Firestick with Kodi laggy

Deal?Where? 632 64 November 7, 2015 at 03:37 PM
Kodi 15.2 installed with a few add-one but when I watch movies it keeps buffering. Is it my download speed, the limited amount of storage on the stick, or lack of direct Ethernet connection??
Fwiw I get 3.4mbps download on speedtest.com and my stick is 5ft from the router.

I'm considering buying the firetv and having that wired via Ethernet because I think it might help with the lag.
What do you think?? LOVE the Kodi but the buffering is pissing my wife off and she doesn't like it at allFrown
Thank you for your help!

man, buy minix Neo x8-h, which is the best iptv as it has the hieghst specification if you are looking for watching movies, it is about $125-160, u can get cheaper but be sure has amanaloge processer which the best for movie streaming. yes, you need more net speed, 3.5 is very low. and check other links of the movie in the add on as some of the link is sllow due to sllow server

Yeah I've noticed that. Some links are faster than others. I Love it but it's just too laggy for me. It's mainly my download speed I thinkFrown
