Internet Connection Requirements (playback)
We require minimum stable speeds of 1 Mbps or faster in order to view our lowest quality, SD 360p. Since bandwidth tends to fluctuate for a number of unforeseen variables, we always recommend you use a dedicated Internet line of 5 Mbps or faster to stream high quality videos on the Internet. For optimal performance, a hardwired connection via Ethernet is best, but if you prefer to use WiFi, be sure that your router is configured correctly and that your network is not being shared with other devices (this can limit the starting speeds you pay your ISP for).
Similar to uploaded videos, Live streaming is supported on any setup that supports H.264 videos, HTML5, and Media Source (specifically required for our adaptive streaming system). Please see our supported systems for playback above, with the following exceptions:
- Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 and earlier is not supported.
- The Samsung Internet browser (all versions) is also not supported. We recommend installing Chrome instead.
