Windows 7: Streaming Video - Need Help

Streaming Video - Need Help

Greetings,

I didn't know quite where to place this post...... I've been having problems viewing streaming video the past week and can't figure out why. All drivers are up to date.

When trying to view a film or TV show the video streams for about a minute and then starts to buffer gets to about 3 to 8% then freezes completely.

If anyone can give me a suggestion as to why this is happening and propose a solution, it would be appreciated.

Regards......

This can be caused by variable internet loading, server loading, and also by your provider throttling feeds. As you have high speed DSL, this is probably due to one of those factors, and not due to any errors on your machine.

If it only happens occasionally or at specific times, ( Peak load times for instance), then it is almost certainly one of those factors.

I've checked with my ISP a few times in the last couple of days and it doesn't appear to be an issue with them.

This problems happens all time any time of day..... It's growing very frustrating.

Give me an example of a feed you use where this occurs and I will try it myself to see if there are any problems with it.

Mike,

Try this TVShack • Watch The X Files S6E09 - S.R. 819 Online for Free! It's an X-Files episode I've been trying to watch, but I've tried others any they've not worked either.
