Is it just me or is this the worst server ever? I have a cable connection and I still cant watch most of the videos even when I download the lower quality ones. Very frustrating when it stops to "buffer" every 5 seconds.

I have a T-1, and it seems their connection isn't great, but the bigger problem is the way the video files are implemented. The QT's aren't set right so they don't start to play when it has enough data to finish downloading before you finish viewing (i.e., you can't watch until the entire file is downloaded). The Windows Media files aren't on a streaming server, so there isn't a server talking with your client to adjust for bandwidth issues, giving you the constant buffering.

I don't know whats up with the server the videos are hosted on today (not the same server as the main site). If its going slow for you, I recommend trying again later.
