    Anyway to reduce latency/clarity on Facetime?
    I'm trying to record someone speaking via Facetime from their iPhone to my Mac.
    Is their anyway to reduce latency? Instead of wifi to wifi, would a landline from my Mac help? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Connect by ethernet cable.

    Use an audio only app to cut down on bandwidth usage

    Use the iPhone in a very high signal area or on good quality wifi
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    How can I improve Macbook wi-fi?
    I have a 2009 Macbook. Is their any device or upgrade I can add to it to improve Facetime video call sessions? I'm not looking for inexpensive solutions, I need it improved for work. Something that might help with latency, speed or quality for when I'm traveling. Thanks

    There are too many variables when traveling to try to pinpoint improving a FaceTime call. A FaceTime call depends mostly on the connection which exists from the caller to the received end. Unfortunately, not all hotels, motels, and other visitor hostels use good quality hardware. Most are like trying to make a FaceTime call from Starbucks. You might try carrying along an Apple Airport Express with you to help extending the connection, but whether that will improve the call depends mostly again on the initial connection.
