Default watching the BBC news

Now I am on broadband I wanted to watch the BBC news. I used Windows Media player as the Real player didn't seem to to work, seems you have a choice with the BBC.

I got buffering all the time and the picture just stopped and started. I thought with broadband it will be a smooth running programme with no intermittent buffering

I did a speed test on the BBC and it said 352K. No idea what that means but I was only able to get 1 MB? (think that's what is was) instead of 2 MB as my line wasn't good enough.

When I was on dial up it was like this, thought it would be better.

Do you have the latest version of WMP...I think its V10 ?

Do you have a separate graphics card or is it incorporated into the Motherboard ?
If you can keep your head when those around are losing theirs, maybe you just don't understand the situation.........
