Speed Test Guide

Upload Bandwidth

We recommended a minimum of 20 Megabits per second (Mbps) download and 5 Mbps upload speed for HD quality.

Below are the recommended upload speeds for HD resolution streaming

Resolution  Minimum Upload Speed
1280x720 3000 kb/s
1920x1080 5000 kb/s
2560x1440 8000 kb/s
3840x2160 (4K) 12000 kb/s


To find your upload bandwidth, you will need to run a network speed test. We recommend using http://volumevideo.speedtestcustom.com/. When the speed test is finished running, you will see the final result of your upload speed test. 


Make the most of your internet connection by following these tips:

  • Use a hardwired Ethernet cable connection instead of WiFi
  • If you are using WiFi, try to be as close to the wireless router as possible
  • Check to make sure you and others on your network are not using bandwidth-heavy applications while you are streaming
