I've always had problems with this using a PC, the best I can stream at is 480, sometimes 720 but my Roku box is flawless and they run off the same network, though I'm pretty sure the Roku box switches between 720 and 480 or SD. For me I'm pretty sure it is the network, it's only an 8MB/s and the ISP is pretty popular & overloaded.

This at least gives you some help as to where the bottleneck might be:

Other than making sure flash, internet browser and graphics/wireless/router drivers are up to date there's not a lot you can do!

Some people have had luck using OpenDNS or Google's Public DNS, but there is no guarantee this will improve performance in your case.

The PC and apps run over different Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), so differing performance between the two viewing methods isn't entirely uncommon.

Sometimes this can also be due to your internet connection. If you are using wireless, especially in an apartment complex like I was, you can easily get a lot of interference that makes a lot of the information being sent to you lost. If you can, I'd try using an ethernet cable first to see if that fixes the problem. If it does, you might want to look into changing some router settings, or switching to a 5G connection rather than a 2.4G.
