Hello,
I have been having trouble watching any videos on the web. They are really choppy. Also, if the video is wmp it takes a long time to load. Can I fix this?

Thanks a bunch!
Nicole

Could be your internet download speed is too slow for smooth online playback. You need a download speed of around at least 130 kilobytes/second (that relates to a bandwidth of 1Mbit) to avoid constant 'buffering' and pauses. So if your max bandwidth is only 512kbits/sec (download speed = 64kbytes/sec) you will get choppy video playback if it's a high quality (large size) video.
