However, it still has both strengths and weaknesses, of course. One of the most common issues that people often encounter when accessing this platform might be the RTC connecting problem. But do not worry about it too much, we will give you the solutions to handle the issue right now. 

This writing will share with you some easy tips to resolve the RTC connecting error. Let's check them out!

What is the RTC connecting issue?

RTC stands for Real-Time Communication, which means that your voice and live videos will be transmitted at the same time.

To be more specific, RTC was published in 2011; this app makes people’s distance conversation become more lively with real-time audio and video as well as data transmission at a fast speed. 

When you want to connect to a Discord channel, you have to go through large servers. Therefore, you sometimes can encounter the RTC connecting error. It can be an internet-related problem; however, it can be more problematic regarding many other factors. Let's figure it out and solve the problem.

How to fix Discord?

Try to restart Discord and your Router

Once you find any problems with your RTC connection, let's try to take the first action with your router. You can try to switch your router or your Discord on and off to see the internet signal. 

The purpose is not to reset your internet connection but fix any Discord loading errors when you open this application. Believe me, your Discord RTC connecting error can be fixed with this simple action. 

Check Your Firewall

Secondly, check your antivirus firewall to see whether your Discord is being blocked and prevented incorrectly from connecting to the servers. 

Make Sure Your VPN Support Discord

Let’s check your VPN if you are using this service to make sure that VPN is not blocking your Discord. You may know that Discord only works on VPNs that have had UDP (User Datagram Protocol) already. Once yours does not have UDP, you can check the one that has to see if you can solve the problem.

Check With Your Network Admin

In case you are outside and have to use a local internet service, you can ask the admin whether they have Discord blocked. I do not think they would prevent you from connecting to the Discord server, but to make sure this case does not happen you had better ask. 

Change The Voice Region

You should change the voice region in the server setting by going to ‘Server Setting> Server Region’. This change can help prevent any annoying bugs which can cause interruption to your RTC connection.

Above are just some simple steps you can take to improve your RTC connection. You can visit our website for more information if you encounter any questions relating to Discord’s audio.
