Samsung Series 7 Chronos

I have had my Series 7 for just over a year but am finding loading videos a nightmare. YouTube videos take an age to load and in HD i can basically forget about it!

Anyone got any advice or having the same issues?

Re: video's

That's interesting: a one-minute video that takes 5 minutes to play (assuming you mean 'play' when you say 'load').

This could be caused by a slow Internet-connection. So find a friend with a 100 mbps glass fiber connection and try again. Any ADSL or cable connection of at least 20 mbps should be fine for hd also.

What does the usual internet speed test say with you?

Internet speeds

In reply to: Re: video's

Well, i am living in China and my internet is a tad rubbish. Saying that, videos load/play/buffer quicker on my girlfriends much older laptop.

With my VPN on, the download speed is: 3.88 Mbps and Upload speed is: 3.94 Mbps
With my VPN off, the downlaod speed is: 4.91 Mbps and Upload speed is: 4.91 Mbps

I used the laptop is the UK (where I bought it) and i still struggled with video speeds and quality.

I think my drivers are up to date

Surely it can't be solely the internet?
