video play speed

  twicklad 13:22 12 Jan 2009

A question from a friend. She frequently watches videos from a website.(using AOL) Suddenly her pc is now playing about 10 seconds and then stops to buffer, plays another 10/15 seconds stops to buffer and so on.
I watch the same videos on my pc (with BT)and have no problem. Is this likely to be a broadband connection speed problem or a fault in her video card.
Any ideas?

It could be hardware or video acceleration being set too high. See:

on how to adjust the settings.

Try one step back at a time.

Also check out WMP's Tools>Options>Performance tab; Enable Detect connection speed and Use default buffering.
