Why does video playback stall or not play smoothly?
Our concerts stream on Vimeo. Vimeo uses adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed provided by your internet service provider. If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback. If you’re on Wi-Fi, try moving closer to your router.
Why is the streaming video frequently buffering during playback?
Frequent buffering can occur when the viewer’s Internet bandwidth does not support playback of the selected video quality. Try switching to “Auto” in the quality menu of the Vimeo video player (the default), if available. If “Auto” is not available, switch to one of the lower quality options. If your video still fails to start, check your estimated bandwidth on Vimeo's 'Test My Internet Speed' web application.
Why are the video frames dropping during playback?
Dropped frames can occur if your machine/device’s processing is unable to keep up with the video data that’s being transferred. If your system cannot process a higher quality of video, frames of video may be skipped, which can cause audio to become out of sync as well. This tends to happen most when multiple programs are running while viewing video. Try closing unused applications or browser tabs and/or update your browser and graphics card.
Why do I see a black screen if I am watching content with Airplay on my TV?
You likely have “Screen Mirroring” turned on in your device settings. Please turn off the screen mirroring setting and start AirPlay by selecting the AirPlay button in the bottom right-hand side of the player.
