    Awesome! I need some more 1080p content to show off my monitor :D

    Edit: The sample video uses about 70-80% of my CPU. Once it's finished it drops down to 2-10%.

    Great news for YouTube then. Although I'm not much of a YouTubian myself, this will be great for others.

    I wish my internet was that fast.

    But then again, I wouldn't need internet that fast for anything else, though. I'm not much of a gamer, and I usually let any large downloads that I'm doing run overnight or while I'm at school.

    What CPU do you have? It only uses 10% of my CPU here.

    Buffer it! :biggrin:

    Dude, do you live in Japan, China or South Korea? That's crazy fast! :eek4:

    I don't think it's worth buffering a three-minute video for ten minutes just to watch it in 1080p. -__-

    I live in India. This is my university connection. I live inside the university. We have 24hrs access to it.

    We have 3 connections 60mbps, 100mbps and 1gbps connections

    General browsing I use 60 and 100 connections and when downloading i use the 1gbps connection. :)

    Is there a reason why you guys have three different speeds of connections? And wouldn't everyone just want to use the faster one?

    different connections from different ISPs. So if anyone is down then we don't have to stop our work right.

    I use all 3 connections. all connections are configured to 3 different browsers.

    Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2.4GHz. Also, I have a 6MB/s connection, and the video buffers at exactly the same speed as it plays.

    That would explain it. Crazy stuff you guys have going there. The network must be pretty well built in that case too.

    Yup. You are right. The network is built in such a way that they can monitor any one and we have some restrictions too in using it.

    :)

    I tested the connection just now here is the result

    I had to wait for the video to buffer a lot before watching it: [​IMG] I used to have more...
