Slow YouTube streaming

  silverous 14:06 19 Oct 2007


A colleague has a new laptop - a decent spec, dual core laptop running Vista Home Premium.

Their previous, much lower spec laptops ran Xp Professional.

They have noted that YouTube videos are stopping and starting a lot and wondered if Vista was the issue or if they'd got a "cheapo" laptop - the spec of the laptop is fine.

They've tried both wired and wireless so the connection in that respect isn't the issue.

General internet browsing is quick also so we don't think a problem there.

Do they need to do anything to vista firewall etc. to make YouTube quicker?
