Interrupted play when viewing video clips from msn home page?

My system: Vista Home Premium (build 6000)

2.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core

64 kilogyte primary memory cache

1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

198.4 gb free hard drive space

When viewing the video clips from the web the videos will stop or pause and take a while to finish playing.

I usually give up and close the web page. These are news items, interviews, etc.

Anyone else having this problem?

    Wow! Nice specs. But how about your Internet bandwidth though? Do you run on dial up or broadband? Do you run on wireless or wired connection? If it's broadband, are you running on more than 512 Kbps (bandwidth)?

    One may have a powerful computer, so to speak, but if the data or information arrives, via the Internet, very slowly possibly due to latency issues (delay from server to local machine), then in effect, the data is processed in a staggard manner. Remember, videos are sent through packets of information. One must have a very fast and reliable Internet connection also.

    I hope this sheds some light.
