Trouble Shooting Suggestions for Buffering or Audio Issue

Multiple apps running on your device can slow down the video performance and monopolize the bandwidth.

Background downloads can saturate a users internet connection. Make sure your computer isn't downloading any updates, and close any open windows with streaming services like Netflix and Youtube loaded.

If someone else on the same network is performing any of the actions listed in the previous point, then it can cause buffering. It's also worth checking your smart phone/devices to see if they're downloading any updates.

Some Internet Service Providers (e.g. Spectrum, AT&T, etc) have issues with congestion during peak video streaming hours, usually in the evenings.

Your browser stores recently visited websites (or portions of it such as images and videos) in a temporary file called the cache. If refreshing your browser didn't work then forcing the browser to clear its cache is the next step.

This helps to clear the browser cache and re-establish a connection with the streaming server.

Best video performance is attained by using the most recent version of your web browser software.

Sometimes these devices can lock-up resulting in slow or non-existent internet throughput. Simply unplug each device, wait approximately one minute then re-connect the power. Within a minute or two they should be back online again.
