I seem to connect to internet fine and go to site like huffingtonpost or youtube, but when I click to play a video- the place where the video will show "an error occurred. Please try again later". The video when it does play at times is very slow. Sometimes Pandora will stutter as well. What gives?

Most likely your connection is slow or your temporary internet files or cache is not being flushed out on a regular basis. Make sure your flash player and java are updated also. You can also removed cookies as well to check as they will be recreated the next time you visit certain websites.

Run a speedtest at SpeedTest.Net and post back the results.

That download speed is way too low to do any video or audio streaming. What speed does your ISP advertise for your plan? 0.13mb/s is almost as bad as dialup.

I seem to be able to play videos a little easier from internet explorer, so I ran the speed test there and got a 5Mps download speed there. Is that any good?

My link according to my isp I should be getting 5mps download and 512 upload. I just ran tuneup utilities.

I just updated my firefox to version 13 and that seems to have fixed the video issue. Thank you for the help.
