    Minix u9-h

    These videos don't play properly. Stop, start, stop in windowed size. Complete failure in fullscreen mode.

    Can anyone get them to play? The files aren't available anywhere else except this website.

    They play fine on my android phone oneplus 3t and my wife's iPhone. Why not on the Minix?

    Which browser?

    I tried using Chrome in fullscreen and it plays just fine except for occasionally a slight pause/buffering.
    I adjusted the resolution from Auto and it plays without buffering. Ironically it says, "Having issues? Switch to Auto for smoother streaming."

    I tried chrome, Brave and dolphin browsers. All wouldn't go full screen or play without stopping. I had resolution on auto. Thought it may be a fibre broadband speed issue but after trying on phone it plays fine on same WiFi network.

    Tried on my phone in Chrome on Auto and also adjusted the resolution but it just whirligigs and never plays! :eek:

    U9 is connected Ethernet and the phone is WiFi.

    For smooth video play in full screen mode use Firefox. Way better than Chrome.

    That's much better. Still keep getting buffering but maybe that isn't minix's fault. Firefox is allowing fullscreen at least. But the buffering is doing my nut in. Why don't they just let me download the file if they are giving away the series anyway.

    You can download them if you use a PC, Firefox and Video Download Helper. ;)

    Could be your network or possibly your ISP throttling you.

    They're playing fine on their phones which I guess are connected to their LAN.
