If you are not hearing anything please check that your device volume is not muted. Try viewing on another device if one is available.
Hover mouse on screen and click the volume icon in the utility bar at the bottom of the screen to see if the volume is turned up.

Will watching a service use data on my mobile device?
Yes, streaming video will consume data allowance. You should confirm details of your plan. A typical service may consume 1GB of data.
If you do not have sufficient data on your mobile plan you should consider viewing via wifi, a fixed wire device or contact your mobile provider about lifting your mobile data cap.
What speed does my internet need to be?
To view the service without disruption you will need a minimum of 512Kbps or 0.5Mbps. The system will automatically seek the highest speed available on your device to give the best viewing experience.
If the speed seems too low, click the "Settings" cog wheel in the bottom utility bar of the viewing screen and select 720p if it is available. If 720p is not presented, the speed may be restricted at the funeral home side or on your viewing device.
