Are you running some Microsoft Video Player? If so try others like VLC Player or Media Player Classic.
I recently received a Dimension E521, 32 bit, 1Gb Dell computer with Vista OS as a birthday gift. I also have Verizon DSL.
I love to watch network reruns and old movies on the internet. Some videos I am able to watch without any problems. With others there is continuous buffering. Even Cnet videos stop and start constanstly.
I have tried lowering the buffer, as was suggested by someone at Dell, but it did not help. I have even tried the pause (until the buffer fills) and play. But it gets extremely annoying after several attempts.
I have searched your forums for a solution, but found none helpful. However, I did learn that bandwidth is important, so I tested the bandwidth.
I used your bandwidth tester to test the speed of my DSL. My average bandwidth is 659 kbps (Verizon DSL is up to 768 kbps).
Can you suggest a solution for this problem?
