Hi @richardit,

Are you sure it’s due to a lack of RAM or as a whole lack of resources? I think before upgrading you should try and find the reason behind the issues. For instance, do you see a pattern when videos are not working properly, when they do, can you spot high load on your Droplet or can you see something else? Where is your Droplet located and from where you are accessing the videos?

I think those questions should be answered before upgrading the Droplet.

Having said that, you can always try to upgrade to the next Droplet and if it works, that’s great. If you still experience issues, you can always upgrade once more until you find the right package for you.
