I have two computers, a Windows 7 box and a Windows 8 box. I have a Verizon FIOS connection, the 50/25 level.
On the Windows 7 box speedtests I run look normal.
On the Windows 8 box speedtests I run look normal.
On the Windows 7 box, high def high speed streams play normally.
On the Windows 8 box, high def high speed streams are capped at 10 megs a second.
This has not been a problem before: Translation: I haven't noticed this before.
Now I am noticing it. Certain foreign countries are starting to use stream speeds in excess of 10 megs a second. For example, take a look at the clip at »media-us.media.s-mdstrm.com/v/52 ··· de27f6a9
. If you put that link into Windows Media Player (assuming the access token still works; I don't know if they're time-limited, but this clip is on the Teatro Municipal de Santiago web site if this URL doesn't work), it will tell you that the clip plays back at 28 megs a second.
That clip works fine on my Windows 7 box.
It plays with constant buffering (for obvious reasons) on my Windows 8 box.
What's wrong on my Windows 8 box?
Why is it capped at 10 megs a second (something I clearly see on my Rokario Bandwidth Meter)?
How can I fix this?
