my internet speed can't handle 480p or 720p so is there any way to load videos as if they were on youtube?
i mean i open a video, pause it let it load for hours and it will still freeze after a minute or two... its as if the hours of loading made no difference.
i let a video load for 2 min and I get almost the same time as if I loaded if for hours.
i have tried pausing a video at 720p and letting it load for 6 hours but when i came back the video doesn't work at all.
so is there a way to stream videos like on youtube? there is almost no point in having a membership if i am stuck on SD.
is letting a video load supposed to help or is that how the website is designed?

Due to legal reasons, we are only able to allow a few minutes to be loaded in advance. So you won't be able to pause and download the entire video to your computer's cache.

So... I've been sitting and staring into the black void waiting for Fairy Tail to load all this time for nothing!? -cries-

aw I was doing the same thing. Waiting for videos to load so there wouldn't be a stop in playback. I have DSL, but watching 720p videos is a pain, 480p is a bit better.

Like dinho said there's almost no point in having a membership, since we can't even watch HD streams.

Be nice if something could be worked out... as it stands it's a big annoyance.
