    I like to view music videos on a site called Launch.com. I have a high-speed cable connection (advertised at 500 kbs). Lately, when I try to view videos at the highest speed available (the site lets you stream at various speeds), there are pauses in the video, no video at all and sometimes breaks and pauses in the audio as well. Here are my questions:

    Are there problems with Launch.com? Is their server gagging trying to keep up with the traffic? (remember--this used to work just fine until a month or two ago).

    I have Norton AntiVirus and update it daily. There are no issues here. I'm not behind a firewall, no issue here either. Is there something I can change in IE5.5 to change the buffering (or is it cache) for streaming? If so, how?

    My carrier is Charter Pipeline. Does anybody out there have problems with streaming multi-media using Charter?

    Can somebody else go to Launch.com, watch a video at 300 kbs and tell me if they have the same problem?

    Ran a video Janet Jackson at 300kb windows media through Road Runner cable with no problems. You may try removing all but systray and explorer through the crtl, alt, del, end task and see if that helps. If it does not you may have to take a look at what is running in background using msconfig and see if there is anything you can cut back on to free up resources.
