NSV setting optimizations

i am on dsl 512kb and whenever i watch a movie it loads for 20 secs and plays for 5 secs and i cant watch the movie in a constant smooth slow and is choppy how can i fix it what settings should i use 2 optimize it and make it smoother/faster

i just want it 2 load it all at once if possible instead of every 5 seconds...

buffer size 100 100
prebuffer at start 100 100
rebufferon underun 100 100

Does this happen to all video streams or just one stream in particular ?

some are ok and others are worse but very few actually run smoothly only if its low quality bitrate etc....like 50

and some are very bad pauses so often u cant even make out the words or hear the sound cause of the frequent pauses thats why i was wondering if there was a way 2 load it all at once so doesnt need 2 pause to buffer etc

You cant download a entire stream before watching it.
Streaming is a continious process.

Some of the streams on winamp tv will buffer for any one watching. The broadcaster is exceeding his bandwidth ability or due to poor network propagation conditions.

You should also double check your actual dsl line speed.
Just because a company claims you have 512 download speed doesnt necessarily guarantee it.

You could also increase your pre-buffer - and see if that helps.

You can test your line speed at these websites :
