Streaming videos - July 1st 2011, 12:24 PM

my internet connection is bizarre :/ Some days I can stream 1080p videos from youtube in no time. I can just sit there and watch a whole HD video without it stopping once. Other days it takes forever to stream a 480p video :/

Last night I tried to watch an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic on youtube and I ended up making a sandwich, drinking a cup of tea and watched some Family Guy just for it to stream half of the video >.>

Why is this? and how can i fix it?

It could possibly be your internet connection. If it starts taking awhile maybe try turning off wireless for 10 seconds, then turning it back on. Other then that I'm not really sure :/


And here you are living, despite it all.

That's what I do sometimes, it sometimes works but not always

I'm betting it is your internet. Check to see what your speed is supposed to be at. If it is a high speed thing, contact your service provider and ask what is up with the up downs. I know it also depends on who else is using the internet for doing what in your household-see if it is that.


Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show
