I downloaded the movie (2.38 GB) to watch it through VLC because the streaming speed was unbelievably slow. I am okay with that but the problem is I don't want to download all of the interviews and other fun stuff I purchased (Journalism package) since I don't want to store it all. I would rather stream it but everything is too slow. This is not a problem with my internet because I can watch videos on other sites without stuttering or loading times just fine. I do not know if it is because a lot of people are on the server at once but since I paid for the package I feel I should be able to watch without too many problems. For instance I can stream movies or TV shows on sites like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc just fine. Even 6~ minute videos freeze and have issues with playback. Definitely not purchasing from VHX.tv again since whatever they use to stream is so poor.
The only solution I was given was to watch the video at a lower quality which isn't exactly a solution at all. Does video play better through a different browser because I am willing to switch if that is the issue. Currently I am using Opera. It is Chromium based though so I doubt Chrome would be any different? I can also try removing one of my extensions (I mainly have ad blockers) if that would help with speed.
