My kids have enjoyed a few shows and I've watched one movie. Once I have a free weekend, we might just binge watch most of this site!

Now, I had some issues with playback and I contacted them via email. I got troubleshooting instructions back right away! Below I will list what they suggested for a better viewing experience.

Right-click on the video screen, and you should be given a list of Flash-related options. 
Please select "Settings..." from the list of options presented.
Along the bottom of the 'Settings' box, you'll see some tabs...
Click the 3rd tab over to the right (looks like a file folder with green arrow on top) and move the slider bar to the right until higher than 100 KB (1 MB is the next option to the right)
Next, click the tab on the far left (looks like a monitor) and then uncheck the box that says "enable hardware acceleration". (if the box is unchecked already, try 'checking' the box).
