    I don't have any problem with gamespot video, but somehow all ign video loads too slow..I have to buffer every single minute.
    Is this just for me?

    It seems a little slower than most places, but it usually doesn't have to buffer.....

    I noticed that too. Problem solved by watching the exact same video on
    Youtube.

    IGNs video are of better quality to begin with so its understandable that it takes time to buffer.

    Well my internet is fast. Download speed is 1mbps... But maybe location is the problem, right? Right now I am in Asia. I'll try when I go back to my home in US if it streams slow too there.

    Oh my mistake.. I thought 10000kb=1mb...(stupid)
    But still, isn't 1mb fast enough?
    If I download a file from really slow slow site then it's around 700kbps.
    Average 4mbps...
    But where I download Divx movies has fastest speed which is usually 9500kbps.

    8 bits = 1 byte
    1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
    1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
    1024 megabyte = 1 gigabyte

    ADSL speeds are measured in kilobits not kilobytes.

    1024 kilobits per second = 128 kilobytes per second

    I know

    8 bits = 1 byte
    1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
    1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
    1024 megabyte = 1 gigabyte

    but I didn't knew they were measured in kilobits..
    But my internet is VDSL, not ADSL

    You definitely seem to know more than I do, so I don't doubt your saying that DSLs are measured in kilobits.
    Maybe it goes little bit different here in Asia.. Of course they'll measure it in kilobits officialy(This is a mere assumption since I know almost nothing of this kind of thing..) but when they make commercials or something they do it in kilobyte or megabyte just to make sure everyone understands it without getting confused. :)

    In a commercial they will almost surely use megabits because it will make it sound faster.
