In this tutorial, we’ll be showing you how to fix slow download speed on VidMate.
As a VidMate user, you must have experienced this – slow download speed – at one point or another. And while it’s not exactly an error, it’s often caused by an in-app issue or issues associated with the host device, particularly internet connectivity.
To resolve this issue and speed things up, herein are some solutions.
How to Fix Slow Download Speed on VidMate
Below are some credible troubleshooting methods:
Method 1: Check Internet Connection
Basically, unstable internet connection is the main cause of slow download speed on VidMate or any other platform/browser. So, before, trying any advanced fix, ensure that your internet connection (Wi-Fi/router or mobile network) is stable. If it’s unstable, troubleshoot it as appropriate.
For mobile phones connected on a courier (mobile) internet network, troubleshoot your connection as follow:
- Close VidMate.
- Disconnect internet.
- Turn on Flight mode.
- Wait for a few seconds and turn off Flight mode.
- Reconnect internet.
- Reopen VidMate
If the app’s download speed still runs slow, try the next method.
Method 2: Enable Fast Download
VidMate comes with an updated feature tagged – “Fast Download Mode”. The feature is designed to increase the normal download speed of videos on the app. And in the event that the app’s download speed is running below normal, you can use this feature to speed things up a notch.
To enable this mode:
- click on the Me tab in the menu window of the app;
- go to the Settings menu;
- select Download Settings;
- enable Fast Download Mode; and
- follow the prompt commands to finish up.
After this, your should experience increased download speed.
Note: If you’re running an outdated version of VidMate (and/or Android), this feature may be missing in the app.
Method 3: Update VidMate
Regular updates are constantly being released for VidMates, and these updates come with bug fixes. So, if the app is not up-to-date, it’s not uncommon to encounter slow download speed.
Also, the “Fast Download” feature, as pointed out earlier, is a relatively new feature, which may not be available on outdated versions of VidMate.
Therefore, to fix things up, in this case, simply update the app to the latest version, and you should be good.
