We present almost all of our videos in SD and 480p qualities but we also provide 720p and 1080p quality when we receive an HD source video from our publishers. We provide all of these quality levels for our Premium Members so that you may choose the quality that best fits your computer's and internet connection's capabilities. You can change the Default Video Quality from your Video Preferences page.
- SD: The lowest-quality video available that all users have access to.
- 480p: This is the same resolution that you would find on DVD, though it's highly compressed in order for most people to stream the videos while using minimal internet resources. The downside to this is that you need a fairly fast computer in order to decode the video.
- 720p: This is the second-highest quality that we offer, but it's only available for select Simulcast titles. This is also provided in a highly compressed format, but you still may need an above-average internet connection to view it (depending on where you are from) and a very fast computer to decode the video without stuttering.
- 1080p: This is the highest quality that we offer and is only recommended for people with a high-end computer and a fast internet connection. Trying to run this on a lower-end computer may cause the video playback to stutter a lot, cause your computer to slow down in general, and may even crash your web browser or Adobe Flash plugin. Please make sure your computer can handle 1080p videos before loading one.
