    I have Apple TV2 jailbroken and installed Icefilms add-on on XBMC.

    Apple TV2 4.4.4
    XBMC 11.0 Eden Beta 3
    Icefilms 1.0.25

    I tried to play any video on icefilms, movie or tv series, it takes a lot of time to buffer, no matter what the source is.

    I cannot blame it on the wifi / internet connection because I watch netflix, hulu without any issue. I know this is not the same streaming like it is from those servers, but I do not see any issue with my internet though.

    Shouldn't it be faster? Am I supposed to do any special settings?

    Any help is greatly appreciated !

    Ice film buffer

    Icefilm content uses Rapidshare. Middle of this month (Feb) they started to throttle download speeds (30kbs MAX) unless you have a rapid pro account setup with them. Video streaming, heck even music streams impossible at that speed.

    Basically cost you $13.00 and some change PER MONTH for a pro account.

    Google Icefilm, and go to their forums. All kinds of posts regarding this there.
