For those that are watching via live stream and have not received the joining instructions please follow the simple steps below:

STEP 1: Making sure you have the right network connection and firewall settings

Visit  Please do this on the device and the network connection you intend to view the live broadcast on. Please note the test streaming server will be live from 1st October

Also we strongly recommend you complete the tests well in advance of 11th October since there won't be any technical support available on broadcast day itself. Any issues will need be to be resolved beforehand.

We don’t recommend viewing the live video over a VPN/Thin Client (e.g. Citrix) network. Use a direct network connection instead if at all possible.

You should see a blue IFoA branded title slide and then the broadcast should change to a playing video or a vertical colour test bars. If you are on a mobile device you will just see the title slide and will have to click on the video play button. This is because videos don’t start automatically on mobile devices.

If the above appears correctly then you have the right network and firewall settings to watch the live broadcast. Move onto STEP TWO to test your network connection to see if you have enough bandwidth to view it without buffering.

If you don’t see the video or get an error message (e.g. ‘playlist.m3u8 not found’), move into the FAQs at the end of this document to help diagnose what the problem may be. It is most likely a firewall issue. Resolve them and then retake STEP 1.

STEP 2: Make sure you have the right device software and enough bandwidth to view the live broadcast without buffering


Have a look at the results. You should have at least 512Kbps (0.5 mbps) per second for a reliable live broadcast without buffering.  If the check has shown lower than this, you will experience buffering issues and you should consider an alternative connection.

For instance, if you do experience slow playback and buffering when playing videos at work, you may like to view the live broadcast from a home PC or a mobile 4G connection, as these often deliver more network bandwidth than corporate networks.

Please be aware that STEP 1, is the most important test. You may be able see and hear video within STEP 2, but this is on-demand video, not streamed, It does confirm that you have the right device software for video but not that you will be able to see streamed video on the day of the live broadcast.

STEP 3: Watching the Live Broadcast – on the day
