i have an old PC with 10/100 lan interface and Hitachi HDD 164GB with IDE interface. i connected 40Mb internt line to this PC. when i am trying to watch live video stream from the internet i am having a lot of buffering. is it possible that my HDD write speed is slower than my internet speed and it cause a buffering?
When watching videos on the internet they will get buffered into your RAM. This is a lot faster than your HDD. I think that either your ISP or the server you are connecting to is causing the lower speed you recognize as it buffers a lot.
