I subscribe to mlb.tv, and watch a lot of baseball games live on the web. I was wondering if there was anything that I could do on my end to make the streaming smoother. The streaming this year has been really jerky, with a lot of pauses that can last for 3-5 seconds. I know a lot of it has to do with bandwidth (I have BellSouth's fastest DSL package), but I was wondering if there was anything I could do hardware wise to improve it. I have a Pentium 4, 1.8 Ghz, with 512 MB of RAM running XP Home SP2. 5 GB out of 19 Free. I believe I have a sound card, but I don't have a video card. I have asked some people who are more techie than I, and they have said that a video card wouldn't help me that much if at all. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could help me?
Try WebJay (webjay.com). It's more picky though, as you have to tell it what songs to play. It even has links to download songs. Last.fm is scary, like Pandora in that they track everything you listen to and read your mind.
