A Quick Overlook of Teams – Your Cheatsheet
Tips for a Smoother than Ever Rugby Online Streaming Experience
Are you one of the millions of rugby fans who like watch your games live online? Want better streaming quality? There are ways to do that without calling for expert 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. On your Windows command prompt, type ipconfig/flushdns and this will automatically reset your DNS resolver cache. Hopefully, your streaming problem will be solved.
Changing Streaming Resolution
If you encounter a lot of hiccups while streaming, try switching to another resolution video stream but not necessarily lower though. A feed that stutters at 360p can be completely smooth at 720p. Try various settings and pick the best.
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.
If your laptop or desktop is HDMI-equipped, you should be fine (VGA, which works for older PCs, is supported by some TVs); just have your PC’s display output to your HDTV as if it was your second monitor. If most of your equipment is Apple, a Mac or iOS device and an Apple TV can be wirelessly setup to have the display show up on your TV, or just get an HDMI adapter to connect your device and your TV directly. If you have an Android phone that supports HDMI out, you can simply mirror the mobile app of your chosen streaming service onto the TV like that. Otherwise, it boils down to getting 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 because of the numerous streams on numerous sites plus a few full-featured standalone apps, staying on top of your streaming game can be a pain. The tips discussed above can offer some help.
