Adjusting Screenshare Volume

To adjust live stream audio in the live trading room, hover over the screenshare image, and you'll see a volume bar appear. You can then adjust the lever on the volume bar to turn the audio up or down. Clicking the speaker phone icon will mute or unmute audio. See the images below.

Be aware that clicking on the screenshare can pause the stream. If you want to turn off this functionality, please right click the screenshare and un-check Show all controls.

What To Do If You Cannot Hear Stream Audio

If you are having trouble hearing audio, please first make sure you have:

  1. followed the guide above, and
  2. confirmed that audio is streaming per our guide here.

Next, please make sure:

  • That you can hear audio on other browser sites like YouTube (click here to test via our YouTube channel)
  • That you are using compatible browsers (full compatibility settings can be found here)
  • That the volume of your computer is on
  • That the browser window in which you are operating the stream is not muted
  • That you do not have any wired or bluetooth audio devices connected, and that your preferred speaker is the audio source
  • That you have temporarily disabled any firewall or third-party antivirus such as Norton or McAfee.

If you have gone through those steps and can still confirm that audio is still not being played through your browser, then you might have a browser or windows setting issue.
