video skips
im having trouble trying to watch videos on the internet. the audio is fine, but the video has "skips" in it for lack of a better definition. its not the connection, because i can watch the same videos(different websites) on my laptop thats also connected to my cable system thru a linksys router. it shouldnt be the desktop, its brand new with an AMD Athlon 64 processor 3800+, 1mg RAM, and a video card with 256mg shared, any ideas why the skips, and how to correct? thanks

they are not videos i download, just ones that i can click on to open with the websites own programs. a simple example is yahoo videos, or yahoo music videos. i've always been able to open them and they play with no problem, yet this seems to be struggling. i should have more than enough muscle to run even something this simple.

brand new pc, just out of the box today. everything seems to be fine, its really quick with everything, but when i click on videos i feel like ive gone back in time. i feel like i need to tell it to do something dif. a friend told me to check in explorer:
tools
internet options
advanced
mutilmedia options
and makes sure everything was checked. i ve done this and its still the same. i was just wondering if the default settings on something are making this miss a beat
