Hi, im having this weird problem and i dont even know how is this possible.

If i use Chrome/Fifefox/Edge to watch Twitch streams, like you would normal do, it keeps buffering every 5 sec on 720p, even on 480 or 360p it buffers too (less than in 720p), the same happens on mobile using the Twitch app. BUT if i use Streamlink Twitch GUI, which is a third party application to watch Twitch, the streams works perfect on 720p, no buffer at all. If im not wrong the only thing that Streamlink does is connect directly to the Twitch server where the streamer is hosted avoiding ads and web browser.

I dont know where to start looking for a solution or what tests should i do. Maybe you guys can help me.

Here is a screen of the bandwidth monitor while watching one streamer, you would see that as soon as i closed Streamlink and started watching from Chrome the same streamer at the same quality the usage change drastically.

Thanks!
