How to optimize VLC
Step 1: Open VLC media player, select “Tools“, and click on “Preference“.
Step 2: Next, click “Input / Codecs” show setting “All” option at the bottom of the window. Click “Input / Codecs” in the left sidebar.
Step 3: If the file that is buffering is playing from a local hard drive (Static M3U file), look for the “File Caching (ms)” option under “Advanced” on the right side. The caching value here is estimated in milliseconds, so setting the value to 1000 will buffer for 1 second. The issue with setting this option too large is that if you want to manually skip to a new point, there will be a larger lag while the content is buffered again.
If the file you are trying to play is located on a network share (Dynamic M3U url), you can change the caching value for “Network Caching (ms)”.

- Now, based on your Internet speed you can increase the cache size.
