    Same exact problem - tested - it has nothing to do with bandwidth. Problem description : toshiba A300-1ND Vista Home Premium



    Randomly , about 1/2 of the time it starts working very slow making
    video streaming not possible
    ( only streaming works slow , everything else works OK )

    It started work normal after
    1. moving to wireline - only helped once , didn't help second time
    2. reboot - helped once but didn't try second time

    At the very same time from very same sites , videos was streaming
    normally on other computers , including another Toshiba Satellite (
    different model ) - so it has nothing to do with my bandwidth ( 3Mbit/s )

You could start in figuring out what is eating the bandwidth by using a packet sniffer or a protocol analyzer its kind a complicated for first time users but its necessary to figure out whats going on on your network.

here are the link www.etherealsoft.com/ or http://www.wireshark.org/

hope this helps.

I have a Roku 2, live in the country and am trying to play a movie. It keeps stopping a reloading. what is wrong or what can I do?


Roku is an excellent streaming media player, but is ultimately limited by the delivery rate of your ISP's (Internet Service Provider's) continuous download speeds, used for streaming over the internet. ( Check what kind of speeds you're getting...) Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on "Begin Test" There are a number of websites you can use to check your connection speed to see if this is the source of the issue.
Most often, a slow connection, (under 300kbps) will cause the issues you've described. The slower the connection, the bigger the problem. This is most observable on Roku channels that don't detect, or compensate for slower connections, especially at high definition streaming rates.
( 720 High-Def streams work well above 1.5Mbps download rates, and 5Mbps is recommended as good rate for 1080 viewing)
At just under 3Mbps over DSL, we're able to watch two movies at the same time, in different rooms, on Netfix, at 720. I've heard that some people are experiencing issues watching just one movie delivered with a cable modem... Not sure what's going on there?
Some Roku Channels are better than others at delivering the best possible viewing experience. Some use poor compression technologies, or only deliver a 1080 Definition image. Using the best compression technology, detecting best streaming rate, etc... are where the most successful Roku channels come in.
Netflix for instance attempts to detect the optimum streaming rates for slower speed connections, and automatically compensates by reducing image definition when needed.
You might try selecting a lower definition for your display from the settings menu on your Roku device... I've seen some improvement with loading issues, by choosing a lower definition display for your television, even though you might be using a high-def television.

After setting up vizio streamer. I have singed up[ for netflixs and can which trilers but can not download moives what is the fix.


You cannot download movies to your Vizio streaming device. Do you download the moves you watch on TV ? Of course not. A TV allows you to watch movies, shows, etc.BROADCAST OVER THE AIRWAVES OR CABLE. Similarly, a streaming device allows you to watch movie, shows, etc. STREAMED/TRANSMITTED OVER THE INTERNET. So, if you can watch Netflix trailers on your Vizio, you can watch Netflix movies (but not download them). Select a Netflix movie, press Play on your remote and see what happens.

Choppy internet connection


If you are a frequent viewer of Internet-based video, then you know how frustrating it can be when streaming video doesn't play correctly. When a video is described as being "choppy," it can mean several things, including out-of-sync audio, stuttering frame rate and/or inconsistent stream speeds. However, although this term can mean several things, there are several ways to address all of these issues at once and help make your video viewing experience a bit smoother. Empty your Internet browser's cache and temporary files. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Clear Private Data Now" (in Firefox) or "Delete Browser history" (in Internet Explorer). When you browse the Internet, your browser collects information from the websites you visit and carries this information as temporary and cache files. Too many of these files can bog down your computer, so delete them. Disable hardware acceleration. Open your computer's "Control Panel" and then click "Display." Select the "Settings" tab, click on "Advanced" and then click "Troubleshoot." Drag the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. This procedure can help reduce the strain on your processor, which can lead to choppy videos. Add virtual memory. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can add extra RAM to your computer by plugging a USB mass storage device into the computer. The operating system will automatically convert the unused space into RAM. Run your disk defragmenting utility. Click "Start" and then select "Programs." Click "System Tools" and then "Disk Defragmenter." This utility will eliminate the fragmenting of files, which could be taxing your processor.

Video streaming that constantly buffers


At&t offers 4 speeds to its customers, 768 kbps 1.5 mbps, 3.0 mbps & 6.0 mbps.  On the 1.5 connection depending on what type of video you're watching, you will experience some glitching.  If your general internet seems slow, then scan for malware/spyware.  
I reccomend you use malwarebytes free version doesn't give realtime protection

HI.I was watchinglive streaming but there is a eror sudenly.this eror:rtsp://78.129.143.64/broadcast/pull/81.31.32.47:2030/broadcast/pull/81.19.7.50:3051/stv3.rmvb Can you help me...


Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....
