For the best video streaming experience through our FirstOrbit YouTube channel we recommend the following settings. We filmed First Orbit on board the International Space Station in HD, so please make sure that the resolution setting at the bottom right of the YouTube player is set to 720 or 1080. Depending on bandwidth the 720 option might make for the smoothest viewing experience - and looks as good as the 1080 version. But if you can avoid it try not to watch the film at the lower settings like 320 - as the compression turns the picture into a rather dissapointing mush!
