Live stream troubleshooting FAQs

My video is not playing 

Here are some solutions if your live stream is not playing:

  • Check the live stream video has not been paused. This sometimes can happen if you click on the video or maximise the size of the screen. Press play and wait up to two minutes to see if the video recommences.
  • Check you have a functioning internet connection.
  • Turn your device off and back on to see if the issue resolves itself.
  • Check that your internet connection is not being filtered by a security device such as a firewall or proxy. Go into your security settings to check this.

I can only see an image and no live video

Please note that there will be a placeholder image over the video (image of the Council Chambers meeting room) which is only removed once the Council Meeting starts at 7pm.
