Connecting to a Video Call:
 
There are a number of reasons why you might experience difficulty connecting to a call. These steps will help to resolve some of the most common connectivity issues. 

 
1. I am trying to connect to a call, but can't...
 
When connected to a video call in the platform, the video window will have the word 'Connected' in the bottom right corner.

If you are Connected, but are unable to see the other party, please follow the prompt on screen and wait in the call until the other participant(s) join. 

If you are Connected, and it is past the time the session was meant to begin, you can try exiting the call and rejoining. You can do this by clicking on the red phone icon to close to video window, and then clicking on the Re-launch Video Session button at the bottom left of the browser window page (pictured below).

If you are trying to connect to a call, but the Secure Video Client is consistently freezing or will not open, please follow these steps. 
 
1. Force close the application (Mac users will be able to two-finger click on the icon in their dock to force quit the application. Windows users can Ctrl+Alt+Delete to end the program in their task manager). 

2. Find the Secure Video Client program in your downloaded files, or the programs on your device, and uninstall the program.  
 
3. Once the program is uninstalled from your computer, go through the steps to join your call again. You will be prompted to download and install the Secure Video Client again. 
 
4. If you are still unable to join the call after reinstalling, click on the link on the bottom of the loading screen to join the call via your browser (please note this can only be done in Chrome or Firefox).

You can also follow these General Connectivity Tips
 
- Before joining video calls, we strongly recommend closing out of all other programs on your computer, especially those which use the internet.
 
- If there are others using your Wifi connection please ensure they are not streaming content from the internet during your appointment to give you the best connection available. 
 
- Try moving closer to the router to improve your connectivity 
 
- If you find your internet connectivity is not improved by moving closer to the router, you can also try plugging in directly with an ethernet cable
