Playback Quality

For the best experience, we recommend checking your settings to ensure you’re watching in the highest possible quality.
To change your settings on YouTube, hover your cursor over the video window. Click on the gear icon in the lower right hand to access settings. Click “Quality” and then click the highest resolution available, (it should be 1080p – HD.)
To change your video settings in Facebook, log into your account, then click the triangle option at the far right end of your toolbar. Click “Settings & Privacy.” Then, find “Video” on the left-hand side, toward the bottom on the list of options. Click on it to see a list of options including “Video Default Quality.” On the drop-down menu, select “HD if possible.” (Please note this setting change is only possible on your computer, not in the Facebook mobile app.)

Engage with us!
