  • Have a minimum bandwidth of 5MBs download.
  • Have a proper screen size to have a legible video (above 1280 pixels wide). Livestorm is responsive on mobile devices but the experience is always better on a regular screen.
  • If possible, do not watch an event on a protected network. If your network is protected by a restrictive firewall, you will fall back to compatibility mode.
