    I have a slow internet connection at the moment (getting an upgrade to fiber) and it is not fast enough to load a 720p hd video i want to watch it in 480p but it always watches it in HD. it is so slow! i haven't gotten watch a single video that is available in HD

    Example: Streaming video right now for about a minute only downloaded 17 seconds of a 10 minute video

    i have signed up for the html 5 video beta and yet they still load from flash

    Please Register or Log in to view images
