Webcasts provided by XE Live Broadcast use Vimeo as a hosting platform to ensure cross-compatibility between browsers and operating systems while eliminating the need for additional plugins. Any problems you face while watching a Vimeo Live event are also problems you will face watching any other Vimeo, Youtube or Web-based video.
