HELP! Maybe somebody has a suggestion here for a technodoofus such as myself. I can�t watch videos on my home computer. They start to download, but the typical experience is that if a YouTube clip is, say, 4:16 seconds, the little bar that tells you how much of the clip has downloaded gets about one-third of the way across the screen and stops, and so with very rare exceptions I can�t ever see more than about 1:30 of any video clip. A call to my ISP was other-than-fruitful; the person told me I already had their fastest broadband stuff.

Has anyone out there successfully stared down this problem? Many thanks.
