I recently was encountering buffering issues with SMPlayer, so for anyone who's encountering that same problem, here's a simple trick to fix it:

Go to Options>Preferences>Network> lower the playback quality. After I changed mine to 480p, it played flawlessly. Idk if that has something to do with the hardware I'm using (I'm using an old laptop).

Sounds like a slow internet connection. If not, could be insufficient memory. It does't sound like a problem with SMPlayer itself. "Old laptop" is kinda a clue.

Thanks for pointing that out. I never realized that until you mentioned it.
