FAQs & Troubleshooting
Q: A PNM cannot upload their video. What should they do?
A: If a PNM is having an issue uploading their video, they should check the following items:
1.) Are they using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox?
2.) Are they connected to a stable internet connection?
3.) Is their video 3 minutes or less? Longer videos = larger file sizes, which may cause the system to timeout.
If all of those items have been checked and the PNM still cannot upload a video, please utilize the Live Chat feature on Me in 3 or send an email to email@example.com.
Q: A PNM video is playing back as audio only (no video). How can this be fixed?
A: Some iPhone settings cause a video compatibility error. This is easily fixed but will require the PNM to re-upload their video. There are 2 things a PNM can do:
1.) Open the existing video in an editor like iMovie. Save the video as a new file in either .mp4 format or .mov format. The PNM will then need to re-upload their video to Me in 3 by logging in, clicking on the My Profile section, and selecting the Edit Video button underneath the Profile video. We’ve created step-by-step instructions here: https://www.mein3.com/iphone-compatibility-fix/
2.) Re-record your video after changing iPhone settings. In “Settings” on your iPhone, click “Camera”. There is a setting called Camera Capture. The options are High Efficiency & Most Compatible. It defaults to High Efficiency. You would need to change it to “Most Compatible”. Then record your video and upload it to Me in 3.
Q: A PNM or Chapter Member is unable to login/receives an “Account Not Found” error.
A: Please ensure that the Chapter Member is logging in at the correct custom link (example: myuniversity.mein3.com). Logging in from www.mein3.com will not work. If they are logging in at the correct link and still receiving and “Account Not Found” message, it is highly likely a password issue and they should reset their password using the “Forgot Password” link on the sign in page. If they continue to have login issues, email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional assistance.
