Videos Not Working on iPhone – Fix Your Internet Connection

iPhone Won’t Play Videos Without Jitter, Buffering or Disconnects?

It’s extremely annoying when your videos begin buffering or disconnecting while connected on your iPhone to WiFi. Don’t settle for choppy or jittery videos either. It’s time to solve this issue where videos are not working on iPhone once and for all. Enjoy uninterrupted streaming of your favorite videos, wherever you may be, no issues.

With its one click connection protection, EdgeWise eliminates issues related to connectivity and online privacy. See below how it works!

Why Are Videos Not Working on iPhone? How Can You FIx It?

YouTube, Facebook and other streaming video websites use the active Internet connection on your iPhone. Whether you’re commuting by bus, train or just walking down the street, you probably use public WiFi networks. As you move around, the signal strength of the WiFi hotspot you’re connected to will change, resulting in a change in speed performance. When you’re nearing the edge of a WiFi hotspot, you will most likely get an Internet connection that doesn’t work.

Also, sometimes your phone connects to a bad WiFi hotspot. This means that although it’s connected to WiFi, it doesn’t have any Internet connectivity.

In both cases – edge of WiFi and bad WiFi connection – your iPhone doesn’t know you don’t have a working connection to the Internet. The iPhone will stay connected to the WiFi hotspot (even if it doesn’t work) until:

  • it finds a stronger signal for the same WiFi network;
  • it detects another known WiFi network to connect to;
  • it will switch to cellular eventually.

During all this “waiting” time, you will not be able to load and stream your videos correctly. That’s how you get choppy videos, buffering and even disconnects – videos are not working on iPhone.

iPhone Video Playback Is Not Working – How to Solve the Problem

If your smartphone cannot find any known WiFi networks nearby, it’ll switch between WiFi and cellular. The problem is that iPhones prefer WiFi connections rather than cellular ones by default. Even if your WiFi connection is poor and slow, your iPhone will stay connected to that while it’s in its range. Only after it loses signal, will it switch to cellular.

In this case, as you get away from the hotspot, your speed drops and your streaming apps like YouTube, Facebook and others will have streaming issues. It will keep buffering or even disconnect until your iPhone switches to cellular.

How EdgeWise Helps when Videos Are Not Working on iPhone

EdgeWise Connect is an app for your iPhone. Just push the button to activate it and it runs in the background, acting as both a VPN and a connection manager:

  1. EdgeWise constantly monitors the quality of the WiFi signal.
  2. Once you step out of your WiFi range or connect to a bad hotspot, EdgeWise seamlessly moves your traffic over to your cellular connection.
  3. When you’re back in range of a good WiFi hotspot, EdgeWise moves your traffic back to WiFi to conserve potentially expensive cellular connections.

This way, EdgeWise rescues you from bad WiFi hotspots and connection gaps. You will get rid of the issue of videos not working on your iPhone!
