Video Playback buffers constantly


Apologies for the noob question but I’m new to Nextcloud and development in general.

We currently have an OwnCloud server on shared hosting which we use to send links for people to watch videos. This was set up by someone who previously worked here

I’ve just set up Nextcloud on a VPS and the video playback compared to Owncloud is terrible and buffers constantly.

Is this simply to do with the server we are hosting it on or are there any optimisations we can make to improve playback?

Many Thanks


Hi @john1

I have no good idea, but you could check the logs of the server and nextcloud for errors and also “top” for high loads during video playback. Maybe you can find some hints there.
Of course you could post your findings here and maybe someone has an idea then.
