How do I upload or change my profile picture?2020-12-02T09:26:49+00:00

To upload a profile picture of yourself go to the COMMNITY page and click on your profile name.

This will take you to your PROFILE PAGE. At the top of YOUR PROFILE page there is a circle with a blank grey profile image in it. Click on this image and it will open a dialogue box where you can UPLOAD your photo.

If you already have a photo and want to change it click DELETE and then UPLOAD a new one.

TIP: The easiest way to get a photo of yourself is to take a ‘selfie’ with your phone or tablet

Why can’t I play videos on Linux / Ubuntu?2017-01-20T16:11:19+00:00

In order to play our videos on Ubuntu (and some other Linux operating systems), you will need the following packages:



If you’re using a Linux OS other than Ubuntu and this doesn’t do the trick, we recommend reaching out to the OS community for assistance.

Why does my video start and stop (buffer) during playback?2017-01-20T16:12:12+00:00

If you’re experiencing excessive buffering during playback, it’s probably because your Internet connection cannot support continuous playback of the selected video quality. Switch to “Auto” in the quality menu (the icon at the bottom of the video). This will allow the player to select the best quality video file to stream. If “Auto” is not available, switch to one of the lower quality options.

You may also want to try one of the following:

  • Close extra browser tabs or other applications that may be using up your bandwidth.
  • Make sure you’re using the latest version of your browser.

What does “Auto” mean in the quality menu?

When you have “Auto” selected in the quality menu, our player will intelligently select the best quality for your particular network connection. This means you’ll avoid buffering delays and enjoy an uninterrupted viewing experience.
