Troubleshooting

In case you are experiencing issues during the live webinar, you can try one of the solutions that are listed below.

I cannot get into the meeting
If you are having trouble joining a meeting, try the following:

  1. Click this link. This takes you to the Test Meeting Connection page where you can verify that your computer meets all necessary requirements. If you do not pass the test you will be given instructions for what you need to do.
  2. Make sure popup blocking software is not blocking your meeting window.
  3. You may be using a proxy server. To resolve this in Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab. Then enable the setting Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections. After doing this, clear your cookies, close all browser windows and attempt to re-enter the meeting.

I cannot hear any audio

  1. Verify that your computer speakers are on (or your headphones/headset are properly connected) and your computer’s volume is at an audible level.
  2. Check to see if the meeting host has provided teleconference information. If this is the case, you need to dial in via telephone to hear the audio.

I have been granted rights to speak, but no one can hear me
If you are having trouble sharing your voice try the following tasks:

  1. Make sure your computer microphone is not muted.
  2. Run through the Audio Setup Wizard. To do this, select Meeting > Audio Setup Wizard. The wizard guides you through five steps in which your computer is tuned for optimal VoIP.
  3. You may have elected to deny the Flash Player access to your computer’s microphone. To verify this, right click in the meeting window and choose Settings to view your Flash Player settings. In the dialog box, choose Allow.

The host is sharing their screen, but it is fuzzy
If you are having trouble seeing a host’s screen, try the following:

  1. Click the Full Screen button on the top of the Share pod.
  2. View the full resolution by using the pod options menu in the top right hand corner of the pod to select Change View > Zoom In.
