On-Demand Supported Devices
While our site and player may work on older setups, we strongly recommend keeping your system as up to date as possible. Browsers and operating systems are constantly releasing bug fixes, security updates, and improvements, and it’s our responsibility to keep up with them as well. Using the latest browser version can always help to prevent unexpected problems with the MK Pilates pages and the general internet at large.
Below you’ll find our minimum requirements for streaming through MK Pilates.com, playback, and apps.

*1H.264 video (required for viewing MK Pilates videos) is only supported in Firefox for Windows 7 and later.

Internet Connection Requirements (playback)
We require minimum stable speeds of 1 Mbps or faster in order to view our lowest quality, SD 360p. Since bandwidth tends to fluctuate for a number of unforeseen variables, we always recommend you use a dedicated Internet line of 5 Mbps or faster to stream high quality videos on the Internet. For optimal performance, a hardwired connection via Ethernet is best, but if you prefer to use Wi-Fi, be sure that your router is configured correctly and that your network is not being shared with other devices (this can limit the starting speeds you pay your ISP for).
Not sure what speeds your device is receiving? Visit https://www.speedtest.net/ (on mobile or desktop) for an estimate. We recommend performing this test a few times since bandwidth can change.
