How do you keep Zoom from lagging while streaming movies?

My friends and I have started watching movies on zoom together, but it keeps lagging really badly for my friends. I connect my computer to my wireless router via an Ethernet cord, but it still lags a lot for my friends. Is this all on my friends to fix their lag, or can I do something to help it lag less? I’m sorry in advance if I’m missing something really obvious, I’m very dumb with computers and have just started to try to learn more about them. Thanks

    Everybody, you and your friends need more Internet bandwidth.  The lag is happening while zoom buffers packets due to slow Internet speed.
