Close all unnecessary programs
As well as needing the best Internet connection possible, videos and live streaming also put a strain on your computer, meaning it is advisable to close all unnecessary programs, especially those which affect the performance of your device or require a steady internet connection such as YouTube, ICQ etc. Please also take into account that these programs often automatically start when you turn on your device and run in the background. If you use Wi-Fi at home, please make sure that the Internet connection is not affected or restricted by other people using the same network.
Use an up-to-date graphics card
On your graphic card manufacturer’s homepage, you will be able to download the newest version of your graphic card and carry out all necessary updates. It is very important to ensure that all drivers are up-to-date, as this is the only way that we can guarantee that your hardware is optimally configured and can operate at the best level possible.
Only click on the stream once
If the stream does not start at once, have some patience. It may take between two to three minutes before the stream is completely loaded. Continually clicking on the stream will only slow the process further as the loading process is interrupted and everything must be loaded again.
Do not close the stream
Once the stream is playing, please do not stop it or close the window. The stream should always be playing, especially during breaks. Many people turn the streams off during these pauses resulting in many users trying to load the stream at the same time which can lead to server problems.
What to do when the video keeps stopping?
If the broadcasts continually stops or jumps then please do not attempt to close and restart the stream. This will force the stream to start the loading process completely from the beginning and may result in further delays, especially when the servers are burdened. Please keep the stream playing, and it will continue to load in the background and the quality should improve by itself.
Full screen mode
Full screen mode requires a lot of processing power and can affect the quality of the video performance even when an adequate Internet connection is available.
Restart your computer
Please restart your computer before you go to www.championshockeyleague.net and watch a live stream
