I have many videos on SharePoint. the problem is that when a user play the video he has to wait for it load completely and then watch. basically the video is not buffering. how can i enable the buffering/streaming option on SharePoint.

proof of concept: i monitored the videos loading completely from the developer tool and started playing the hole video was downloaded.

Video buffering is supported in SharePoint. The out of the box video player webpart supports buffering, however there are a lot of people who have experienced issues trying to buffer videos of large size.

You can probably try this

Actually, i enabled the BLOB cache from the web.config on the front end server which immediately enabled the buffering on SharePoint.

for more info follow this link: TN Configure cache settings


if you use sharepoint content query webpart to show videos from Asset Library, videos will be open in a pop up automatically instead of downloading it (as it happens in Content Editor Webpart). It may be behaviour of html5 enabled browser. But i tried this and it works
