When trying to play a video online, windows media player (default player) buffers every 10 seconds for like a minute through out the video. Its getting annoying. Is there anyway I can make the buffering stop or go quicker so its not doing it every 10 seconds? I am using Windows Media Player 11.
Thanks in advanced

wmp 11 by default uses "default" buffering. This is based on your network speed. The slower you are, the more often it has to buffer. To change this, go to tools, options and click on the peformance tab. Under Network Buffering you can manually set your buffer rate. You can also manually specify your network connection.
