tv on the PC

Specs: Windows XP
What can I do to improve streaming videos. Why do newscasts, 1/2 shows, and cartoons come in clear as a bell. Or come in without stuttering with stop action?
Thank you

At lot depends on the source.

What is the bit rate compared to those that you can receive fine?

One thing that will have an effect is the load on the server. If it is a popular server and you are viewing at peak times then that would explain why you can get some and not others.

There probably not a lot you can do about it as the deciding factor is the Internet connection unless you get a faster Internet connection. But that sill wont help with a loaded server.

Thank you Stuart. That makes good sense. I've tried all evening
downloading, everything from GOM player to VLC and Codec
packs. Nothing has helped. Sometimes Window's Media player
kicks in and at other times, Real Player. I think you are right.

The internet is not designed to deliver a guaranteed high speed access, like which is required for television, so you will never get a good stream of video to your computer. To that, you mus than also add that your computer may have issues processing the image, even temporarily, which would mess up the complete stream, resulting in large loss of streaming. My advice, don't try it on any computer, it is not made for it, it will never work correctly.
