    If I am trying to watch YouTube for Live whatever from WhiteHouse.gov, the
    audio pauses intermittantly. I have IE8 on XP with a DSL 1.5mb. What is
    wrong?
    Thanks

    If it's anything like my experience with Youtube, it's their high traffic
    rate. Streaming audio and video relies on plenty on available bandwidth.
    Your 1.5mb will be an issue if you're doing anything else that uses up
    download bandwidth, and if you go on Youtube when it's busy then you'll get
    problems too. I've got 8Mbps ADSL at home, and in the evenings (I'm in the
    UK) trying to watch a video on Youtube is pretty much a waste of time - what
    with the neighbours firing up their connections and playing games, watching
    videos, etc, combined with traffic on Youtube building up rapidly as all the
    Americans wake up and start watching stuff, I'm lucky if I can get more than
    around 10kbps from Youtube at times. That's about the point I give up and
    find something more constructive to do :)

    With the amount of detail you provided, it's anyone's guess.
