Improving Netflix Streaming on Computers
Streaming speed issues that occur on computers can be attributed to the applications/tasks running in the background, window size, screen resolution, or problems with the web browser. Problems can be caused by the size of your browser window, especially if the display of your monitor is larger than 20-inches. Similarly, if you have a dual-monitor setup on your computer, it may also cause problems. An effective solution is to try different browser window sizes and see which particular one is giving you the best results.
Apps or tasks running in the background can also slow down your Netflix streaming speed. So, make sure you close all unnecessary programs, memory-hogging services and even other tabs on your browser. Additionally, OS X and Windows users can face problems streaming Netflix videos from their preferred browser. Therefore, you need to install software (we recommend Microsoft Silverlight) so that the video is streamed to your browser without any disruption. Nevertheless, make sure you have the right version.
