Painfully slow video downloads

    Guys the video content you have on your site are really awesome and great but the streaming & download speeds are terrible... I have seen a few threads with other users experiencing the same problem. Speedtest says I have a 8.42Mbps connection with 15ms ping (I am located in Sydney, Australia)... should be enough right? Do I need to change some config somewhere or some other settings to get a decent speed happening? Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks.

    Having the same issue for years, videos buffer, videos don't download. I can't watch anything on channel9. Unbelievable how they push me to look somewhere else. 

     

    Why can't they just use Youtube, why always re-inventing the wheel with something that doesn't work?

    +1 for Shrage.  The video streaming for Channel 9 has been extremely broken for years.  Very frustrating.
