T61P Troubles, YouTube video streaming

[ Edited ]

I am not sure what happens. I am running my T61P approaching the internet via a ZyXEL P-334WT 802.11g Wireless Broadband Router, running 36 - 48 Mbps actual speed (max. 64 Mbps due to the manufacturer). The ZyXEL box is connected to a broadband modem and a 20 Mbit line.

 

So why do I experience problems running a YouTube video - it stalls all the time and even if it is not HD?

 

I will stop my post here for now but please ask for more information - as I need guidance on where to look. After this text please find some confirguration information from my T61P.

 

Kind regards

Per

I have updated my Flash Player and  am still running IE V8. The problem seems to be that as streaming it is downloading very slowly - slower that it playes and it maskes it stall / freeze.

 

Right now I am downloading the Firefox browser and then i shall test in that one as well.

 

Thanks for your feedback.

Re: T61P Troubles, YouTube video streaming

There are some quirks with the new IE V8, because Microsoft try to be both Firefox and IE at the same time with the new browser.

iPhone works but not Firefox: T61P Troubles, YouTube video streaming

It seems to run better in Firefox but not as expected with the communication set-up and speeds. Still the video stalls but now a fewer times than in IE.

 

Another funny story is that if I run it on my iPhone Safari browser utilizing the very same wireless network, it runs perfectly - in HD, too! Therefore I suspect this to be a HW or browser issue.

 

With my configuration the videos should be able to run without problems - but unfortunately I have not been able to solve the issue, yet!

 

Kind regards

When checking the player preferences: "You have version 10,0,22,87 installed". 

 

I have checked my computer's network speed. Download speed: 6.9 Mbit - upload speed: 0.7 Mbit,

Re: iPhone works but not Firefox: T61P Troubles, YouTube video streaming

you could try to increase your memory cache on the flashplayer to say 10 mb or something.

right click on your flash player, and there is the property, under property there should be a facilitate that allows you to increase the memory.
