Before you can stream video files in our built-in web player, they need to be converted to mp4 format. Because of the amount of data we need to process, this can take up considerable time. However, if the conversion should take more than a few seconds, our live streaming will kick in and you can watch it without any issue.
You can avoid waiting and stream, without converting, by using a VLC player. This already popular and widespread media player can be downloaded for free. Streaming should start within a few seconds depending on your internet connection speed. You can also add subtitles. Have a look at OpenSubtitles.org if you are not sure where to get them.
