How to optimize my VLC player for watching IPTV?

VLC media player

You can modify the setting of the VLC media player, which can finally help you watch IPTV with less buffering by increasing the cache size. In the following, some of these tips are mentioned.

How to optimize VLC for watching IPTV?

Step 1: Open the VLC media player, select “Tools“, and click “Preference“.



Step 2: Next, click “All” under the “Show Settings” option at the bottom of the window. Click “Input / Codecs” in the left sidebar.




Step 3: If the file that is buffering is playing from a local hard drive, look for the “File Caching (ms)” option under “Advanced” on the right side. The caching value here is estimated in milliseconds, so setting the value to 1000 will buffer for 1 second. The issue with setting this option too large is that if you want to skip to a new point in the file manually, there will be a larger lag while the content is buffered again.

If the file you are trying to play is located on a network share, you can change the caching value for “Network Caching (ms)”.
