If you need any technical support during the event, we are here to help:
Hours: 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM EST
We recommend Google Chrome for the best results.
While we do support mobile, we have designed the user interface for desktop and tablet viewing.
If you get to the page before the stream starts, you may need to refresh the page when you believe the live stream video should be showing.
First, you should refresh the browser. If there are still streaming issues after you have already refreshed the page, it is most likely your internet speed. To test your internet speed, go to https://www.speedtest.net/. It is recommended that viewers have 5 – 10mbps. For more information about Vimeo live streaming requirements visit https://help.livestream.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002050908-Requirements-Supported-Browsers
After registering with your event organizer, you should have received an email containing this reset password link: https://www.vlinkevents.com/change-password/. Follow this link, enter your email, and look in your inbox for the change password email from us, vLink Solutions. If you can’t find it at first, check your junk folder. Once you find the email with the link in it, click on the link, and you will reach a page where you can enter your new event password.
To join the chat, you must first click on the chat box in the bottom right-hand side of the screen labeled “Join the Discussion” and then log into the event. You may need to allow the browser to access your video camera and microphone to one to one call.
You can one to one chat two different ways, but first you will want to make sure that you are already logged in to the event and able to chat. One option is to click on their name in the main group chat. The other way you can start a direct chat with someone by clicking on the room name, then click “view members”, select the attendee who you would like to chat directly with.
Depending on what room you are in, the navigation bar will either be on the left or right side of the screen. If you are in the event lobby, the navigation bar is on the right side of the screen. If you are in any other room the navigation bar is on the left. You will first have to click the small arrow and then navigate to the room that you would like to visit.
