can anyone give me any tips to remove some of the pixilation issues in SD quality? I have 2 internet connections, one fast and one slow but the fast one is limited and the slow one cant do 480 "reliably" so i'm forced to watch SD quality, which doesn't bother me except for the pixilation that occurs, from what I've read online its due to the videos compression, is their anyway to help smooth it out more or fix the issue without increasing the video quality?

Are you watching on a computer, or via an app on a device?

If you are watching on a PC, you could try right-clicking on the video and select "Enable video smoothing".

Which app?

Also, have you tried a different web browser? Chrome normally uses its built in Flash, while Firefox or IE would use a separate package (and IE 10/11 on Windows 8.0/8.1 also have a built-in version).

If you are on a Mac, you might try seeing if Safari and Chrome yield different results.

For the SD stream that is pixelating, what is your playback screen size? Laptop (13-17 inch)? Desktop (19-30 inch)? Home theater (32-64 inch)? If you're streaming to a regular TV (home theater), what type of TV is it (LCD or Plasma)?

How far away are you viewing this SD stream from? For example: if you're streaming to a 24 inch LCD computer monitor, are you:

- 1-2 feet away from your monitor?
- 2-4 feet away?
- 5-7 feet away?
