1. Unstable internet connection at the venue where the camera systems are installed

If you are experiencing buffering/spinning wheel it is likely due to slow network speeds at the venue where the camera systems are permanently installed. The sports organizations broadcast the game(s) are responsible for ensuring there is a stable network connection to the Spiideo camera systems at every venue.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your games will NOT be lost. They will be viewable once the video fully uploads to our servers. We understand this is not ideal as you wanted to watch the live event; but you can also re-watch the recording once it's fully uploaded as many times as you'd like.
