Video quality was variable, as was the streaming quality. Some videos loaded quickly and and had no buffering issues, while other took a long time to load, paused mid-video to rebuffer, or stalled completely while loading. There are a lot of variables at play when it comes to streaming, though, so your experience may vary. Don't let a few slowdowns in the stream stop you from taking advantage of the wealth of experts sharing their knowledge on this channel. And it's all free!
