Hello,
Does anyone else have this problem: I try to play videos/music with my windows media player 10, it plays fine then stops, thens starts again. at the bottom of the player I've noticed it loading--plays music, stops & thens loads again to play more music. Is this a modem problem, MTU, or computer problem? i have a windows Xp--service pack2.

Thank-You

If your downloading music/videos from the internet, or listening to streaming music/videos, and your playing them as you're downloading them, then it's normal. What's happening is that your playing the movie faster than it's being downloaded, so when it pauses, it means that it's only downloaded up to that part of the music/video. To get around this, you can start the download, then press pause on media player, and wait for it to fully download before pressing play. Once it's fully downloaded, it shouldn't pause then play then pause then play.

Hope it helps!

Actually what is happening is the data isn't coming in at a fast enough constant rate. The player is pausing (buffering) until enough data is recieved to continue playing. High traffic congestion or insufficient bandwidth (such as a dial-up connection) are the two most common reasons. On a high speed connection, it's rarely an issue unless the website doing the streaming is overloaded or just plain slow. You can change the way WMP handles buffering by changing to the UDP protocol but if it's just a slow connection, it will most likely just drop the data instead. lose-lose situation.
If you are on a high speed connection and experience this issue at every site, we may have a different problem here. Let us know
