Playing 1440p videos on YT

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing a lot of buffering when watching anything on YouTube in 1440p. I normally get around 800mbps down and 40ish up. I have tried qos on AUTO and never and get the same results.

This is on a desktop with Ethernet connection. I have attached a speedtest and a benchmark.

Can someone give me an idea of what settings to maybe change? Is there a beta version i can upgrade to for software that may help?

This is on the R2 btw modem is an sb8200

How powerful is your desktop? It may be the desktop itself and not internet speed. Make sure your GPU/CPU/RAM/SSD/HDD can handle 1440p. Does it lag when you play 1440p @60 FPS or 1440p 30 FPS? I have a chromebook (For example) and it can play 720p @60 FPS, 1080p @50 FPS, or 1440p @30 FPS without lagging. Anything higher than that and it starts buffering, even though my internet speed is 200/10. For more debug info, right click and then select "Stats for nerds" and it'll tell you about the connection speed and frame drops. If you have a high frame drop, it can mean your PC isn't powerful enough to handle 1440p.

@jdmefsir What firmware version are you currently running? This is on an R2, correct?

What is the exact make and model of your modem and how are there any other devices connected to it besides the R2?

From the screenshot you posted your showing 37% packet loss.. That would cause buffering.. Not to mention watching videos would likely even stall or stop.. You basically should have zero packet loss...

Id try disabling QoS fully.. Then test again to see if you have that type of packet loss.. Try to narrow down where this might be coming from.. 

Thanks!

I only show packet loss with the dumaos benchmark. I switched DNS and packet  loss is gone. Ran 10 tests since with zero issues

Connection benchmarks are now showing no packet loss after changing from isp dns to cisco open dns but still having issues with playing any video over 1080p with no buffering

I didnt grab one becuase it was showing no lost packets on any of the videos i was watching after the reboot and dns change. So im hoping it was just a dns issue or the reboot solved it for what ever reason. Ill keep it updated if anything else changes
