1. AC­CESS A HID­DEN MENU TO KILL BUFFER­ING

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

If you find your­self in­fu­ri­ated by con­stant buffer­ing, try this hack. If you're on a PC, press Shift + Alt + Left Mouse Click, and if you're us­ing a Mac, press Shift + Op­tion + Click. This will open Netflix's di­ag­nos­tic menu.

From here, se­lect the Stream Man­ager. This is the only place where you can man­u­ally ad­just the buffer­ing rate. By in­creas­ing the buf­fer rate, you can force Netflix to down­load much more video to your com­puter prior to show­ing the video.

You will have smoother, high qual­ity video, and less pauses in-be­tween for buffer­ing, but you will have a longer wait be­fore the video starts to play. By de­creas­ing the buf­fer rate, you risk chop­pier, lower qual­ity video - the video, how­ever, will play much quicker.
