Why do the course videos appear to be choppy or buffering and not playing smoothly?
Our HD videos are automatically set to play at the highest speed/resolution possible. If your internet connection is slower, the videos may be outpacing your download speed. To manually adjust, hover your mouse over the OTC logo in the lower right corner of the video display, until the icons appear. Click the “HD” icon and select a lower resolution level (720p, 540p or 360p). This will reduce the size of the video file to better match slower connection speed.
