      If you have published a live channel or a VOD with a paywall and you cannot play on the new tab, please:

      1. Verify that your video content has been turned ON in the back office
      2. For a live channel please double check your encoder settings

      If you still cannot play your live channel nor your VOD on the new tab, please contact our support team.
