FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need webcam and microphone when accessing the live streaming?
No, you will not need the microphone and webcam for attending the online streaming. However, have a pair of headphone with you will be handy if your speaker’s volume is low or you are surrounded in a noisy environment.
I cannot see the video appears on the page at all.
This would be very rare if happens, as most of the current web browsers are capable to run the online streaming video without any issue, should you experience this issue, please update your web browser to the current version, we recommend all major web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox.
Is there a delay between what I am watching and what is happening?
The answer is yes and the delay is about 12-15 seconds when the video feed is being sent to the stream server where it is then transcoded for streaming. The added processing the video must go through when it is uploaded causes this delay. Unfortunately, this delay is unavoidable due to the nature of the live streaming process. However as a viewer, you will not feel any difference, in the case of any question and answer to the online participant as yourself, our speakers and facilitators are aware of this delay so they will allow plenty time for your response and comment.
