If the top says the event has not started, this means the host has not yet started the event. Wait a few minutes and then refresh the page. When the event is ready, the 'Join Now' button should turn green  -- do not use the 'Join by browser' option, as it will not let you use your camera!

if you're using a web browser, you may see the below screen. Ignore options 1 and 2, and instead use "run temporary application" at the bottom to ensure you'll be able to use your camera.
