Buffering endlessly

  Blackcats 18:38 08 Aug 2009

Hi all, I have a favorite cooking site, but when I try to load 'how to' video's on the site, it just keeps saying buffering, and never loads so I can watch it. Is there somethings in my internet settings that I need to tweek?

Any chance of posting a link to the site?

Keeps on buffering for me as well. I assume it must be their site/server then.
I.E 7 and Vista.

Thank you folks, glad to know it's not my lack of knowledge. Do you suppose that it will right itself at some point? this has been happening all week.

Yep - same in Firefox and XP and no sign of internet activity whilst the message is displayed. It is them not you!

WOW! I am amazed at the rapid replies, this does not happen so much on other sites. Great. Thank you all so much.

I get the same problem - may well be the site. Have you previously been able to watch the videos OK?

See if you can watch one of these News videos half way down the page on the right - if so your system should be fine.

Sorry, had to go out for a while. I don't get any video on the BBc site, Sea Urchin, just a white space where it should be.

BBC works for me.

Just to be sure try one of these (I'm sure you're not remotely interested in the content but see if one will play) click here .
