Using Kodi with Slower Internet Connection
Hi Guys. I live in a rural area with a slower internet connection than most of you. However, I am able to watch most things you guys are able to.
Do you have constant buffering? This could help you as well.
Keep in mind not all add-ons are configurable but most of the big ones are. Let’s get started shall we?
I’m using the stock confluence skin as this is a new set up on my pc and haven’t put a new skin on yet. Also this is Jarvis so it might be slightly different than your Kodi.
I’m assuming you already have your video add-ons installed. Go to Video, then Add-ons
Highlight the add-on in this case Exodus but don’t click it. If you use a Keyboard Press C, if you use touchscreen press and hold. However, you bring up your settings options. You’ll see this:
Go to Add-on settings and select.
Select Max Quality. Adjust your Quality using the up down buttons. If you select Auto-play, make sure you select force SD playback. That is if you are selecting a quality of SD.
At 480P I can watch virtually anything. Select OK and go to the next Add-on.
Press C on Keyboard and open settings.
Click add-on settings.
Go to source management. Scroll down.
Maximum TV Show quality. Select your Quality.
Scroll down to Maximum Allowed Movie Quality and select quality. Click O.K. and go to next add-on.
Press C select Add-on settings.
Click Add-on settings.
There are quite a few Add-ons that allow you to change the quality of playback. You may have a few less or a few more sources but there should be some to choose from.
A few add-ons that allow you to change quality are Genesis (not being updated) Exodus, Salts, USTVnow Plus, Specto and many more. Just go into settings of an add-on and see.
Alternatively, a lot of add-ons are using 480P sources anyway so you can just manually select those sources. TV4Me, Teevee, Ororotv all use lower quality sources and a lot of sections in Phoenix have multiple quality sources.
The key is looking for those sources. Once you find a source that is using the quality you want use that source as often as you can. I hope this has helped and happy streaming.
