Crackle System Requirements

Crackle offers very high quality video streams, so they require a faster connection than some other video sites (Crackle does not support dial-up connections). To make sure Crackle will play properly check your connection speed ~ And on a side note: always hard-line your internet connection if possible; WiFi simply may not cut it. If your connection is less than 500 kbps (kilobytes per second)/0.5 mbps (megabytes per second) you will find it difficult to watch Crackle Free Movies. If you would like to test your internet speed go to https://speedtest.net.

What could be better than watching Crackle’s free movies on your laptop while curled up in bed, or on the PS3 that is hooked up to your HD big screen. Even better – without the aggravation of trying to find something good on satellite or digital cable to watch only to find that nothing is on, and that your paying $100 a month for channels you don’t watch.
