updates), and antivirus scanning will steal resources from video streaming. Limit such activity during broadcasts if possible.
Close extraneous programs while viewing. Too many open programs can use up memory and CPU resources valuable to the video player.
Close extraneous tabs or browser windows while viewing. Too many open tabs or browser windows can use up memory and CPU resources valuable to the video player.
Use the most modern browser available to you, and keep it up to date. Browsers regularly update to provide additional security, features and optimizations for a better browsing experience; this includes viewing webcasts. We recommend Google Chrome .
Keep your devices up to date. Manufacturers regularly update to provide additional security, features and optimizations for a better user experience; this includes viewing webcasts.
Reboot your device if it has been running for an extended period. Devices can become sluggish after running continuously for days. This will free up memory to store video data for the player.

Our platform uses Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming to deliver content to you. If you have a strong and fast connection, we can deliver a high-bit rate stream. If your connection is suffering or isn't as fast, our platform automatically delivers a smaller bit-rate stream so that you can watch smoothly. It's like watching a video on YouTube. If you see blocky or blurry video, it means you are pulling down a smaller bit-rate stream due to local network conditions.
