Is video playback choppy?
If your video playback isn’t smooth, here are somethings you can try:
-Pause the video and let the video buffer before you view it.
-Close other browser tabs and windows.
-Make sure you have either the latest version of Flash running on your computer, or use a browser with native HTML5 support.
-Switch to another browser to see if that helps.
Do I need a fast Internet connection for HD videos?
Most residential cable and DSL connections should be more than adequate. If HD feels slow to load, try turning off the HD icon on the lower right of the video screen and close any background applications that could be using up bandwidth. You can also push the play button in the player and then pause to let the video buffer before viewing.
What is video buffering, and how do I do it?
Buffering is a way of preloading the videos you watch so that fluctuations in your Internet connection don’t cause choppy playback.When you play a video, a light gray bar will advance in front of the playhead, showing you how much of your video has been buffered. Your playback should be smooth as long as you’re viewing your video within the light gray buffer region. If you’re experiencing choppy playback, pause the video, allow the video to buffer for a few moments, then try playing your video again!
