My video isn't playing smoothly. What can I do?

Video playback depends on several factors. To improve your playback experience, make sure you have a fast, stable internet connection. We recommend using the most recent version of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. You may experience playback issues when using an out of date browser or any version of Internet Explorer. 

You are also able to adjust the quality of the video by changing the resolution.

If you are using a VPN, this may block the stream for Virtual Screenings. Try disabling your VPN and refreshing the page.

Are there any other troubleshooting tips to help playback? 

1. Check your internet connection speed. You can check your overall internet speed here: If you do not have enough speed, you may need to increase your package with your internet service provider.

  • 18–25 Mbps: Ultra HD video (4K, HDR)

  • 10–18 Mbps: HD video

  • 1–10 Mbps: SD video

2. Are you on a Wi-Fi network that is shared with other devices and users? You may run into buffering issues if you don’t have enough bandwidth for everyone’s devices to be on the Wi-Fi network. If you are on a public network, bandwidth may be an issue. Please try again when you are on your home or office network.

3. Are you simultaneously streaming other videos or music? Are you downloading or uploading large files? These concurrent activities can contribute to latency issues. Please try closing other streaming services and wait for large downloads or uploads to complete and try again.

4. If you're on your home Wi-Fi network, and steps 1-3 are not an issue, you may need to upgrade your modem or router. Please check with your internet service provider to ensure your equipment is updated.

5. If you're using a mobile device and not connected to Wi-Fi, and you're experiencing slow loading time or buffering, you may have reached your data cap. This information is typically found under your device Settings, under Network & Internet Data usage.

6. Do you live in a remote area and is this the first time you've visited the site or tried viewing the content in question? It's possible that due to the nature of CDNs, the content has yet to be cached, causing some buffering or lag in load time. The remedy for this is to try to view the content again later, and the content should then be cached.

Can I use Chromecast or AirPlay?

Yes! Both Chromecast and Airplay are supported.

To use Chromecast, locate the Chromecast icon at the bottom right of the video window. Click the icon and select the correct device to cast to.

To use AirPlay, open the video on your Apple device and click the AirPlay icon at the bottom left corner.

Can I watch videos on my TV without using an app?

Yes. By connecting your laptop directly to your TV with an HDMI cable, you will be able to watch videos from our site on your TV.

Can I watch content on my phone or tablet?

Yes, our website is adaptable to phone and tablet browsers so you can watch our content anywhere you go.

Which browsers are supported?

While we recommend using the latest version of Google Chrome, we also support Firefox and Safari browser released within the last five years. You may experience playback issues when using an out of date browser or any version of Internet Explorer.
