    Here is the issue.

    No matter the website i go to to stream any video, be it youtube or spikedhumour... it takes up to 10 seconds to start streaming, then roughly every 5 seconds it has to rebuffer...

    The weird thing is, I typically download from 300kb/s to 1.2mb/s.

    So... I tried my own troubleshooting.
    First I tried multiple browsers.
    Firefox, EI, Flock, and Opera.
    All give me the same problem.

    So I kept on looking for a solution, and found a program called:
    Speedbid video Accelerator. (This is not an AD)

    It still starts off slow with the frequent rebuffering. But It does work as the video progresses, Its like it streams a part of the video to itself and the amount that it streamed is put into the video you are streaming... So not really the solution I was looking for... I will keep using it until I figure this out.

    I had multiple ads suggest a registry scan. So I bought a copy of some registry scanner at walmart... fixed some errors.... found hundreds... but then again these programs are always trying to make themselves amazing... I figured it wouldnt fix anything, and it didnt...

    I am new to this "proxy" thing i stumbled on, what do they do and can it help me?

    I am on a college campus, Internet isn't shared from what I can tell.
    If i can download up to 1.2megs a second I should be able to stream quite easily.

    Azereus Vuze, I have had this program for a while now. But I recently started to stream videos with it. With Vuze I am able to stream ANY video they have without any issues...

    So i assume this is a browser based issue.

    Can anyone help me out?

    I have tried other approaches...
    I have vista, And i Disabled iPv6, and disabled TCP Auto-Tuning.

    Neither helped....

    Oh and an update, I downloaded at 3.5 megs a second on the ubuntu website...

    I am curious if it is just vista in my case so I was going to try Linux OS... but partitions aren't working too well for me.

    Anyway... even if you cant help...
    Maybe you can post a possible source for my issue.
    I will do the work on the research....

    So far I have made the prediction that my issue that the internet is run through a campus network(router) and the security needs to be dampened. I am not connected via wireless, I have an Ethernet cord which runs into the wall.... not a modem... unless there is a modem behind the well......... riiiiiiight haha... so I am most likely run through a router.

    So far my issue remains exclusive to this forum.
