I use a laptop as my main computer, with a wifi router 100 feet and 3 walls away. On some occasions the VIDEOS are choppy - never the stream, but pausing the video for 30 seconds then pressing play always helps. For streams, make sure you're using Internet Explorer for your browser. And yes, the live timing of FP1 was screwey last night.

I have exactly the same problem. The laptop I use has only a 64meg onboard video so that is the biggest problem. My sons PC dual core AMD 5600 has a ginormous video card and it is like watching tv. So it is the laptop it just can't decompress and deal with the stream. I need a new one but...$$$

There is so many factors that it could be. Nothing is a quick easy fix unless you have spam that can be removed.

A 64 mb video card should be stream video just fine at native resolution. To test out your hardware just put in a DVD or something and see how that looks. When watching the DVD if everything is fine then it is not your hardware, errr, your video hardware that is the issue. The problem lies somewhere between the source and your network card. Although when streaming there are other factors like browser, software, OS, RAM, etc.. I would suspect your connection first and to test this out do a speed test.

HERE (not sure how this works overseas) If you are "streaming" videos then I would think that you would need around 1.5 mb down for a smooth flow. If it's high quality you will probably need a bit more.

Clear up any spam that could be taking up bandwidth.

You should probably have at least 1-1.5 gigs of RAM, recommended 2.

Running IE7 with all the patches and fixes.

If I was streaming, I would be plugged directly into the cable, no wireless. Streaming wireless can be pretty crappy if you are running it over a crappy network card.

It could just be the source. MOTOGP.com has a crappy pipe out.

Got a new dsl speedtouch modem and voila great video....things degrade performance so slow sometimes you don't realize they are screwed until you try a new one. $130 though for something made in China by slave labour worth $1.29.

I use a laptop as my main machine, but use Mozilla Firefox with the MediaPlayerConnectivity add-on. Using the add-on I make it open Windows Media Player files with VLC (free from www.videolan.org/vlc/). When you click on the feed you get a little film icon rather than the video. Right click on that and select MediaPlayerConnectivity to launch the VLC window.

This stops all the problems with lag and choppiness that I used to get and it doesn't seem to buffer like media player which I found always ran about 30/40 seconds behind live timing, which is very annoying when watching quali.

Hope this helps.
