Increase buffer size for HLS video playback?

Hi All,

Is there way to increment the buffer size for HLS video playback? Haven't found anything in the documentation on this regard.

Thanks

No, but you could try smaller segments, say, 6 seconds instead of 10.

Re: Increase buffer size for HLS video playback?

Is there any Roku devise that helps with slower DSL internet connections? I.e. an external buffer, or maybe some additional SIM chip.

I don't care about storing more streaming channels.... just a way to help constant reloading. I have the cleanest and fastest and newest router available service, in the geographic area. and there is only one Internet provider available.
