Where exactly can I change this value? If've found "Preferences -> Tools -> Input/Codecs -> Network caching (ms)" but this value is in ms, not MiB.
Unfortunately it doesn't change that much. When I pause the stream and resume it 5 minutes later, it will cancel the stream after a few seconds. :(
And apart from that, VLC seems to "forget" the parts of the video that were buffered once, when trying to jump to a certain part of the video and back.
Maybe someone wants to fix it?

best regards
