  • Bandwith and buffering
  • #483104

    Just started so far the video has buffered more than it has played. If it stops every 30 sec how can I learn? I have a brand new MAC and gig internet this is unacceptable. If you can’t afford enough bandwith then you should just offer the DVDs not streaming.


    I did have some robust buffering going on earlier today but everything was fine a few hours later. I do understand that there are many places that traffic can slow, only one of which would be within the control of Team Tathata. I’m sure they are doing all they can to make sure the problem is not on their end.


    Hi Matthew and David,

    We are sorry to hear you are experiencing streaming issues. All of our videos on our website and within the program are hosted by Vimeo who does offer unlimited bandwidth for us. With that said, Vimeo has been experiencing some issues recently and we are working with them and our web team to get things fixed as fast as possible. Unfortunately, its a little out of our control but we wanted to let you know we are working with Vimeo to get these issues resolved.

    We appreciate your patience, we are too are a bit frustrated and are looking forward to a solution very soon!


    Thank you for your patience as we investigated the playback issues. We wanted to update you on some information that was shared with us yesterday from Vimeo, our video host provider. Vimeo shared with us that they recently identified an issue in their software that was impacting the video playback intermittently with all of their videos and customers. They said this was causing certain videos additional time to load or not load at all, which their developers were looking into and trying to get resolved ASAP. Vimeo is pretty large company with thousands of clients and users, so we anticipated them fixing the issue as fast as possible.

    We received a message from them earlier this morning saying the playback issues affecting certain videos has been resolved.

    If you are still experiencing problems please let us know!

    Thank you again for your patience! Enjoy your training!


    This is a significant negative. I have superfast internet, but need to keep changing the HD to 360p to stop the video from pausing so often and for so long. And you often cannot pause a video and come back to it later – that frequently results in collapse and a variety of false error messages. Then need to refresh the browser and find my place again with difficulty. This is slowing down my learning.

    Not sure Vimeo is the best player even if working smoothly. No scroll bar (let alone a preview) and very difficult to return to a position or to jump around and check something you watched a bit earlier. I can understand not wanting to let customers download the videos and play them efficiently at home, but even online there must be a better way. I think all my Revolution Golf video series (Jim McLean, Sean Foley, etc) are streamed on Brightcove. You can click on the progress bar to jump back and forth quickly and it doesn’t buffer or crash.


    Thank you informing us of the playback concerns some of you have been experiencing.

    We are currently looking into alternatives to ensure the quality of the videos are being met to the standards you all have expressed. We will keep you posted as we look to improve our video playback and system.
