Help with Online Concert Thing

Here is where we put helpful hints and tips for using the Online Streaming Concert Thing!
The first important helpful hint is to log in – you have to be logged in to see the concert 🙂

For immediate support with your Online Concert Thing experience, email ben@onlineconcertthing.com or dm me on Twitter at @concert_thing 🙂


I can’t find the link for the concert I bought!

Go to My Account – click on Downloads – you should see a list of links to concerts you’ve purchased. Find the concert you want to watch, and click the big red “CLICK HERE TO WATCH” button.

I can’t get the chat to work!

Make sure you’ve chosen a username. Then enter some text. If the text doesn’t show up… Sometimes Android tablets or iPads have trouble with the chat software. I’m still figuring out why that is. Sorry about that. It will almost certainly work fine on another device. It’s cold comfort to know that it’s on the top of my issues tracker…

I purchased a tip reward but I haven’t received my reward yet!

Tip rewards are handled by the artists, not by OnlineConcertThing. Please email the artist directly to give them a gentle nudge about your tip reward. However, if you’ve nudged the artist and not received an appropriate response, please email ben@onlineconcertthing.com with your order number, and I’ll either not-so-gently nudge the artist, or issue you with an immediate refund.

I tried to Tip The Artist but I don’t think my payment went through!

This has happened only once or twice, and I believe it’s to do with the particular browser settings used. Try disabling any ad-blockers or popup blockers (OnlineConcertThing.com doesn’t use ads or popups, but there could be a problem with the third party payment processors involved). Or try choosing PayPal instead of Stripe, or vice versa, at checkout. Again, this is right up at the top of my issues tracker!

More to come soon…
