The livestream "Connecting..." screen occurs in the following scenarios:

Creator is offline
Creator's connection is not sending continuous video frames
Your connection cannot download the selected stream variant fast enough

We package video in two-second segments. For a 1080p 30fps livestream, each two-second segment averages 1.5MB in size.

If you see the "Connecting..." screen for every broadcast, this is likely an issue with your connection not downloading each video segment fast enough for continuous playback. Manually select a lower bitrate stream variant to fix this issue.

If you see the "Connecting..." screen periodically, it is possible the broadcaster is not sending continuous video frames due to a connection problem or other issues on the broadcaster side.
