Terrarium TV not working? Reason and solutions

Terrarium TV is a mobile or android APK file that contains a library of TV shows and movies to watch. The app fetches videos from multiple online links.

That means the application does not upload or host any videos, media files, or films. Furthermore, it does not store media stream links on its servers.

All links fetched are from secure sources and of HD quality. You can use the app for unlimited viewing of any video you want.

But from time to time, many people complain that Terrarium TV is not working on their end. Now that you are here, you have experienced this problem too and our guide will provide a solution.

There are several reasons why Terrarium is not working on FireStick or any other platform. In this guide, we will address these issues and provide working solutions.

How to fix Terrarium TV issues when it is not working

TIf Terrarium TV won’t play or won’t work on the Android box, you can fix the issue in the following ways:

1. Check your internet connection

If it is buffering issues, it means you have a poor internet connection. To be able to stream seamlessly, you should have a minimum internet speed of 3Mbps.

But since Terrarium fetches HD links from various sources, you will need a higher speed of 10Mbps.

Your internet connection may be slow because of an ongoing outage. Also, it may be because of heavy traffic on your network, or your ISP has capped your data usage.

Data throttling happens when you use more than what is allocated to you.

Since you are streaming HD videos, you may have gone beyond your limits hence data throttling. When the connection is slow, Terrarium won’t download links.

In that case, you need to upgrade to a new plan to avoid such occurrences.

2. Use the recommended servers

The Terrarium TV on the Android box gives you access to unlimited streaming links Terrarium TV does not upload or store videos. It fetches links from servers stationed in various locations.

But to use the application without issues, you need to use the recommended servers. Some of these servers include AmazonDrive, GoogleVideo, and DropBox-FastServer among others.

The servers will deliver the videos you want to watch at fast speeds. As such, they will reduce buffering issues to a greater extent.

You should only use the recommended servers to improve your streaming experience.

3. Use the MX Player

When installing Terrarium TV on FireStick, the app will ask you to install a media player. The app itself does not have a media player. You will notice the app recommending a player for you.

In this case, you need to use the “Yes Player” as the supported media player for the app. If you do not want to use the Yes Player, consider using VLC or MX player.

You will experience fewer issues with the app if you are using the right media player.

4. Use a VPN

The Terrarium TV app won’t download movies if you are in a restricted area. It will not download geo-restricted content.

Since Terrarium fetches links from many sources, the sources may either be illegal or not.

To get around this issue, use a VPN (Virtual Private Server). A VPN will hide your online browsing or streaming activities.

You will be able to bypass content geo-restrictions, government surveillance, and ISP throttling.

5. Fixing Terrarium TV server issues

Terrarium TV can stop working if there is a problem with the server that is hosting the content you want to access.

The app only fetches links to the videos you want to watch from different servers. Once you open the links, your device will try to stream the content from the hosting server.

The app always tries to fetch working links. In other cases, it can retrieve bad links that will cause issues when streaming videos. Bad connections can occur if the hosting server is experiencing a slowdown or downtime.

When this happens, videos won’t open on FireStick. Also, you will experience buffering problems from time to time.

If a problem exists with the hosting servers, there is not much you can do to fix the issue. The best solution is to wait or open a link to a different server. Server issues usually occur when trying to stream HD and 4K content.

You will not experience the problem if you are streaming the Standard HD videos. Furthermore, problems arise when the server is unable to handle many streaming requests.

6. Clear app data

You need to clear app data to refresh Terrarium TV. When you clear data, you will also be removing your settings. In other words, you will restore the app to default settings.

Consider clearing the app cache to remove dead links and fix buffering issues.

If you are using the app on Android, follow the steps below to clear app data.

  • Go to Settings
  • Select Applications
  • Tap on Manage Installed Applications
  • Scroll down to locate Terrarium TV and tap on it
  • You will see two options namely Data Size and Cache Size
  • Tap on Clear Data

You should tap on clear data again on the next screen to complete the process.

7. Fixing issues after an update

If Terrarium TV won’t load after an update, it means you have not downloaded the new updates correctly. It can also suggest the latest updates are not compatible with your device.

You should uninstall the app, download a new one, and install it. Updates are crucial because they fix many things and add more features. The updates will fix bugs, add more content, and add more links to the app.

8. Fixing Subtitles issues

If Terrarium TV won’t open subtitles, several reasons can explain why. First, the subtitles are not available. Second, your media player does not support subtitles.

Third, the subtitles are out of sync. You can fix these problems by using a media player that supports subtitles.

The MX player is an excellent example of a media player you should use. It auto-syncs subtitles when downloaded online. By doing so, it prevents the subtitles from being out of sync.


Hopefully, this guide has enabled you to fix the Terrarium TV not working problem. Some issues occur because you are using an outdated version of the app.

In this case, you can correct the issue by updating your app.
