Check Your Download Speed

Yes, we know... your ISP says that you get at least a certain download speed for your computer broadband connection! We hate to tell you, but that's generally not true. They quote you for optimum conditions, which NEVER exists! Did you notice, they always say "Up to..." not that you will get the advertised speeds. You need to check your speeds and see what you are really getting. Check your download speeds! Are you getting the upload and download speeds your ISP says it's giving you? Check and see, you may be surprised!

Check Your Computer Resources

If everything above is okay, then the problem resides with your computer's ability to encode or decode the compressed streaming media. 99% of the computers should not have any problems, no matter how old they are. If your computer is having problems, they could be due to:
  • Corrupted software - Some software (your OS or Media Player) is corrupted on your computer
  • Low computer resources - there are too many programs running in the background on your computer. Software vendors want their software to run silently and you won't know it. It could be a hacker is using your computer and you don't know it. If this is the case, your computer doesn't have enough processor to encode or decode the streaming media at the same time.
  • Computer gremlins - who knows how it happened, maybe all you need is to restart or reboot your computer!
