windows media player 9 was downloading video content really fast until last few weeks.
eg. 25 min video would take 5 mins.
Now 20 sec content takes over a min.
mpeg is a lot slower than wmv. any suggestions, thanks

System details would help a bit more, Broadband or dialup, how full is your hdd and how defragmented. System memory can slow things down as can trying to dl at peak times ie between 6pm and 11pm.
Have you run antispyware progs?
