I've logged in via a method above but the webinar is not loading

If you've clicked on your access link but see an infinitely loading circle, this means that you are on a protected network or firewall. To fix this problem, you will need to:

1. Turn off the firewall or use a different network, or     
2. Use your mobile's 4G network or connect via mobile

Problem with audio or video?

Tips for accessing a webinar

  • If possible, use a modern browser, otherwise, you will fall back to compatibility mode
  • 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 a webinar on a protected network. If your network is protected by a restrictive firewall, you will  fall back t o compatibility mode. Use this platform to test your network. If "Media Server" is in red then you are in a secure network behind a firewall. You can also send us the results (help@livestorm.co). To fix this problem: change network, turn off the firewall or share your 4G network.
