Video Feed Quality
The quality of the video feed is mostly dependant on your computer's connection to the Internet.

Please ensure you have an active broadband connection (slower dial-up connections are not sufficient to provide video streaming).

There are 4 settings on the Bet & Watch interface which should be tried to determine which provides you with the best video stream.

Click on each setting option to identify which setting results in the best video broadcast. (Give each setting at least 2 minutes to view the quality).

The settings use different protocols, network routes or data packet sizes to try to deliver the best quality video to your PC/Media Player.
