    As I had mentioned before is regarding the streaming video.  While I do have an issue with the pages within the site, my biggest problem is with the video themselves.  A windows mobile 5 device has a Media Player 10 compatible media player so it qualfies for the "Plays for Sure" moniker but when plays for sure only plays at a crippled bitrate, I am not too impressed. 

    From what I can gather the streaming server detects that I am running a protable device and scales the quality down.  The interesting thing is that I set an option in the Windows Media player to say that I am a 1 Mbps connection and I turned off the "Detect connection speed" but still the video comes to me at a reduced bit rate.
