No matter which size, format or online url I use, the video eventually starts lagging. I have switched between HW+, HW and SW decorders as well but to no avail. I’m not allowed to either attach a file or a url as of now in this thread. I have even reduced the cpu cores to just two. I’m also using the codecs on this site for 1.9.18.2.
I’ve installed MX Player on my Sanyo Android TV running Oreo. The specs of the TV, video and player should be available from the logs. Please help me either force the player to keep caching the entire video until it’s done (if that’s the problem) or find a way to get the best possible configuration for decoding the videos. Thanks, I’m advance.

Hey Yohu,

Thanks for reaching out. Generally, this may happen due to inadequate bandwidth. If your bandwidth is good enough, the server might be throttling itself. Several online streaming apps make use of the cloud storages as an alternative to CDNs. If it is the case with you, it might be due to the bandwidth limitation on the cloud storage side.

We will be able to assist you if you can provide us with more information. Could you please collect a bug report from the app immediately after noticing the issue and contact us at [email protected] along with the details about the app used for streaming? It will help us to assist you better.

I agree. My bandwidth is a 50Mbps broadband line. I downloaded a 1080p video and played it via MS Player offline. It didn’t lag/stutter even once! Then I changed the online source from where I was streaming videos and voila! The stuttering and lagging were permanently fixed. Thank you for the quick response. This thread/issue is resolved/closed.
