Control interface troubleshooting

Audio cues don't work on Safari#

If you're using macOS and the Safari browser to control your show, you may find that audio cues don't work.

  • Ensure your machine isn't muted, and that audio cues are turned on - video guide here.
  • Send some test clicks and check for audio
  • If there's still no audio, it's probable that Safari is blocking sound auto-play.
note

This audio block is standard Safari behaviour designed to avoid audio adverts annoying users, but needs to be removed for OctoCue.

To do this:

  • In Safari, log in to OctoCue.
  • In the top menu bar, go to Safari - Preferences
  • In the preferences window, select the 'Websites' tab from the top bar
  • In the side bar, select Auto-Play
  • Under Currently Open Websites select Allow All Auto-Play for app.octocue.com
  • Close the preferences window and re-test the audio cues
