The video player shows an error "Network Error" or "Decode Error"

This generally occurs when the live stream venue is having internet connectivity issues. Try refreshing the page in a few minutes to see if these issues have been resolved.

Additional troubleshooting steps

  1. Ensure you have a supported browser. View supported browsers
  2. Check your internet speed to make sure your internet is fast enough for smooth playback. We recommend a minimum internet download speed of 1.5mbps for video-on-demand content and 4mbps for live event content. How fast is my internet?

  4. "Hard refresh" the page. This is done by pressing the "Ctrl-F5" keys on Windows or "Cmd-Shift-R" on Mac.
  5. Close all instances of your browser then relaunch the browser and try again.

Video playback is very slow

There could be a number of causes resulting in slow or interrupted video playback. In general, if you’re connecting over Wi-Fi and experiencing constant rebuffering or other issues during playback, try moving your router to another location and away from other devices that may cause electrical interference.

We recommend the following:

  • Move your wireless router to a more central location of your home.
  • Move your wireless router to an elevated surface such as a desk or on top of a bookshelf.
  • Clear clutter from the vicinity of your wireless router.
