Hello guys.

I used to have a 10mb connection with a crappy ISP, but that was enough to watch 1080+ streams without any form of lag.

But few weeks ago I changed my ISP and got a 35mb connection, where everything works fine, it's constant, no spikes and stuff, now I'm able to watch 1080p videos on youtube without loading, which I wasn't able before.

Ok, now with the scenario set, my problem is the following, the first 2 or 3 days it was okay and I was able to watch streams perfectly, but now they stutters the video, while the audio stays fine, and it seems to do that on every quality I set it on.

Is there anyway to solve it?

Thanks guys.

This sounds like a streamer side issue. Try another stream when the one you are watching is stuttering.

Tried it, and every single one lags for me. Twitch.tv and own3d.tv.

And by the way, the youtube's stream for Rock in Rio is just fine, no stuttering at all.

Then it's a performance problem. What changes have you made? I'm having problems with the recent Flash update myself.

some ISPs don't like video stream traffic so they reduce the bandwidth for it.

My internet works perfectly while playing, no spikes at all.

Im running the tests right now, I'll try to run all of them. Is there a specific one?

For the shaping of traffic, on the flash bit (youtube and I guess streams?)

There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your FlashVideo downloads. In our tests, downloads using control flows achieved up to 826 Kbps while downloads using FlashVideo achieved up to 1096 Kbps.

There is no indication that your ISP rate limits downloads on port 8080 or 48713. In our tests, downloads on port 8080 achieved up to 1096 Kbps while downloads on port 48713 achieved up to 1184 Kbps.

Flash is probably the culprit here. Youtube with their resources can optimize their stream in reasonable time, but everyone else, not a chance.

For some weird reason, I decided to try it on the wireless connection and no stutter at all...

It's probably the cable right? Is there any chance that the problem is on my modem itself?
