    Hi!
    I was wondering.
    Since my internet connection isn't that fast, is there a way to increase the browser's buffer for video so that it loads the entire video (or a large chunk) and then I can watch it without interruptions?

    Currently I wait for the video buffer to fill as far as it goes (it's only worth a few seconds of video) and I am constantly interrupted by the "video buffering" message. Since I can't increase the speed of my connection I thought that increasing the amount of video data that gets buffered would give me a better viewing experience.

    Is anything of that sorts remotely possible or is there an easy fix?
    Thanks!

    With what app? Normally, once the video starts loading, you can just pause it and let it load for a few minutes.

    This happens to me when using the web browser.
    If I pause it and let it load, it only loads a few seconds worth and stops until I press play again. (Using Megavideo).
    Youtube seems to work better.
