    That depends on your internet speed - what plan did you get from your ISP?

    That also depends on the CPU speed. Your CPU has a benchmark score of 2433. My 10 year old Core2 Quad Q9400 has a benchmark score of 3340. Your CPU is really slow, and may not be able to catch up to the streaming video being delivered.

    As I recall you are in a boarding house where the internet is shared by everyone.

    The only way you will get decent speed is to purchase your own internet access, have a line installed in your room/apartment and used solely by you. Otherwise, sharing means everyone takes a bit of the speed assigned by the ISP. If the speed is up to 50Mbps and there are 25 people using the internet, you have 2Mbps for your use. Anything at that speed will buffer.
