Hey everyone!

I am trying to watch the olympics through an official stream on NBC website. The issue is that even though i have a 20 mbps connection, the stream lags (especially if I put it to 1080p or even 720p).

What i was wondering is if some type of software existed that delayed an incoming stream on purpose for lets say 5-10 seconds so that there would be no buffering or pauses in watching live video. Anyone know anything like that ?

It's not super smooth for me either, probably just the streaming. Runs OK but has a split second delay every so often.

Your computer already buffers a bit, the player used controls this. You can right-click on the video and allow Flash to use more of the local drive storage. The default is 100k I think.
