Listen to the audio portion of the event

After you log in to the Live Meeting console, you will hear the event's streaming audio. If you do not have Windows Media Player (WMP) 9 or later installed, you will be prompted to install it.

If you have WMP 9 or later installed but still do not hear the audio, confirm that your PC speakers are turned on and that the volume is turned up. If you continue to experience difficulties, once you are logged into the session, please turn your seat color to red via the drop down menu in the Seating Chart. Expect a 1:1 chat for assistance.

Web-based console

In some situations, you may not be able to use the Live Meeting console software. You will then be provided with a link to attend the event by using the Web-based console. You will be provided with this link if:

You cancel the installation of the Live Meeting console software.

You are unable to install the Live Meeting console software.

You are using a Macintosh computer.

Note: Although using the Web-based console is similar to using the Windows-based Live Meeting console software, the functionality and layout of the Web Based console are different.
