Possible Causes and Best Fixes for Kodi Buffering Problems
Servers are overwhelmed with users can cause buffering issues
having hundreds of thousands of viewers watching a free PPV event or popular NFL game is probably the most common problem Fire Stick users will encounter when there device starts to buffer. Think of this as like your home WI FI connection where you have a certain speed at which internet data can be transferred to your KODI device, Fire Stick users may find the servers that host any online Add ON’s streams have to abide by similar connection standards as well as the servers get overloaded buffering may happen . If you’re trying to stream a NFL game from a ADD ON’s server that has 30,000 other viewers also trying to access the same event on it then the speed that stream can reach your Jail Broken device will be much slower and thus start to buffer than if just 500 watchers of this event were using that ADD ON’s server. Remember many ADD ON’s will have multiple games and sporting events hosted on the same server as the game your trying to stream, just because you have to understand that the amount of people watching the stream will affect the streams quality and buffer speeds.
