hi guys... I just want you to help me in this problem if its ok.. I have a Toshiba L510 notebook for about a year now.. about two weeks ago i was watching a video from animecrazy.net using google chrome as my browser. I just notice that the video took a lot of time to buffer which is unusual because before it was buffering fast. Then i browse youtube and watch some videos and it was fine and the video is loading fast. Then i tried other video streaming sites like megavideo and same situation with animecrazy.net. The video is loading slow... I was just bothered because all video streaming sites i browse except youtube are buffering slow...I also tried other browser like firefox and IE but the same happens..I am using windows 7 starter.. hope you can help me in this.. Thanks..

Does this happen all the time or only certain times of the day? I just ran 5 minutes of a video on animecrazy.net and it seemed to run fine. Have you tried pausing it for 3 minutes then starting it back up? I think that method may work best. Give it time to preload the episode and you should be caught up. animecrazy.net gets a lot of traffic I am sure, which means that its going to reduce the bandwith you are able to recieve through them, as is megavideo. I know with mega I have had that issue and had to let it buffer, Ill ussually start it, pause as soon as the picture shows, or ad dissapears, go grab a drink and bag of chips, come back and watch.

Hope this is the issue, as it seems it may be if youtube is running fine. If not, it could be a codec problem, have you loaded any codecs since the problem started? Youtube has a lot of 3gp videos, while the other sites most likely run mpeg.

not really all the time.. i usually use my laptop after work. that's about 7 pm.. i actually let animecrazy load the video but it suddenly stops buffering. BTW, how can you check if it's a codec problem?

1. Any changes on your computer, before this started happening? New software installations, changes in Windows etc. ?

2. Have you tried watching videos from animecrazy.net using other internet browsers? Do they exhibit the same behavior or is it Chrome specific?

I don't think it is browser related as much as I think it may be just a bandwidth situation. What ISP and connection speed do you have?

Do you have any bandwidth limits? I know of a few ISP's that drop your speed after a certain level of bandwidth has been exceeded for the month, and I know of some ISP's that throttle certain traffic types during peak business hours which would be around the time you get off work I imagine.

Please go here: http://www.speedtest.net and perform a few tests and post the results today and tomorrow.
