    OT: need geek help

    Is it normal to experience buffering delays of several seconds between 2 or 3 seconds of play time on all video clips? Is this caused by my internet connection? I use a Verizon usb gizmo. Is it possible to shorten, or eliminate these annoying delays. Some of the clips are essentially unviewable. I have an iMac with 1GB 667 MHz.

    I would assume its your internet. What speed is it and how long of videos? You could let it buffer before playing it then you shouldn't have the delays.

    Verizon cellular USB?


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I'm guessing that means you're using 3G data (if you have a Verizon USB stick), which means that your internet will range from Slow to oh-my-God-the-Cubs-might-win-a-world-series-before-this-video-loads Slow.

    Basically, you just have to pause the video and hope that it'll buffer up most of the entire thing before watching it, otherwise I don't think you'll ever be able to legitimately stream over that 3G stick... especially if you happen to be in an area that doesn't get ridiculously awesome service.
