There is nothing like experiencing a live IIN conference and feeling the energy of your fellow students. However, we understand that not everyone will be able to make it and the live stream option is a great alternative.
Yes, and no. You will be able to pause the live stream. However, when you re-start, it will revert back to the live broadcast and you will miss anything that occurred while paused.
The first thing to try is refreshing (or “reloading”) the web page. If refreshing doesn’t fix the issue, try closing your web browser completely and re-opening it from scratch. You can also try using a different web browser. We don’t have any suggestions as to which browser will work better, but for example, you might have a more updated version of Firefox than your version of Internet Explorer. In this case, Firefox might work better for you. You also want to make sure your Internet connection is strong for the best results.
Please make sure your computer is playing audio properly. Try playing a YouTube clip, a song on iTunes or something else that you know has audio you’ve heard before. If your test plays audio correctly but you still can’t hear the live stream, please try refreshing (or “reloading”) the web page, and the rest of the steps from the previous answer.
If you can’t hear the audio playing during your test, there must be something wrong with your audio set up. Please check your volume level and make sure the volume is not muted or turned down too low to hear. Please make sure you have speakers plugged in. Or if there are headphones plugged in, please make sure you are listening to them. If you can’t determine why the audio is not playing, try restating your computer completely.
Then, only open YouTube, iTunes, or a file that you know has audio you’ve heard before. Your audio should play properly as long as you have nothing else open. Once you have a successful audio test, try playing the live stream again. Now the audio should play correctly.
Yes. The presentation slides will be posted on the IIN Live: May 2013 Conference OEF on Monday, May 6, 2013.
No. This is a live event and videos will not be uploaded to the Conference OEF. We encourage you to block off the weekend and join us live!
We encourage you to share quotes from your favorite speakers and interact with each other on the IIN Live Events Facebook page, the Twitter account @NutritionSchool, and Instagram page using #IINLive.
Please note that no photography or filming (even from smart phones or portable devices) is allowed in the venue, so if you share pictures or videos, it can only be images from outside of the venue. Any photos or filming inside the venue will be from IIN staff only.
