Couple of questions
I'm using a UBOX GEN8 and I normally just watch UBTV or UBLive on it. My UBOX is connected to my router using an ethernet cable. I have the SpeedTest app downloaded on my UBOX and everytime I run it, I get maxed out speed with about 1ms jitter and ping, which is really good. The speed is very consistent and I don't have any issues with my internet at home.
The problem is that when I'm watching UBTV, 8/10 times it will take forever to buffer the videos. Usually, it buffers at around 50KB/s. If I'm watching UBLive, usually it's pretty instant without buffering. I understand there's a built-in app called UBTunnel, which is basically a VPN. I've tried using the VPN and disabling it and it makes no difference to watching UBTV. My DNS is set to Cloudflare's 18.104.22.168 and OpenDNS.
I think the issue is on the server side, because sometimes I can watch UBTV without much buffering and I didn't have to change anything on my side. However, 80% of the time, it is really difficult to watch something due to how slow the buffering is. If I'm watching Youtube or Popcorn Time, it's fine.
Furthermore, If I go to ub1818.com on my PC, I get the same result. It's slow to buffer. What can I do here to improve the streaming speed?
