Buffering Problem

Firestick 4K running with ethernet cable and RD account and still having
a buffering problem. I try and use cache tornnets when I can. I do check
speed of my VPN to insure enough speed but still having problem.
Have Kodi installed with crew, and also have Cinema installed.
any suggestions

And sometimes it can be as simple as rebooting your modem and router! I’m also using a KODI Build with the Crew and The Oathe with AT&T Fiber and been having zero buffering issues of late but if/when I do first thing I do is reboot the modem/router

Download & completely run the app DefSquid. Use its Cleaner & Virus Scanner. Delete every App which is listed as Malicious & check as to why those which are Questionable.
I personally no longer use Cinema as every version I have found lately slows performance & is listed as Malicious in DefSquid or Questionable.
Buffering Problems using a Stick 4K, have you debloated the Firestick & stopped background running Amazon processes which greatly slows down the processor ?
How much “Free Cache” does the 4K Stick have ? You need a minimum of 1gig to efficiently operate.
My advice:
Buy a USB hub, make sure it is 10/100/1000 USB3.0, a Y adapter & a 32 GB USB 3.1 drive I prefer Samsung 3.1 because of the speed (250MB/s or higher work best 150MB/s is minimum necessary speed) then install every program you can on the USB drive. Mine have between 2.5 & 3GB available free cache. Debloat the 4K using the Debloat tool. Tech Doctor UK has excellent video’s on how to set up & use the DeBloat tool. Then check off on the 93 possible all Amazon Processes you want to stop & STOP Auto Firestick Updates.
