The best way to troubleshoot from the Subject's side is to re-establish connection to the Session. Follow the steps below to help troubleshoot any issues you, the Subject, might be having within the Session, including upload issues or other features behaving unexpectedly.
Check Your Internet Connection
If your device shows a connection of less than 3Mb/s, verify that you are connected to Wi-Fi and not LTE data. Typically Wi-Fi is faster but you can film on LTE data!
To switch from Wi-Fi to LTE data or vice versa, go into the phone’s Settings and click Wi-Fi. From there, you can switch network connections or turn off Wi-Fi to use data.
Exit the Session Room
Click on the Leave Session button in the bottom right corner of the iOS device’s screen. Click Yes to exit the Session Room.
Log out of the Session
After you exit the Session, you’ll be in the Session’s waiting area.
Click the 3 lines at the top left corner to access the Session menu and select Logout.
Click Yes to logout of the Session entirely.
You will then be brought back to the main page of the OpenReel Capture 2.0 app, where you can enter a Session ID. You can re-enter the Session, establishing a new connection. If this doesn’t solve the issue, continue with the following steps.
Force Quit OpenReel Capture 2.0
Force-quit the app to clear the app’s cache and establish a brand new connection to the platform. Here is a great tutorial from Apple about Force Quitting your apps.
Sign Back Into The Session
Once all of those steps are done you can sign back into the Session using the Session ID that the Director originally provided to you. Once you have signed back into the Session, you will be able to upload any video files that have not yet been uploaded, and use any features that may not have been previously functioning as expected.
