The quality of media streaming may depend on a few main factors:

  • the quality of your home network. The wired connection is always preferable, especially for streaming HD videos. If you use a wireless network, make sure that the signal is strong, the device is located within a reasonable distance from the router, and the Wi-Fi channel you are using is being used by as few people as possible. A high-quality router is always a good investment, especially if it’s designed for high bitrate operation;
  • the power of the computer running Elmedia Player. It concerns transcoded videos that may require considerable resources from your Mac, especially CPU, to be played smoothly;
  • the way the file has been encoded. Some top-quality video files may be 'too heavy' for your device with its limited processing power and memory. There might be stuttering in fast-moving scenes.
