This is probably nothing that you can do anything about. The website is trying to send you more data than your internet connection can handle, so the video has to keep stopping and waiting for more data to come through.

Does the website offer the video in a lower resolution format? If so, try that. Or, if the option is available, try downloading the whole video to your hard drive, and then watch it from there.

I have since learnt a bit more about buffering,and have updated my flash player 9 and flash media server 3.
Having a lower resolution makes no difference to the download.
They would not allow a download to a hard drive,something to do with copywrite issures.
Not sure where I go from here. any ideas out there.? What is H.264 ? How do I get it.? all I know is that it is a dual buffering.as one buffer is used up the other one is buffering,or this to simple.?

The problem you are getting, as others have said, is that the Internet Connection is not fast enough to "Stream" this movie

Right Click on the Item you wish to View > Select "Save Target as" and save it to your Desktop > You should be able to view it there once it has fully downloaded.

As conigio says in 09.32 posting the site does not allow downloading

sea urchin.now have H.264, but I need to a new video card of 256 MB or higher plus a 24 bit sound card.
Perhaps I should call it a day and just play dvd.
Thanks to every one for your input.
