If by memory you are referring to storage I have 3.5GB available which I would assume is plenty for a live stream? Hopefully a simple re-install may be the solution.

Make sure you havn't got battery saving mode on (if on android) and you have a setting activated for it to use background data. Also check the settings for your screen to auto-lock. If it auto-locks itself after a minute, that could be your answer.

I've just been through the process to test it works.

go to https://www.mansfieldtown.net/ifollow/

choose subscribe

choose free pass

set up your account

log in using your new account details

go to the match centre on the mansfieldtown.net homepage

choose match pass

pay your £5 using either paypal or entering credit card details

return to the match centre before kick off to watch the game

If you are already an iFollow subscriber, just go to the match centre before kick off

There seems to be a lot of negativity about Ifollow on here so I thought I would add my experience with it so far.
As I have other hobbies at the weekend at certain times of the year, although I am a season ticket holder I only get to 15-18 home games a season and 2 or 3 away games so I subscribe for the match commentaries for games I cannot attend.
The switchover from last years Stagsplayer to the new Ifollow was seamless with no need to re-register and everything just continued to work.
I do find that there is a slight delay on the commentary but usually less than a minute and does this really matter ? The only reason I can think it would matter is if you were at the game and listening to the commentary.
I have listened to matches on my PC, tablet and phone and had no problems with any of them. Even when I am travelling in the car with the commentary on my phone the only problems are if my phone loses internet signal which is no fault of the Ifollow app.
Last night I watched the Blackpool match and was very impressed with the quality - clear picture, no buffering, multi cameras, replays, and commentary - what more could you want ?
My only disappointment was that I couldn't listen to Martin's commentary. I tried opening a 2nd tab for the commentary but it shut down the video so I had to close the 2nd tab.
I would say that the 'live' video was about a minute behind (bet365 told me we had scored just before we won the free kick) but again is it really an issue ?

Overall I have been very impressed so far and think it is a bargain at £4.49 a month.

Dave Wayne, I agree...I think ifollow is very good, all works well and it has good / regular content.

Can't understand why people moan about the price to be honest

I think if you sign up you can watch the games after they've been played but listen to live commo. Unless you are outside the UK then you can watch live.

I know this might have been asked before but trolling through pages for the possible answer isn’t happening, have people been able to use chromecast and mirror the iPhone screen to watch games on tv, because obviously it hasn’t got the option of airplay.

Not quite answering your question, but I have cast to the TV screen successfully and easily using the Android facility. Although I have chromecast I didn't have to use that, but I suspect that it should work just as well.

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/mirror-an-android-device-to-your-tv-using-chromecast/

The only problem is that there is a slight slowness due to the extra link and that makes any panning shots a little jerky - very irritating. So don't expect top quality.

I have no idea whether iPhones work just as well, but as they're hundreds of pounds more expensive than my devices they should be more than capable.

I think it is only the midweek games that are available on a matchday pass.
You have to be an 'overseas' subscriber to watch the saturday matches.

Victor, you need to have an account with an overseas address to watch a Saturday game. You can't just use a UK iFollow account even when you are abroad. So I suggest you create an iFollow account (free pass account) using the address where you are staying in Spain, then you should be able to buy a match pass. The reason you were able to watch Tuesday's game is because UK subscribers can watch midweek games. Only overseas subscribers can watch Saturday games.
