Mobile and 3G / 4G network costs.

We recommend that you stream videos when connected to Wi-Fi. You can also stream videos when connected to 3G/4G, but please remember your mobile operator may charge for the data you use on their network. If you’re unsure how much 3G/4G data costs or what your data allowance is, please contact your mobile network operator. Mobile network operators calculate data usage by the megabyte (MB) and you may have a monthly data usage allowance.

My video has a poor resolution. What should I do?

Time for Geography uses the Vimeo video streaming, which adapts the resolution of the video depending on the speed of your internet connection. You can increase the resolution by clicking on the HD pop-up menu at the bottom of the video player. However, if your connection speed is slow, the video may pause to buffer. If this happens, try reducing the resolution again.
