slow streaming and very jerky

  howard64 14:56 24 Jan 2010

I am trying to watch the Jay Leno show from NBC and the streaming is extremely slow often producing 20 seconds then stopped for almost a minute. Running xp pro 64bit with 4GB ram and 512MB graphics card. My broadband is about 6MBits and most things run very fast. I have reduced hardware acceleration to zero and have nothing else running in the back except virus and firewall. Does anyone have any suggestions for speeding things up?

I've found Video Accelerator to be a help - maybe worth a try

Depends what site you are watching the stream from. Could just be busy.

Hi JohnWilliams I have tried at 6 a.m. 11 a.m. 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. and it always the same.
