Frequently Asked Questions

When I press "Watch", I see the movie player that plays audio instead of video:

The app uses a video format that will play audio-only if your internet connection strength is low. Video is played best when on Wi-Fi.

To prevent long buffering times, the app will switch to an audio-only stream if your internet connection quality is low per Apple's guidelines.

When I try to load a certain view, I get an "Invalid Data Error" or, "We couldn't get the information we need to show you this screen. Try again later." Other items seem to work fine:

If you see an "invalid data error", please contact the ministry/organization associated with the app content and share where you found the invalid data error. They will pass this information on to the app developers.

How do I go back to the previous screen on Android?

On Android, since it has its own dedicated back button, you should use your devices back button usually at the bottom of your device.

Why does the app quit and go to the home screen whenever I press the back button no matter where I'm at in the app?

Make sure that your thumb is fully covering the back button rather than pointing at it with your thumbnail. You may accidentally be pressing the home button instead.

Why can't I play video in portrait mode on Android?

The default video player on your device may force itself into a landscape view. If you wish to change this, look for an alternative video player in Google Play.

Make sure that your orientation is not locked to portrait mode. To change this, double press the home button slide the multi-task bar toward the right to reveal more controls on the left, and tap the button the far left to unlock the screen orientation lock. (On iPad, depending on your settings, you may be able to change the orientation lock with the switch next to the volume rocker.)
