    I have been trying to watch the We Are One concert at:
    for days. The problem: the audio breaks up. It is the most annoying thing imaginable. It sounds like the audio skips every other frame like you are listening to someone across the platform as a train goes by, catching their words between the cars. I upgraded to QuickTime Pro and updated all software thinking this would solve my problem but no, the sound is the same.

    I am connected via DSL through Airport. I am on a 24" iMac 2.8 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB SDRAM.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Not really my area, but the first thing I would do would be to look at the amount of the buffer size you have allocated to streaming in the Quicktime preferences. I would then increase this so that you get a lot more of the stream buffered into memory before you start watching it.

    It could be their servers tho.

    thanks, Poncho

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to test your solution as HBO has taken down the concert, they only left it up for a week. I have no problem with other videos.
