Issue with buffering and playback speed with BBC Streampix online

Why is the BBC playback on streampix online so slow?  It is constanly buffering but only on BBC.  When I watch other video - the playback and buffering are seamless.  This only seems to be happening when I watch BBC.  Any suggestions?

Re: Issue with buffering and playback speed with BBC Streampix online

Hi, I use hotspot shield to watch bbc iplayer online.  It gives all of the up to date programs from the UK, you can even watch live.  It costs $4 approx per month but is worth it, it also works for ITV, STV and for other countries too.  You need to have a UK address in order to work around the restrictions but that is easy to do, just look something up online and watch away.
