I have been having issues with the episodes freezing whenever I try to watch a show on hulu.com or abc,com and was wondering if there is something I need to download in order to watch shows on either site??

I have to pause it until I see the Buffer has completed loading. If all 4 of the little ovals are filled up, it usually runs without freezing.

I found out all I had to do was download something called "Hulu Desktop" and once I watched the episode through hulu desktop everything ran smoothly and no freezes.


Thanks for the feedback

He wasn't talking about what browser you use

Just FYI, one connects to the Internet via a modem of some type, not a web browser.

I use Firefox all the time to watch shows on Hulu and the only time I have issues is around 6-8pm, which is when our 6mbps U-Verse connection can slow down to almost snail-like levels. (our 6mbps AT&T DSL never did that, I sure miss it).

Right. To watch baseball on mlb.tv, I have to close all browsers, re-open a fresh Chrome, and log in. If I try to run anything else, even an idle browser, the stream keeps interrupting. Even when my speedtest shows a full 10M.

Well it sounds like mlb.tv is for watching on TV because it sounds like from all the things you have to do, you are making your internet experience kind of dull since you can't do anything else. I need to do something else besides viewing a video on the web
