Please can someone with a VF fibre connection who has the time and energy pay a visit to www.nos.nl (the Dutch public service broadcaster), go to an item with embedded video (indicate by a little icon) and play the clip, and post back with your experience.
I’m getting extensive buffering on these, to the extent that a 1.5 minute clip can take as long as 10 minutes to complete.
This has been happening for as long as I can remember, but I’m now fed up with this and first step in resolving it is to determine if it’s just me.
It happens on a hard-wired PC (as well as on wifi of course). I am on a 100/20 Vodafone (Chorus-delivered) fibre connection and have been for about 6 years. It is stable and reliable. Downloads, from e.g. Steam, are at near line-speed. YouTube, Google Play movies, etc. all stream HD flawlessly.
Also worth noting is that if I use the VPN built-in to the Opera Developer browser the video buffering is usually significantly less, sometimes I can even watch a clip uninterrupted this way.
