Specs: Windows XP
I have a lot of stops and starts in the football games I am streaming on Veetle. It has been suggested that my ping rate might be too high. How do I find out if this is the case and how do I lower it if it is. PS.

What browser are you using? I find that video streams are better in IE than Firefox.

I don't understand how ping has anything to do with the stream. I would think that memory & swap space would be more relevant. I would run msconfig, go to startup & uncheck everything that you don't need to load at startup. Unchecking it doesn't delete it. It's still there for when you want it. Then I would check the virtual memory setting.

Ping is used for determining the throughput rate. It is assumed the quicker the ping the quicker the data transfer.

A better way of finding out this information is to go to one of the many speed tests sites. Find a server in the town you were streaming the video from, and then compare the test results with what you are paying for.

For an accurate picture of your bandwidth do the tests at different times of the day but to the same server you first used.

A defragged hard drive and plenty of free space helps drive performance.

Google tcpoptimizer. I have had good results with the program.

Alas, I have tried most of the suggestions including downloading the TCPoptimizer. My ping rate ended up being 85 and the download speed was 87. I defragged my hard drive, stopped a number of programs from loading at startup and as a result. . the streaming is even worse than before. I manage to see about 20 seconds of the ball game before it freezes up. I'm to the point that I think I'll go to the sports bar next weekend to watch the games. Thanks to all for the suggestions.

download 87kbytes?

What are you paying for? I would be on the phone to my provider instantly if I saw those stats. They would be testing the lines and replacing the modem.

Actually, I'm on vacation in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. Hopefully, this problem will disappear when I return to the USA..

Do you think perhaps that information would have been helpful at the beginning?
