In simple terms, it means three things:
In order to provide the best user experience for our customers we need to always be looking ahead and sometimes that means we have to say "No" when asked if a certain device can be used for our products. Customers can expect that certain devices and software will not be supported or will reach end of support. Because these devices and software are unable to utilize our products, we are unable to provide technical support if you experience technical issues. Future releases will not be tested to ensure that new features work on older devices and software.
We recommend switching to a supported device and/or software in order to view our webinars if you are experiencing technical issues.
Starting in January of 2020, Microsoft will be discontinuing their technical support for Windows 7 and recommend that customers upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10. In order to better be able to assist you when technical issues arise we will also be discontinuing support for Windows 7 starting January 1st, 2020. On January 1st, if you experience a technical issue regarding your webinar or self-study webcast, we will no longer be able to offer assistance. Customers may still be able to access webinars and self-study webcasts using Windows 7 at their own risk. Surgent will not be held liable for any security risks or implications.
Customers are advised to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 in order to continue receiving critical security updates from Microsoft. If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch with your IT specialist to make a plan to upgrade. Please also take a look at Microsoft FAQ page regarding the ending of support for Windows 7.

Here are some options that should help you reconnect to the webinar audio:
Here are some options that should help you improve the webinar video feed:
First, confirm that the video feed is supposed to be visible to attendees. Some webinars are audio only!
Next, check your internet connection. The webinar platform is integrated with technology that analyzes your internet connection and overall strength of your connection to the webinar. For users with low bandwidth, the video will automatically be disabled, and only audio and the slides will display on the screen. For those with limited bandwidth, but strong enough to stream video, the video quality will automatically decrease to a lower resolution and bitrate. Test your speed at www.speedtest.net.
Finally, try clearing your browser cache and cookies, then close and re-open the browser. This will help clear out unnecessary data being stored within the browser, which could be slowing your computer down and interrupting your stream.
