Could be your internet connection isn't fast enough.

The Internet is definitely fine on my part. Reboot your router. That will usually solve all your Net problems.

That's not bad. What kind of connection do you have? Service? Most broadband cable internet is like 5Mbps. If the problem still exist, it might be on their end (the website's server).

What site is the video hosted on? Maybe there are a lot of people on their server, also make sure you haven't got anything else using your internet too, as that will have an effect on how video plays too.

EDIT: I have 4mb Cable broadband and most videos play fine for me.

your specs are quite slow, I'm guesing its your processor, I'm using a intel celeron 900mhz, 256mb ram, and intel intigrated graphics and videos run fine, so thats why I think its your processor, what about the other computer in your sig will the videos play on that?

Just tried the video and it lags a bit on mine so could be their web server. I will try it on my laptop (which is more powerful) tomorrow and see how it plays.
