If you wish to set the speed of your connection for video streaming manually on the Roku video player, there is a code you can enter to access the speed override settings.
- Take your Roku remote and go to the Home screen.
- Use the following sequence to access the “Select a speed…” screen:
- Home 5 times
- Rewind 3 times
- Fast Forward 2 times.
- A screen will appear where you can set the speed you desire.
You may want to start by trying the 3.5Mbps setting, test playback, then try a different setting for best results.
The “Enable playback debugging” option turns on a feature that will display the speed you are getting while playing video. This setting only works with streaming set to “automatic“.
