What can I do about a video that constantly stops and starts, or continues to buffer?

This problem is most likely caused by your connection to the internet. You can help increase your bandwidth by closing all of your other browser windows, and making sure you are not uploading, downloading, or streaming anything else and that no one else who shares your connection is uploading, downloading, or streaming.

You can measure your bandwidth here. Listed below are some internet download speed recommendations for playing videos:

  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Ideal minimum broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
