Is a certain internet browser required to view games?

We recommend viewers use an updated version of Google Chrome for optimal viewing and compatibility. If your browser is older or outdated, there is a chance that it will not correctly load the website.

What kind of Internet connection do I need to view a live streaming video?

We recommend viewing from a wired connection with a download bandwidth of at least 5Mbps. However, the stream may require higher speeds if the stream is being encoded at a higher bitrate. To test your speed, go to SpeedTest.net. Bandwidth fluctuates constantly (especially on WiFi and mobile internet), so running three (3) tests is recommended. As a general rule, your download bandwidth must be greater than the bitrate of the stream you are trying to view.
