When you attempt to open the Live Streamer Desktop Application and experience an error, it may be due to a connection issue. This error can be fixed by changing a setting in Java.
For example, the "MalformedURLException" error results due to a misconfiguration of a connection setting:
To change your Java settings and fix this error:
Mac users: Go to system preference and select "Java".
Windows users: Go to "Control Panel" and search "Java" in the search box located on top right corner.
Select 'Network Settings' under the 'General' tab.
Ensure that "Direct connection" is selected instead of "Use browser settings".
Press 'OK'. Next, try to open the Live Streamer Desktop Application from the desktop. The streamer should now successfully connect and open.
