The Quality of Video is not Good?

All Courses be it Live or On Demand are provided in HD Quality. Since these courses are accessed through Internet, the Quality of Video which Individual Learners experience depends on your Internet Bandwidth.

Based on the Bandwidth quality, Youtube also adjust the bit rate accordingly to a lower rate. You can click on the settings on the Video (wheel icon on the right bottom corner) to change the Bit rate. You will typically have the Quality Settings as Auto, 144, 240, 360, 480 etc.

You can set the desired quality by choosing appropriate bit rate. The higher the Bit rate you choose, it will require higher bandwidth. In case if your Internet connection does not support higher bandwidth then you will experience Buffering after every few seconds.

If you are not technical and does not understand all this, just ensure your setting is in Auto, so that Youtube will automatically adjust according to the available bandwidth for smooth streaming.
