Here are 9 ways to troubleshoot slow streaming video problems. Try them in the given order – beginning with the simpler to serious troubleshooting methods.
1. Switch to Standard Definition (SD) video:
Our videos are offered in High Definition (HD) to the Standard Definition (SD) video option. If you are having issues with streaming the videos, we would recommend switching to the SD version for better playback results. These two tabs are located at the top of the video frame.
2. Try again:
There are several factors in any given moment that could be temporary impeding your internet speed or connection. These factors could lie anywhere in between your computer and our servers, and the situation may correct itself on its own. If you haven’t already done so, please try again at a later time.
3. Pick the right browser:
Choose Another Browser. Oftentimes various internet browser extensions, security settings or corrupt cookies may cause streaming/playback issues. Rather than going through all of these settings, extensions and folders – we suggest trying another web browser. For example if you were experiencing playback issues with Microsoft Edge (Explorer) or Apple Safari – try Chrome or Firefox – or vice versa.
4. Test internet connection:
Poor internet connection is the most common reason for slow streaming or buffering problem when trying to play high quality videos online. Our online course requires internet streaming (Download) speeds of at least 3 mbps, and ideally a minimum of 5 mbps. Internet speed could be the reason why the videos are continuously buffering. To check if your internet meets the minimum requirement test your connection speed here.
If your internet connection speed is less than 3 mbps, this may be contributing to the videos ability to load or play without interruption. We recommend reaching out to your internet provider to see if you can increase your speed.
5. Use ethernet instead of WIFI:
Instead of Wi-Fi, connect to the Internet using Ethernet cable. This will improve internet speed and also make it consistent. Thus, you can have smooth network for streaming video.
6. Remove temp files & cookies:
Cookies and temp files slow your system impacting the browser ability to load videos seamlessly. Go to your browser’s settings and remove the temporary Internet files and cookies. Instructions on how to clear cookies and browser history can be found here.
7. Close all applications on the system:
Many times slow streaming video problems are caused due to excess of programs running in the background. When you want to access any web-based video, shutdown all applications, unnecessary windows.
8. Update your device
Check to see if the device you are using to access the online course (laptop, tablet or phone) are updated. Often times this can interrupt the overall performance of the computer.
9. Turn off Firewall or any antivirus temporarily
Firewalls in your computer network or antivirus in the system may prevent streaming of videos. Turn them off for some time till you access the website and watch the video. Make sure you turn them on after watching the videos.
