Viewer problem: videos/streams never load
For the past few days, every time I try to watch anything at all on, the video will never load. All I see is a still image with the loading animation in the center. If what I was trying to watch was live, I would occasionally see the still image change to something else, but the stream still won't load. I do not hear any audio either.

Yes, I have tried refreshing, closing other browser windows, and ending any other programs that may be using up bandwidth. I have tried using three different browsers (Opera, Chrome, and IE) none of them work. I have Windows 7 and a broadband internet connection, I do not have any problem watching streams on other websites, and I have never had similar problems with livestream before. I just made sure that my flash player and java were up to date as well.

Understandably, this is very frustrating for me and I would like some help solving this issue.

I'm having the same issues. Only some videos load most never do though. Like the kenmore live studios stream is working fine but others just sit there and load forever even though I know they're live. It doesn't make sense.

Refreshing, restarting, updating flash and all that, hasn't made a difference, and I'm not using a blocker so that's not it either. I'm lost. I thought it was on Livestream's end at first, and that it'd be fixed, but it has been quite awhile now and I'm still getting this same problem. Some streams just refuse to load.

I have also noticed this problem with some viewers and fellow streamers.

I believe the problem is with loading the advertisements that appear before the stream, it seems the advertisement video doesn't load causing the Livestream player to not continue onto the stream.

If using a add-on that blocks the advertisements the Livestream player loads the stream normally.

Although it does appear the advertisement not loading is the cause of the Livestream player from loading the stream, I'm not sure whats causing the advertisements not to load.

I hope this problem can be solved soon.

Happening to me as well. Seems to effect all ad-supported channels. It seems to be because the ads are failing to load for some reason on LS' end. They will rarely work when using the site but never when using embedded versions. Some users have no issues because their regions serve different or no ads, but I and several others simply can't access any channels at all unless extremely lucky. Really, really need a fix.
