How to Watch a Digital Presentation

Watching a performance from your home

To watch digital presentations, you will need to have an internet-enabled device and you will need to be logged in to your Royal McPherson Box Office account since that is where your ticketing records are housed.

The video will be hosted on Vimeo.com so you need to be aware of what TV app platforms are supported by Vimeo. Here is the link to detailed information on Vimeo.com.

There are lots of ways to watch Vimeo videos on devices other than your computer — to start, native Vimeo apps are available for these popular app platforms and devices:
• Apple TV (4th generation and 5th generation/4K models running tvOS)
• Roku devices (standalone Roku devices as well as Roku-enabled TVs)
• Android TV devices (such as NVidia Shield TV, Sony TVs, Xiaomi Mi Box)
• Amazon Fire TV devices
• Chromecast

Over the years, several mobile and TV app platforms have come and gone, along with our apps on those platforms. To play Vimeo videos on your TV, we recommend using one of the platforms listed above. Vimeo apps on these platforms are no longer supported:

• Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation, with the Vimeo app pre-installed)
• Philips TVs
• Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players
• Sony TVs and Blu-Ray players (running the Opera TV Marketplace)
• Xbox 360 • Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows Phone

….

Some smart TV platforms provide web browsers that can access standard websites. The Vimeo website and video player are not tested in TV web browser environments and are not supported. System requirements for playing back Vimeo videos can be found here.

If you plan to watch the digital presentation on your Smart TV, here are your options:

Option A:

I have a TV with a “casting” or “wireless streaming” device attached, such as any device listed above.

Option B:

I have a TV with built-in Apple TV, Chromecast or Roku.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Apple TV and AirPlay only work with Apple devices (iPhones, MacBook laptops etc).
  • Chromecast is not compatible with Google Chrome. Please use a different browser.
  • If you do not have either Option A or B (or some other streaming device), you will be limited to watching the performance on a computer, smartphone or tablet.

Connect casting device or TV to the same Wi-Fi network as your mobile device or computer.

When you go the link with embedded digital film, you’ll see at the bottom right of this video still image a ‘small TV’ icon with either an arrow attached to the bottom of it, or a series of concentric “waves” in the corner.

When you click on this icon, your casting device should automatically be detected, and instructions to pair it with your mobile device or computer will come up on your screen.
Part of these instructions will involve connecting your casting device to a Wi-Fi network. Casting to your TV will only work if you select the same Wi-Fi network that your mobile device or computer is already connected to.

Once you have specified the casting device as the output for your video playback, the video should be redirected to your TV.


Unfortunately, due to the diversity of casting devices and TVs available, it is not possible to provide you with technical support for your individual setup, but we hope the instructions above will be helpful.
