Hi,
I'm having real problems watching streamed video from thedailyshow.com this week.  I get 2 seconds of video, then a 5 second pause, 2 seconds video etc.    I normally get a few pauses in the video, but this week it is so bad it is just unwatchable.

I've always assumed the pauses were something I just had to put up will, but with this week being so bad I asked a friend from work to try the site from home to see if he had the same problem watching videos.  He tried it and had no problems at all playing video.  

So now I'm starting to think there might be a problem with my internet connection or PC.  My internet connection is vodafone ADSL (outside the Red network), and my friend has TelstraClear cable.  Youtube plays video fine on my PC.  Could this be an ISP issue?  Some sort of caching issue?

Anyway, I thought I might contract Vodafone tech support and see it they could be of any help, but before I do that I just wanted to know if the thedailyshow.com was working for anyone out there on Vodafone ADSL?

Thanks in advance,
Greg
