Hello, my name is Britton. The main problem with satellite internet is the latency (the time it takes for each bit of information to travel from your home, to a terrestrial broadcast station, then to a satellite in orbit, then back down to a terrestrial broadcast station and so on..) The speed of light becomes a limiting factor here.That said, live video is almost always going to be a little bit choppier than video that has been pre-recorded. In your case, it's probably best to just pause the movie for a bit, maybe 30-60 seconds to give your computer a chance to buffer the video. This will allow it to "catch up" a bit and download parts of the movie that you haven't watched yet so as you continue watching the video clip, it will always have some of the movie stored.
Hi, Britton. So, if I am going to view a video that is 4 minutes long, just start, then hit pause for a minute before viewing and it should run straight through?
Yes, that will typically alleviate the choppiness and pauses that you see. Are these YouTube videos?
Yes, when you watch them, you know the progress bar (little moving dot that shows you where you are in the movie)? It sits above the play/pause controls...
O.K., thank you very much! It has been driving me crazy! I will do this. It is worth $38!!
Excellent :) Let me know if it doesn't work or if you have more questions.
