This is way too slow!

I've been trying for over half an hour to watch a 2.32 minute video, and the others I've seen so far also played very slowly. I'm using my macbook pro, and tried both Safari and Chrome. The lessons look good, but unless this gets better I will not be able to use this. Oh yes and I'm connected to 4G wifi.

I haven't had similar issues with any of the courses. Have you tried using an entirely different internet connection, to be sure your connection isn't the problem?

I've had my cellular provider tell me I was on 4G LTE and still had my actual throughput be very slow, sometimes.

I have the same problem. Very Disappointed!

Just in case ... are you aware of the video speed control located between the rewind and caption buttons in the playback controls? Any chance you accidentally set it to something less than 1x?

Very odd, I use TeamTreeHouse on my kindle fire, linux laptop and windows computer and I have never had an issue

Just so we are clear on the issue, what do you mean by slow? Do you mean they are buffering and taking a long time to load all the way, or do you mean that the video speed while it is play is really slow?

Well to watch it, i have to let it buffer. When I say slow I mean that the loading and waiting wheel is almost continuously showing. Anyway, I'll check my 4g provider tomorrow in case thats the issue, but utube seems to be streaming ok.
