For some reason my reasonably good (2.8 GHz C2D) computer is having trouble buffering flash videos, taking a few minutes to buffer even a <2 minute flash video off youtube/gametrailers/etc. I'm pretty sure the problem is with flash, because I'm experiencing similar (slow) speeds in Firefox, IE, and even a fresh install of chrome. I'm pretty sure it's not the connection either, because one of the older P4s on the same network is able to load the same video at the same time in like 10 seconds vs the few minutes I mentioned before.
I tried uninstalling, rebooting, and reinstalling the newest version of flash from Adobe's site (10.1.53), which helped a little, but it's still painfully slow (as in, like a quarter of the speed of the video). Anyone have any other ideas?
