Fixing poor video quality

Emanuel Synagogue has done all that is possible to ensure the highest video quality stream for our services. Jerky video playback or slow buffering can ruin the enjoyment of services. But you don’t have to put up with video streaming problems – here are some solutions to try.

1. Is your internet slow?

One of the main reasons for video streaming problems is slow internet. We recommend testing your internet connection speed using this free speed checker tool. You need a minimum download speed of 3 Megabits per second to watch a single video stream in clear, standard definition. The best Internet speed for HD streaming is 5Mbps. If you’re not getting the speeds you should be, there are some fixes you can attempt.

2. Who else is online?

Video streaming can suffer if you have a lot of people on your home connection all using the internet at once. If you’re trying to watch services on your TV screen while someone in your house is busily downloading files and your kids are playing online games on their tablets, some slowdown is inevitable.

3. Swap browsers

If you’re watching in a web browser and encountering problems, then it can help to swap browsers. For instance, if you’re finding that playback is jerky within Internet Explorer, try using Chrome or Firefox to see if this improves things.

Keep your browser up to date

Make sure your browser is up-to-date, too – head to the settings menu and check for any updates, then install them and restart your browser.

Watch out for extensions

Browser extensions can create slowdown on web pages, including for video streaming. For instance, if you use an ad blocking extension, try disabling it then reloading your browser to see if this makes your video streaming improves.

4. Let your video buffer

For a simple fix, pause your video playback and let the buffering make some progress before you click ‘play’ again. That is, press pause and watch to check that the grey line keeps moving. When it’s made some progress, press play again to see if this improves the playback.

5. Check for viruses

A virus on your computer can cause serious slowdown, especially if it’s sending information to the internet, or using your computer as a base to spread itself further. Jerky video could be a sign of a virus infection.

Conduct a thorough scan of your computer using antivirus software to make sure there’s nothing creating issues on your device.
