The only way to play without buffering is a pay service for $18 for 6 month get more HD links with 5.1 surround ( real-Debrid ) look it up easy to install works great!
Sir Anthony (1 month ago)
Fucking idiot no one is wanting to pay for that garbage bitch
Richie#56 Cray Ass (2 months ago)
Not true, Real Debrid will still buffer and freeze up 1080p 4k links and will always have non supported sound issues.

Love all your videos Thank you for all your help! I have a question I’m sure you can answer. I have a android box that has 3 gig of ram. I love the box, it’s very fast. My friend has a android box that only has 2 gig of ram. Is there a way to increase the ram without buying another box? Will it help to insert a SD card?
Wayman Andrews (3 months ago)
How do you get the program to download
Peter Richards (3 months ago)
If you do that everything will be lost including kodi which means if I can’t remember all your steps I will have to back to the company that sold me the box to reinstall apps.
Leo B (3 months ago)
If you don't know how to install apps then you don't mess with the box, but honestly it's super easy to do that.
Sinan Ghareb (3 months ago)
I respect your opinion, Solo Man, and appreciate you bringing the method of resetting it back to factory default to the attention of many users who don't know it exists. But this should be used as a last resort. This is the equivalent of a "Nuke it". Back in the old days of Windows 95 and 98, many "computer shops" used to say "just format the whole system". If you have a bit of an issue, format it. A game didn't work or install properly? format it. There are steps anyone can take and see the results. If those steps didn't work, then sure, go ahead and "format it".
Sinan Ghareb (3 months ago)
peter parker, oh I agree completely that it works. I have done it personally to my Minix. But it's a last resort solution. You can also install fstrim for example and have that running. Try a different ROM maybe! There are many things to do before reaching this point.
peter parker (3 months ago)
Sinan Ghareb at the end of day weather or not this is an old school fix, it worked for me. And pc's they I've owned are still the same as well. Eventually they start running horrible and when you, "nuke it" it returns back to its well operating state. If a solution works it works.

GFormica1 (1 month ago)
2.6 mbs speed is too slow...way to slow. Especially if your trying to stream higher resolution content. You also should be aware of the fact that internet speed is not rock solid and will often dip lower if at particular times of day. Get a faster connecting.

Draken X (6 months ago)
This is a good tip same goes with desktop pc. However, there is a hardware limitation with Android boxes they are good for medium and small displays but when you use 4k devices things begin to struggle heavily. This method won't save you from the lag and delay response of the device because of the hardware not able to drive that many pixels. You can probably get away with an nvidia or Amazon fire TV. They are build for it.
liza naude (6 months ago)
I tried these steps yesterday, but my box is still using max bandwidth. in beginning it had no problem was using like 1.5M, now its on 3M by just watching a movie. I dont have any extra Apps on that what the box come with. How do I reduce the bandwidth as it slows everything else around too

Justin Battrick (9 months ago)
i have been having the same issue. I put an SD Card in the box, formatted it as internal and moved data onto the card. Now I'm not having that issue anymore. So just check your storage Im assuming it was just that the box was loaded up with to much data.

Irfan Azeez no not for me
Ricardo Spears (9 months ago)
after doing that and then upgrading Kodi to the latest version, that's when I started having the problems I have now, the boxes I have barely even read my external hard drives anymore and when they do they freeze up or play for a bout 2 minutes then tell me the files are unreadable, and these were things that have been working without fault for over a year now, I'm going crazy over this now
Marcus Sills (9 months ago)
Did this and my box became slower than before
Marcus Sills (9 months ago)
Chris Cornelius on your device, download microsoft launcher from play store. Then download booster in play store. Itll speed it up. It kills unneeded background apps
Chris Cornelius (9 months ago)
Guys, any help would be helpful to help speed mine up. It buffers frequently.
Chris Cornelius (9 months ago)
Marcus Sills I'm sure you are right. I have the box, but my nephew and brother have Firesticks. They said mine is a little faster, but theirs doesn't crash as much. I do have wifi at 54 mbps, but my router is older and runs at 2.4 ghz. The have brand new routers from the cable company but they aren't running at 54 where they live. I'm not savvy, but I thought a new router could make the difference

Solo man can you please make a video on how we can get Downloader onto Android Boxes. Thank you !!
Christopher Jones (10 months ago)
I've got an older NexBox-A1device with the Android 6.0.1 version. The firmware update will download, but won't install. I have tried many times. It just keeps spinning. Even the latest possible version update is from late 2016. Meanwhile, my Kodi 17.6 experience (with a Pulse build) has been lousy. Very few streams actually work. Constant errors of all kinds, especially "PVR clients." I want the latest Kodi (or the best steaming) product available to where I don't need to constantly replace add-ons that won't work. Right now, only Covenant works about 1/3 the time. Bennu and others are "removed." Should I get a new box? Or are there ways to get working content with this one? Which makes more sense? Thank you kindly in advance.

Can you please tell people they can save their Kodi setup themselves Ann's not use a build. Do a video explaining how to use BACKUP add-on. How to install it, how to choose the save destination, (I use a thumb drive, and reload after reset) and then how to restore after reset. Thanks, keep the videos coming. !!!

I should be running about 50bps download but am at 5mps.  Using a TP-Link for Ethernet and have checked it with laptop and all fine.  have rebooted etc.  Wondering if the hard reset would be the answer, or if that is more for buffering etc.  Thanks I enjoy your videos, have a great day

emmams5 (11 months ago)
I appreciate you giving your time to upload this video but six and half minutes just to tell us to do a factory reset, was that really necessary? It drives me mad when YouTubers make a documentary to explain how to do one simple action, it just confuses people who may not be up to speed on techie stuff and just want a simple, short tutorial.
John Hammoud (11 months ago)

SoloMan... may thanks for your videos it is really informative, thus may i ask you for a favor? it is good idea for the the builds thus can you show me how to make my own android build which includes all apps i want. for me i'm responsible for IPTV system and need to upgrade and take care of the boxes in order to keep the service in good conditions thus i thought if i can make my build including Kodi and some addons then use to upgrade the boxes and flush them too... many thanks in advance
Niecy Is here. (1 year ago)
Good idea, but why not just install a junk file cleaner? I use the free version of Advanced systme care. Sometimes the culprit can be your VPN, yes, we should use it with KODI, but the box speed unfortunately takes quit a hit. The faster the internet, the bigger the hit, because most VPNs have a data limit and bring your speed down for the detour to another country. Espcially, the free ones. I recommend installing a speed tester, then use it with and without the VPN to see the difference. A factory reset is a surefire way to clean things up, and would appear to be the only option if you've tried everything else.

May want to add that in most cases this will wipe absolutely everything including the OS that supports the Play Store. You will need to know how to re flash your box with the OS image...you're really starting from scratch once wiped...for real. . .

Emanuel Washington (1 year ago)
allow me to clear things up... Simply keep up with what you are doing. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOOO REASON,.. AT ALL!... TO FACTORY RESET YOUR BOX. Peep game.. These android tv boxes are exactly what they are.. ANDROIDS. They require care, alot of people forget or don't even notice that they are dealing with an computer. clean your entire system cache, close all background apps you are not using (just as you would an android phone) if your buffering seems slow not only reset the modem/router but also your network settings. Be advised if you reset your network settings you WILL have to re-enter the wifi password(s) and re-link all Bluetooth devices as well. Also when clearing the entire system catch, note that all temporary files WILL be deleted.. If you use apps that send files via Bluetooth or remotely BE SURE to move important received files to an permanent location or they will get cleared. Last bit of advice. don't be too quick to listen to just anyone.. do more research reguarding your concerns because sometimes others may give you the wrong advice. I salute those who give tutorials. especially you Solo because you stay trying to help someone and thats cool.. but DUDE... why on earth would you advise noobs to factory reset their droids.. lol.. you should know... most of the people viewing this are people who are new to this type of stuff.. half of them don't know how to even put kodi back on, or program it for that matter.. at this rate I SHOULD START DOING TUTORIALS.. You gone have me awakening from my slumber dude.... It's not time... lol..
Mike Nurse (1 year ago)
He does say that you'll lose everything though. It's not like he straight up tells you do the factory reset and all your problems will go away, he also says its a huge undertaking. People just hear certain parts of things though
Tony Antoniou (1 year ago)
Emanuel Washington. Well done, that's very good advice for noobs. This tutorial is bad advice to tell them to do a factory reset as it would be a headache to put everything back to the way it was. Also, it doesn't always add apps the way you buy it. This is ONLY a solution if you want to lose all your precious data and then left walking around like a headless chicken. And what's the short clip of him opening up the android box. Surely he is confusing people, although he did say that it's not about opening it, but what's the point of showing the clip in the first place anyway. Strange. Is this video monetized, I wonder.
Guided Hand (1 year ago)

I have Factory reset mine multiple times. Still slow, and hangs constantly :(. I think it's related to the RAM usage. It seems really high on Idle (85%) That's even after a reboot
Darren Connelly can u say the name of the box u using and specs?
Darren Connelly (1 year ago)
Giuseppe Benvenuto a cheap ass £25 one. BUT it worked perfect when new, so I'm confused? Remember, I have factory reset it multiple times, so it can't be a software problem, even though the ram usage is extremely high on idle which might suggest it is, but it can't be
Giuseppe Benvenuto (1 year ago)
Which box are you using?
Giuseppe Benvenuto (1 year ago)
With all these apps, they don't make a crap cleaning app like CCleaner? That is ridiculous. I guess that would be 21 century like. I am just about to cut my cable. I dropped AT&T and ordered Xfinity 75 Mbps internet same price I was paying AT&T for 24 Mbps. I am going to purchase the SkyStream One box. What if you have a paying IPTV service? Then you have to reinstall that as well and sometimes they give you a temporary download link via purchase. What do you think SoloMan?
joe pish (1 year ago)
thats what i do with my laptop. U have to after a while.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I agree 100% wipe it clean. Why couldn't you copy your APK's to a usb and then when your system is clean reinstall from the usb?? I'm not an Android techie YET! Just seems to make sense and why have a bunch of junk on a TV Box?? Just curious.

Hi ya i did factory restart on my X 96 android and it did no good at all it took all the apps including megabox and left me with show box and even when I click on that all it seems to do is just load and nothing else, it does that on all apps I click on . I am contact to the Internet that hasn't gone off could you please tell me what to do.
Kenny Maldonado (1 year ago)
All that is probably because you need to update the OS on the box... if you had it for a long time and you do a factory reset it will go back to the state it was when you bought it and some apps won't work on out dated versions of the Operating System
Montresa Holden (1 year ago)
So how do I st up the Ott Tv box??? And is it suppose to be on the HDMI input
Thomas Hynes (1 year ago)
OK so lets just clear a few things up. 1. Buffering is because your internet sucks, it's not the box. 2. 8-10 what kind of weird ass time scale is this?
Solo Man (1 year ago)
No you were NOT being nice, i didn't appreciate you using a course word on my channel, i don't course myself so neither should you, at least not here "weird ass" is not proper and that is why i replied the way i did. Future comments from you will be automatically deleted.
Thomas Hynes (1 year ago)
Solo Man I was being nice. no need to get your knickers in a twist. Buffering is your device waiting for content to load / provide from the server. So faster Internet does mean faster loading, while I'll agree with you it also depends on the websites server and their bandwidth too. FYI I've been an IT technician for the last 10 years. If you can't take criticism you shouldn't be on YouTube it was your mistake mixing up basic terminologies.
Solo Man (1 year ago)
To clear things up you must have "at least" basic knowledge. Buffering is caused MAINLY due to the websites and/or servers you're streaming from being "overloaded" with so much traffic, especially during peak hours. You can have 200 mbp/s internet speeds and still experience heavy buffering.
Thanks! But i use Nova Launcher i think its a little bit faster :)

if your movies freeze maybe is due to your internet speed is better if you wired your box

if you guys wanna do the factory reset, make sure you have all the apk back up,after all you only have the empty box with the initial factory installed apps.
