Want to watch a recording of your event? 

Please note that after our event recordings usually go live within 20 minutes after the event in an “early archive”.  You may need to skip ahead as this usually includes a 15 leader at the beginning.

Within 4 hours after the event a permanent recording will replace the early archive with the higher quality with no leaders.  If your event comes with downloads they can take as much as 4 hours as well.

If we have any problems we will post it on the page so you can see the Estimated Time of Arrival.

This way you can view the event in your own time until the expire date that is stated on product page where you purchased your event.


Having difficulty with Audio or No Sound.

While watching our events you will have two separate volume controls, one on your computer (bottom right corner of your monitor)  and the other control will be on the video player (bottom right corner of your video player where you are viewing your event from)

Make adjustments as needed to raised the volume and if you are not receiving any volume make sure both of these areas are not muted. Mute is usually indicated by at speaker with an X over it.  Clicking on it will unmute the player.


I am experiencing video skipping, freezing or delays

Here are a few things to do to see how to improve your connection with us:

Close other programs you have running on your computer.

Make sure there are no one else using your internet connection to download files or watch videos.  If you are using a wireless connection make sure it has been set up with a password so other people near you can’t use your connection without your permission.

Close all additional tabs and multiple browsers you may have running.

Reboot your computer and try again using only one browser and one tab open.

Click on refresh on the page you are viewing and give it 20 seconds to see if it will load.

If watching after the live event you will see a white “HD” in the bottom right corner of your screen.  Single click on the letters HD and a menu will open. Most of the time it will be set to “auto” but you can lower the number one step at a time to see what works best for your computer.

You might have better luck trying to use another web browser such as, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera

If your video comes with downloads, you can try and download these to your computer and view from your computers rather than from the internet. This eliminates our site from the equation all together.

If you still have problems and downloads are not offered please contact our Help Desk team by clicking on “? Support” at the bottom of your screen

Check your internet speed at:


Click on “Begin Test”  and match your speeds

Download speed should be a minimum of : 15 Mbps for watching Live events and 10Mbps for watching recordings after the event.

Upload speeds are irrelevant for watching videos.

Contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) if you need to upgrade or if you are paying for services you are not getting.  They can diagnose your individual problem.


How do I download and event?

Only specified event come with downloads/  LightMaster will have them always.
You will know if your event has downloads as they will be listed in a box above the player of your event video.

If your event comes with Downloads:

Look for the Download box or just the words, “Download MP4 Video Here” or “Download the MP3 Audio Here.”

Click on this text to download it to your computer.  Some browsers require that you Right Click on the link and then click “Save As” or “Save Link As” to download it to your computer. Be sure to pay attention to where you saved the file.  Once the download is complete double click on the file to play it from your computer. 


Live Broadcast Problems

I’m sorry that you are having trouble with the video system. First, we re on a cloud distribution system that tends to learn from itself so the problem may go away as mysteriously as it came.

There are also two important things you can do to make sure you get the best reception.

Make sure that no one else is using your internet connection, and make sure that you don’t have unnecessary tabs open on your computer.  Refresh your page

Go to the player and move your mouse over the right hand corner of the player. You will see the letters HD.  Click on the letters and lower the numbers listed there.


LIVE EVENT Broadcast Problems Reboot

We are sorry to hear you had problems with the internet and our event today.

We have had some other people with problems in viewing events.  The majority of the time it turns out to be on their end either internet or their computer.

Restart your computer and browser and login again.

This resets the internet connection and the computer for anything running in the background that may have been slowing down the broadcast.
