I have live stream or video playback issues
To enjoy optimal access, ensure you have the following basic settings:
- Connect from a laptop / PC, not from a mobile phone.
- Certain hospitals block streaming pages; if possible, please query this with your workplace IT support before the congress or use your own, personal computer.
- Have a stable internet connection to allow video streaming.
- Use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, the most stable and consistent browsers; Internet Explorer and Edge are not supported.
- Disable pop-up blockers.
- Do not connect via a VPN, if possible.
Please note that multiple simultaneous connections using the same email login are not possible.
Should the video player remain unavailable following a page refresh; it is most likely a security setting on your browser, device, or network that blocking access to the content server. We recommend trying the following:
- Try accessing the site from another browser (which enables you to bypass any browser settings that could be blocking access). If you are on a PC, you should have access to Chrome and if on a Mac it will be Safari.
- Open an incognito window and try to access the content through this; this approached bypasses around any cached or bad data that could be held in the browser.
- Try a different device (e.g. your mobile phone, if you are currently trying to access from a desktop computer).
- Using a different internet connection, a mobile phone with wifi off, so it uses mobile data, is a good option. (This approach bypasses certain aspects, like corporate network restrictions or VPNs that may be presenting an issue.)
- Please note that videos are not hosted on swapcard; the platform only acts as a "gateway" to the event's video content.
