I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! Haven't heard back from you so I'll go ahead and close this thread. I hope maratsade and Gabe's replies have provided some useful insight for you. To add onto that,
Unlike Netflix and YouTube, Amazon uses progressive streaming (the others use adaptive). A progressive video stream is a single video file being streamed over the internet. The progressive video will automatically expand or contract to fit the screen you are playing it on, but regardless of the device, the video file size will always be the same. If there is a poor Internet signal and the video stream cannot process quickly, a progressive video will pause and buffer. So there are inherently more issues with Prime than other streaming services because Amazon uses progressive video streaming.
Feel free to start a new thread if you have concerns you'd like to work out with us.
