Must say that last night the videos I watched (all two of them) buffered just enough to keep pace with watching

Not even sure that the buffer bar is moving today. Is this happening to people not using the $5 addon?




this is a slap in the face!

Sigh. Back to the point of the addon makes no difference as the server which you download from is all distributed via DNS.

Excuse me if this has already been covered and my eye are deceiving me but is this issue apparent for both ADSL and VDSL users?

I am in the process of switching to Snap for VDSL so I would like to see exactly what's up here before I pay upfront.

its for adsl users but im sure vdsl is also effected, if they cant deliver fast speeds on adsl from the cached server then vdsl will have the same outcome.

I recently purchased SPEEDBit Video Accelerator and now 1080p videos stream at 1.6MBps (13.25Mbps). No more buffing. Has made things much more pleasant on You Tube.

If those that are experiencing the issue PM Ralph with your account number / username. There is no use saying you're effected by it if Snap! dont know who you are and you account details.
