So occasionally, Hulu and Netflix streaming stutters for me on my Dell Laptop. Hulu does it more often, but Netflix has a problem when there is a lot of action on the screen. I'm trying to figure out the problem. I think it could either be that my video card isn't up to snuff, or my internet connection isn't fast enough. I have DSL from AT&T. Not the fastest one they offered, I think it was the slower one. My laptop is an Inspiron 9100. It's a desktop replacement laptop with its own video card, a Mobility Radeon 9700. However, that video card runs a 1680 x 1050 display. So I'm trying to figure out what the problem is. I was thinking about buying a small desktop to use as a HTPC, and one of the biggest things i'll be doing on it would be Hulu and Netflix. But if my internet isn't fast enough it will be silly to do that only to have stuttering. Cause I seriously hate stuttering. But upgrading the DSL probably means another 2 yr contract which i don't want.
