Problems with buffering...

By Unkn0wn F0rces ·
While watching videos on youtube and other video sites I find that I have to either watch a few seconds of video and wait and then repeat; Or I can sit and wait a long time to let the entire video load. Is this because my ISP is throttling my internet? Is there anything that I can do to improve upon this issue?

Some thougths....

Stop looking at PORN lol.. Just playing around..

I would try a couple things, download: Sypbot S&amp or Malwarebytes, CCleaner, update your AV. If you dont have an AV, search for AVG free or Avast.

Run the Anti-Spyware/malware, run CCleaner to clean up your temp files, and (at your own risk) clean up your registry.... for starters...

When you get a clean bill of health I would try then defrag your HDD and run a checkdisk...

If its still not streaming fast I would try updating your GFX drivers.

You can also test your bandwidth by going to http:\\Speedtest.net, but if you have spyware or other rouge apps running in the background you speeds will slower than what it should be. So I would run a speed test, do all the maintance, then run the speed test again to see if anything helped.

Post up if you have any questions/results!

Yep it really sounds like some severe infections here

What wasn't said above was to run the scans from Spy Bot and Malware Bytes in Safe Mode to clean up more of the infections and run them several times till the system is either clean or you are unable to remove something.

As for the Video it is available in the Temp Internet Folder if you are using IE.

Left Click on Tools, Internet Options, Settings in the Browsing History Section of the Window that opens and then finally View Files. Look for a FLV File and that will be the Video that you have just watched which you can copy to another folder if you want to save it or just delete it.

You'll need a FLV Player so you can use this one

You really need to make sure that you system is clean first though.

Welcome to my world

ninety percent of online videos that I watch have to be run through again before I can play them and watch them. I let TROLOV run through and collect it from the Temp files like Col suggested. Install the latest codecs and media player will pick up .flv files.

Download K-Lite Codec Pack
