    1. Shut down applications that might be taking up network resources such as downloads or streaming audio or video.
    2. If you have other browser tabs open, close them except for the one you're using to watch the video.
    3. Restart your browser.
    4. Update your browser to the latest version.
    5. Try running the speed test.
