Livestreaming sometimes works differently for different devices. Depending on the device you choose, you might have a different experience with your livestreaming. The thing is, many people don’t really know about these restrictions and differences. If you really want the best experience with your livestream, here are the best things to keep in mind for each option.
Computers will give you the most power when you watch a livestream. That means that most computers won’t have the lagging and freezing issues that sometimes plague livestreams on mobile phones or tablets. Especially if you’re watching a frenzied, high-energy livestream, such as a livestream of a video game, it’s a good idea to consider a computer before you move to a phone or tablet.
When it comes to power, tablets come in second. Sure, they’re not as powerful as a computer, but they’re typically more powerful than a phone. However, tablets typically suffer from a lack of apps and other opportunities. You may need to watch a livestream through the web browser on your tablet, which can be annoying and difficult to figure out. Still, the large screen and portability combined make a tablet an appealing option for many mobile lovers.
If you’re thinking only about power, phones typically rank lowest. However, power shouldn’t be the only thing you’re thinking about. Phones provide an advantage because they’re super-portable, and many people choose phones when they can’t have a computer or tablet out. Plus, because phones are so widespread, many websites and streaming services offer apps for the most commonly-used software services that can help you maximize your streaming opportunities.
4. Important Things to Keep in Mind
These are the three most common devices you’ll probably use to watch a livestream. However, they’re far from the only options. Keep these important points in mind as you choose your device.
- Hybrid Products
There are some devices that are more of a “hybrid” between two of these concepts. For example, there are some ultra-lightweight computers that can function as more of a tablet than a computer when necessary. If you’re choosing one of these devices, it’s a good idea to look at the power of the device, the options you have for watching livestreams, and any apps you might be able to download.
- Unusual Operating Systems
Although most websites and livestreaming platforms work with regular operating systems, there are some operating systems that these platforms might not work well with. For example, Chromebooks run on their own operating system, which can be very useful in some situations, but frustrating in others. Check your device’s operating system before getting ready to watch a specific livestream.
In general, the best way to know whether a livestream will work with your device is just to try out a livestream with it. You can load up the OneClass livestream and watch it on your device for at least 10-15 minutes. During this time, you’ll be able to spot any recurring issues with the livestreaming platform on your device. You’ll also be able to learn some important information through the livestream. No matter which livestream you plan to watch most frequently, your best option is just to try it out.
