Widespread Video Rebuffering

    Hi, I have recently encountered an issue testing my video streaming system
    (WMS9 w/ win2003). Some of my test users (30% of them) have been complaining
    that the video is constantly re-buffering, there are however some that do not
    experience any issue whatsoever.

    I checked the log files and the CPU and memory utilization levels were all
    below 20%, my bandwith usage was approaching 25% of my maximum. So I have
    all but eliminated those as issues.

    I have gone through and troubleshooted (if that is a word) with the users
    that are experiencing the issues. There is nothing different between their
    settings and the settings of the systems that ran without a hitch.

    I have read that it may be a port issue where, if the users don't have
    access to 554 or 1755, the connection is forced through 80 (or 8080) causing
    an overflow/bottleneck with all other web bandwidth being used on the
    network. My problem with that theory is that some of the users experiencing
    issues have successfully viewed the live streaming in the past.

    Are there any other known issues or might there be something that I am
    missing that may have caused this?

    I too have the same problems. If anyone could respond with some helpful
    info. that would be great. I have to buffer 60 sec worth of content and wait
    while it rebuffers for the next 60 sec. Its downright annoying, especially
    with a connection speed of 10 Mbps.
