Streaming & Casting
Video Volume

  • On desktop, simply click the video to unmute it.
  • On mobile, enter full-screen mode first. Then click the unmute button on your device.
Music Volume & Playback
  • We sure do like our music loud! Use these steps to turn the music volume down:
    • Click the “cloud” icon on the mini-player.
    • On desktop, it will take you to mixcloud.com. On mobile, it will prompt you to download the app.
      • If you download the app, search “TheBarreCode” for our page. You can follow it to have access to all of our class playlists in advance!
      • Adjust the volume on mixcloud.com with the vertical slider.
    • If listening to music in the app, use your device’s volume controls on the side to change the volume.
    • We recommend letting the music stream for a few minutes before class starts. Before the start of class, rewind the playlist to the beginning. Press play when your instructor tells you to.

  • Before joining chat,  you will have the option to log in with Facebook, Vimeo, or as a guest. Choose the option that works for you.
  • If you don’t have Facebook or Vimeo, join chat. Enter your name & start chatting!
  • You can choose as to whether you enter the chat or not. 
  • Note, if you’re watching your stream by casting to a TV or in fullscreen mode on your device, you won’t see the chat.
  • If you have a limited membership or a credit package, do your best to cancel before your studio’s cancellation window so that you can get your credit back to use for another class. 
  • Due to increased streaming demand caused by COVID-19 & various government stay-at-home mandates, some viewers may experience limited bandwidth and poor connectivity. 
  • For these same reasons, our instructors may experience connectivity issues from time to time that cannot be fully troubleshot or avoided in advance. It is important for our platform to showcase instructors from across the country; however, it does make it difficult for us to control consistent bandwidth from class to class. We do rigorous testing before going live to ensure the best stream possible, but some technical difficulties are unforeseen and cannot be fixed. In the instance that your LIVE! class is cancelled due to connectivity issues, your local studio will be in contact with you to ensure you get booked for another class.
  • When participating in our LIVE! Classes, LIVE! Chat, or Members-Only Facebook group, please remember to be kind. The Barre Code was created as a way for local female entrepreneurs to foster a community where women can support & encourage one another. Any behavior that is considered a violation of our community guidelines could result in removal from LIVE! chat or our members-only Facebook group.
