How to get Zshare to work: Fixing Zshare’s broken videos and slow buffering

Zshare has a great selection of streaming videos but often has technical issues to go with it. Here are some quick ways to fix Zshare when it’s acting up:

Refresh the page, hit stop then play on the video, skip forward or backward in the video.
The fullscreen button fixes the "Close to Play" errorThe fullscreen button fixes the "Close to Play" error
Sometimes the “Close to Play” button on the ad doesn’t work and causes the ad to stay over the video while it plays. Click the full screen button to get rid of this.

Right-click on Zshare’s player and go to Settings. Find the Display tab and uncheck the Enable Hardware Acceleration checkbox. This feature can sometimes lead to compatibility issues with even the fastest graphics cards.

Go to the player’s Settings again. Go to the third tab called Local Storage. Move the slider to 10MB or Unlimited.

Start playing the video and pause it after a few seconds. Let it buffer all the way to the end and then play the video.

Update to the latest version of Adobe flash player.
