BBC iplayer problem


[link to this post]
 
My download speed about 11 to 13 meg and upload about .7 to .9 meg. However the BBC iplayer tells me that the speed is not enough for streaming ( transmission is interrupted frequently). My question is if I install the Iplayer would the streaming improve. I do not wish to download the programs unless I have no alternative.

I get the same problem if I try to watch HD content. Standard definition is generally OK with my connection (which is about the same speed as yours.) I have always assumed that the problem is caused by throttling.

'I have no wisdom,' he told her.
'Your experiences, then?'
