Hello!

Everytime I watch videos, it seems to stop at about an episode length maybe a little longer then it stops suddenly, won't resume till i refresh page but even then it plays for about 10 seconds and stops again. If I leave it where it stopped for a bit and refresh it starts to play again which I find odd.

Currently, I'm watching Gundam 00, not sure if it's just that series as I haven't tested other series yet due to work.

I've had this issue for about 3 days and have tried every little possible thing I could think of as well as some of the threads I have found around the forum and the official troubleshooting thread as well.

I've done the following..

Uninstalled Flash --> Reinstalled Flash --> Cleared the Flash cache
Uninstalled my wireless drivers (out of a hunch since it seemed to time up with my driver update) and updated drivers to no avail, so it wasn't drivers.
"Obliterated" browser cache, everything from "the beginning of time"
Tried with Firefox and IE, still stops. (Using Chrome)
Tested connection speed and I'm always at a steady 34-36mp/s
Tried OpenDNS, but due to my router/modem type it won't allow me to change the DNS under my routers browser configuration.

Is there anything to help me alleviate this issue? Any information would be great.

Thanks




Edit: Sorry missed a post in the troubleshooting thread. This may be the problem, but I'm not sure.

If you change the DNS on the computer itself, it does not matter what the DNS setting in the router is. The setting in the router is used only if the computer is set to obtain the DNS address automatically.

I've tried that as well and it did not work, OpenDNS didn't recognize that i was using it's servers.

Can you explain in more detail what you meant be that?

Do you mean your internet still function, but when you went tested it with any of the three links on the following page, they didn't respond as expected?:

It appears you are using Comcast as your ISP. If that is correct, AFAIK, they do not intercept DNS calls.

Assuming you are running Windows, you may want to go to your Internet Options in the Control Panel, click on the Connections tab, click on the LAN settings button, and make certain "Use a proxy server..." is not checked.
