My Question or Issue
I'm having issues with playback of a video podcast. My internet wont support whatever the default resolution is, and I get a constant buffering because of this. This makes following the audio extremely difficult, as it is a constant pause for the video component to catch up, and this is often mid word. I could really get by with an option to include/exclude the video entirely. Best case scenario would be to control the resolution. I watch livestreams on other services often, and know for a fact that the video will buffer at 720 or above. I would rather have video at reduced quality (480 works fine at most times) or an option to not display the video at all, and only have the audio component. Either of these could be added at the client portion, so each user could control it as they wished.
I have aDSL, advertised @ 6Mbps/600Kbps. Actual data rates are lower.
