I’m having streaming issues and/or problems with video playback. How can I fix this?
Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, it’s possible that you may be receiving a stream that is either too high or too low for optimal video playback. All of our videos are encoded in multiple bitrates, and you can choose which stream works best for you. Simply right-click anywhere on the video playback window and a menu dialog window will appear. In that window, there will be a variety of bitrates available for you to choose from. Select either a higher or lower bitrate stream and resume playback. We recommend trying a few different bitrates to ensure optimum playback quality. If the problem persists, please contact us.
