We constantly monitor the live stream on multiple devices in a variety of locations to ensure it’s quality. If there is a problem with the stream we will let viewers know immediately in the chat box. If you are experiencing problems viewing the stream and there is no announcement in the chat, the likelihood is that the issue is local rather than general. Here are the most common issues viewers encounter:

Browser: Please do not try to watch this stream using internet explorer. Internet explorer does not support live streaming, we recommend using Google Chrome (PC) or Safari (Mac) as your browser to view this live stream and participate in the chat.

Internet speed: The most common issue viewers face is a weak or unreliable WiFi/Broadband signal. As a first point of action simply pause the live stream video for 10 seconds and then press play again. This will allow the video to catch up with itself. If your signal is really weak and dropping out the video will keep freezing or buffering. Check your internet connection using Which Broadband Speed Test. A download speed of 3mbps or higher should mean you are able to play the video. In the worst case scenario try sending the link to this page to your mobile phone and disconnecting your phone from WiFi. If your phone has a good 3G or 4G signal, you should be able to play the video.

Firewalls: If you are attempting to watch this live stream on a device provided by your hospital/employer there may be a built in firewall that blocks live streaming video. This is especially common with devices provided by healthcare organisations. If this is the case please try using your own personal laptop/tablet/phone.

Other wifi users: If you are viewing this live stream from home and other members of your household are also using the WiFi to download files, watch live streaming TV such as Netflix or play online games, this may put undue stress on your WiFi and effect the quality of your stream.

Cloud Services: Live streaming video does not function in many cloud services. Come out of your employer’s Cloud/IT system and open this in an external browser.

Memory: If your device is struggling for memory space the live stream will not play correctly. Reduce the number of other windows and tabs you have open and shut down all unnecessary programmes other than the ones you need to watch this stream.

Battery: Make sure your device is plugged in or has plenty of battery!
