Is my internet connection fast enough for Fanseat?
• To guarantee the smoothest streaming experience possible we recommend 5 Mbps and above.
• To check your connection speed, please go to www.speedtest.net and run a speedtest. To watch reliably in the lowest quality you should get a minimum test result of 5 Mbps for download. To watch reliably in HD, you should have a minimum test result of 8-10 Mbps. Do notice that fluctuations in your internet connection speed may vary greatly based on e.g. the type of the connection, your location, time of the day and other software and browser windows running simultaneously on your device.
How can I optimize my PC for streaming?
• Make sure your Chrome is up to date. Since the player automatically adjusts the stream quality if the bandwidth increases/decreases during playback, we suggest you keep running other applications and browser tabs/windows to a minimum when streaming. Alternatively, if the streams is lagging, pauses frequently or gets cloggy, try switching the stream quality manually from the player's settings. A good idea is to restart the computer before hand to free CPU and memory resources. Laptop users are recommended to connect their computer with a power adapter instead of using the laptop on battery and to use an Ethernet cable connection instead of WLAN for better performance.
