I See An Error
If you see, “Cannot load M3U8: 400 Bad Request” in the player window, it means that the live stream has not yet been turned on. The stream is typically turned on 15 minutes before the start of the concert.
Image Occasionally Goes Black Or Is Blurry
The image may initially appear blurry for 10-15 seconds as the system determines the appropriate streaming quality level for your computer or mobile device. Although the streaming system should automatically serve you the ideal quality your internet connection speed, you can manually select a quality by clicking on the “HD” button in the lower right corner of the player window. We suggest keeping it on “Auto” unless you are having trouble. Selecting too high of a level will cause your stream to be interrupted or freeze.
