This is probably too simple, but here goes--
A website is having a conference and they are streaming the conference real time using QuickTime. As each session finishes, they put that session up on the website, and it is available to download as a mp4 (right click, save target as etc).
However, 3 days now I haven't seen more than 10 seconds of viewable streaming at one time because the picture is broken up into hundreds of pieces, the sound is choppy, and mostly just stops; I have to x out and go into the conference again and again.
Even worse, the archives are downloading insanely slow. A 1 1/2 hour session is downloading to my desktop at 29KB/Sec and it says it will take more than 5 hours; the same goes for all the sessions.
I've contacted the web streaming staff and they have no idea of how to fix these things...
I have uninstalled and reinstalled QuickTime, made all the suggested technical adjustments, my laptop is fairly new, 2 GB memory with 50% free, HP Pavilion Media Center Edition, Windows XP Pro, is defragged etc.
I've never had any trouble watching streaming media before and have never had download speeds this nutty slow....QuickTime seems awful and useless.
Any suggestions? I paid to watch this conference and to be able to download the archives; at this rate, it will take weeks.
