    I believe this is where hardware matters comes in (as opposed to others claiming that hardware doesn't matter)... I also experiencing in some sites, specifically sites streaming HD, that my PB is constantly stopping and buffering... while my laptop (i7) and other tablet (having a quad-core CPU & more RAMs) stream it easily... the same site, the same movie, connected with the same router - they should have the same output, right?... unless, there are other factors to be considered such as the OS, the speed & number of the processor and the RAM... and on that matter, like OS, hardware matters... a lot...

    And that "matter of time" is most likely "later this year"... according to Alec Saunders...

    I do this about everyday. Anyone have a clue if there's a "Best channel" for my linksys E3000 router? Although my PC is wireless as well so I'm not sure if channels are important to worry about

    I recommend memory eater for the playbook. Instead of restarting tbe pb it will give you all your RAM back which is usually around 610 mb after restarting the pb.

    I, too, regularly stream on my PB, especially from Amazon Instant Video and don't have any issues.

    wouldn't a manual backup save them??? just make sure to check ALL the boxes to do a complete backup,,, & plan on leaving it there for a while,,, i think my last one was 10 or 12 gigs & it took about 45 mins or more...

    mine has about 625MB w/ nothing running,,, i've had 4 games & 1 webpage running & had 80MB left,,, 1 game running uses 100MB +/-...

    Is your PC also using only WiFi like the PlayBook? WiFi connections can be horridly inconsistent in bandwidth. For example you might have a lot of neighbors with APs that are interfering, etc. Not to mention some consumer level access points (routers with APs in them) are just plan bad. Just a thought.

    if you wanna do a "hard reset", which is like a battery pull, hold vol+/power button for a 5 seconds after power options window closes,,, release power/vol+,,, playbook should reboot on it's own,,, you'll know if red light comes on without you doing anything more,,, i do it a couple times a week,,, some people do it less often...

    Default Re: Playbook is worthless for streaming

    youtube has never been a problem for me either. I watch tv shows on projectfree.tv (don't say pirate I won't listen) and the sites they link to do not stream as well on pb as they do on desktop. work for about 3 mins and the buffer infinately.
    only way to fix is to refresh and seek to the part you were before.

    annoying. I figure its the sites because all pb browsers behave the same. sb+ will freeze instead of buffer.

    that is my problem with streaming. just a minor annoyance though since I use my pb for so much more.

    depends on the WIFI connecting
    when I want to stream i usually reboot before and have no other program running

    In my gym:
    Al Jazeerah live TV works well, CNN, FOX, MSNBC does a lot of spooling and stop
    I watch some euroland tv station, work pretty well by they broadcast on 480p or less
    U tube worl mostly until 480p, no 720

    Yahoo webcast work pretty well and I hook it up to my large TV at home, I have a 20 mb internet connection there
    Airport lounges, airport and hotel lobbies you can forget, too many people use WIFI, so do inside airplanes, they are only good for emailing and web browsing

    I stream stuff all the time. I sometimes have buffering problems but that's the exception not the rule.

    I stream from the nhl game center on their website all the time without any issues...it takes a few seconds 10-15 to buffer and get all "happy" on the screen, but it works just fine for me....
