Playback Issues

Cannot Load M3U8 404 not found
Usually means the Live stream is not on at this time. Be sure to check the show schedule and verify the local time of the show. We usually start the feed about 30 minutes prior to the start and will post updates in the video if needed.

Video stutters frequently
It looks like the bit rate of live video may be too high for your internet connection. For best playback, be sure to have a minimum of 500kbps download speed available and avoid other downloading activity. You can check your
available bandwidth at the following third-party site.

In addition to bandwidth, CPU resources are important to monitor. If your CPU is running at or above 75%, you may encounter choppy playback. To check your computer’s CPU usage, please do the following:


On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Alt+Del. Then select “Task Manager”. CPU usage is reported under the “Performance” tab.

Open your Applications folder and choose the Utility folder. Locate and open the Activity Monitor application.

At the bottom of the screen, CPU activity is reported.

To free up CPU resources, it may be necessary to close other applications or background services that are running at the same time as your web browser.

Some anti-virus applications or security features such as firewalls may block or prevent the timely delivery of media content.
Temporarily disabling these features during playback may improve your experience while viewing video content.
