Streaming from home internet doesn't start

There were no problem before but recently I can not stream videos with my home wifi connected. Instead if I connect to my mobile phone's hotspot it streams perfectly. Any solutions for that ?

  • Hi,

    I already tried all solutions you advised above, none of them works. I tried with several web browsers including Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Opera. I have 200Mbit/s internet at my home. Already made a speedtest with around 190Mbit/s. When I click play button video playback does not start, there is only loop icon middle of the screen. When I use my mobile phone as hotspot and use its internet everything works fine. So the problem only occurs when I am connected to home wifi.

  • Hi mesutm,

    It's likely an internet issue since your cellular hotspot works alright.

    Do give these a try to see if it helps:

    • Disable any proxies/VPN or possible tunnel softwares that might be routing your internet traffic 
    • Contact your Internet Service Provider to enquire if your network allows streaming or provides access to Viki (some networks might limit connection speeds or block certain video streaming sites)

    Otherwise, we suggest watching Viki on another internet network connection.

    Hope this helps!

    All the best,
