Any tips for streaming?
To ensure optimal streaming experience, it may help to close other tabs, browsers, and applications while streaming your content. It may also help to hardwire your internet connection instead of using a wireless network connection.
If you are on a wifi connection and have several devices using one router, it might be helpful to disconnect those other devices from the network. If you have a dual or tri band router, you may have a better stream when connected to the higher, 5 GHz band. Additional info on wireless frequencies can be found here.
What Browser should I use?
Can I watch my event on my TV?
You can connect an HDMI cable from your computer to your TV to watch the screening on your TV. If your computer is connected to an older TV or monitor and/or you are using an older HDMI cable and are unable to watch using the Safari web browser, please try accessing the screening using a different browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox. Please see this article for additional assistance in connecting your computer to a TV using HDMI.
To connect your laptop or computer using an HDMI cable, make sure your computer is close enough to your Television for the HDMI cable to reach between them safely. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the TV. Take note of the HDMI input number it is being connected to. Plug the other end of the cable into your laptop's HDMI out port. Set the TV to the HDMI Input port that the computer is connected to using the source or display button on your TV remote. If your computer's display does not automatically appear on your television screen, you may need to have the computer manually detect the display.
Right-click on the desktop > Display Settings > Click Detect > Click the Multiple displays drop-down box and select Duplicate these displays) > Click Apply.
Go to the Apple Menu > choose System Preferences > Choose the Displays panel > Hold down the “Option” key to show the Detect Displays button — note that it replaces the Gather Windows button (click on Detect Displays while holding down Option to use the function as intended).
What does my ticket include?
