Tips for Smoother Rugby Online Streaming
Like millions of fans the world over, do you want to watch rugby games live online? Want to get the best streaming quality? Fortunately, you can do just that without needing an expert’s help.
Disabling Hardware Acceleration
If you’re using a Flash-based web player and your streams are always pixelated, try to right click on the stream window, click settings and uncheck Enable hardware acceleration. This is not an assurance that the issue will be fixed – after all, it may be your unstable Internet connection – but hardware acceleration has been proven to cause pixelation according to most live video streaming websites.
Flushing DNS Settings
You may have encountered the infamous Error #2032 while streaming rugby or any other live event or show. This means your connection to the streaming server has been cut for more than ten seconds, and the provider has shut your stream off. Usually, you can solve this problem just by flushing your DNS cache. Open up your Windows command prompt (click the Start button, type command prompt and then hit Enter) and type ipconfig/flushdns to reset your DNS automatically. Hopefully, this will solve your streaming problem.
Changing Streaming Resolution
If you deal with a lot of streaming hiccups, try switching to a different -not necessarily lower- resolution video stream. You can get a stuttering feed at 360p and watch it smooth out 720p. Just try different settings and see what works.
Streaming on TV
Watching streams at your desk is perfectly fine, but watching them on TV in your living room can be more comfortable and satisfying. The whole trick though depends on your setup and available equipment.
You should be fine with an HDMI-equipped laptop or desktop computer (there are TVs that also support VGA, which is usually copatible with older PCs); just connect your PC to your HDTV as your second monitor. If you use Apple equipment, a Mac or iOS device and an Apple TV can be wirelessly configured to output display on your TV, or you can simply buy an HDMI adapter to get a direct connection from your device to your TV. If your phone runs on Android and support HDMI out, the mobile app of your preferred streaming service can simply be mirrored onto the TV in that way. Otherwise, you’ll need a wireless HDMI adapter or a Roku media player.
As a rugby enthusiast, you probably think that live streaming is one of the best gifts you’ve ever received from technology. But with so many streams on so many sites, not to mention a few full-featured standalone player apps, staying on top of your streaming game can be a feat. The tips discussed above can offer some help.
