Where are you downloading this afore-mentioned video from? If it is YouTube (illegal by the way, I think), then it's probably because of a slow connection, or YouTube's fault.

If you're downloading from BitTorrent networks or P2P, you'll need to open ports on your router. To do that, open up your client, get to where it says the port, randomize it until you find a good number, and go to your router settings page.

Change your computer to a static IP setup, and I usually make sure that the numbers don't interfere, doing something weird like 168.192.1.234 because it is unlikely I will ever have 233 computers connected to my home internet.

Now just set it so that the port will forward to your computer, and you should experience faster speeds. For me, it was from 1.2kb/sec to 253kb/sec.
