Check for other open applications – torrents, streaming sites, and other applications that need a lot of bandwidth and computer memory like Facebook video chat applications can limit your computer’s performance. If you have a computer that hangs after opening four or more new tabs on your browser, chances are you need to upgrade or minimize other internet activities while video chatting.
