    Has anyone else had difficulties streaming MLB.TV lately? I have stuttering issues, low frame rate, and then "bounce-backs" when video plays, then bounces back a few seconds before cutting out.

    Specs: 2017 27-inch iMac, 3.5 Ghz with 40 MB RAM; newest flash downloaded right off of Adobe's site; Internet that tests at 80 down/5 up. Problem happens with both Safari and Chrome. Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, et al, play fine.

    Although I've had problems with MLB.TV in the past I haven't noticed any recently. Watching the Yankees-Mets right now on Chrome (60.0.3112.101) and it's smooth as butter.

    I'm using a 2017 27-inch, i7 4.2GHz and 40GB RAM. Yours sound like bandwidth issues in spite of the speed test results.

    I found a fix. Went into the MLB TV settings and unchecked the box that says "Launch games in standard video". Works fine now.
