How to get Veoh Web Player and Veoh TV to work: Fixing broken Veoh videos and slow buffering

Veoh has a lot of great streaming videos. Unfortunately, it has a lot of problems with broken videos and failed programming as well. Here are some ways to fix it when it refuses to work:

For the Web Player:

Refresh the page, hit stop then play, skip into the video.

Toggle back and forth between Large and Small for video size several times.

Update to the latest versions of the Veoh web player and the Adobe Flash Player.

Right click on the video player and go to the Settings menu. Under the first tab labeled Display, turn off Hardware Acceleration to help with video card issues that sometimes result from this. In the third tab labeled Local Storage, drag the slider to the right until it reads Unlimited.

If after all this, Veoh Web Player doesn’t work, download and use Veoh TV.

For Veoh TV:

Update to the latest version of Veoh TV.

Pause the video, let it buffer, then hit play.

There are often multiple copies of the same video on Veoh TV. Sometimes alternate copies will work.

Go to the Options or Settings menu (depends on the version of Veoh TV) and find the option called Bandwidth Limit. Set this to Unlimited or as high as you want.

If there is a problem involving audio sync, consult our guide to fixing broken audio in streaming videos.

If after all these methods, Veoh doesn’t work, try a site from our list of alternatives to Veoh.
