Fix the streaming so that videos don't stop playing

Just fix the problem: Some videos just stop loading all together and will never load fully, refreshing/reloading sometimes works, sometimes trying to start the video after the point where it stopped works, but typically I just get frustrated and give up..

        "Just fix the problem" isn't very helpful. Recently I've had some issues with Firefox streaming older videos (which require me to re-encode that format), but in Chrome/Safari they all do work.

        Where are you streaming the videos from?

        I have a CDN where the videos are distributed around the world, but it requires first a connection from that region for the copy (a limitation of Amazon Cloudfront). If you find that you come back to a video later and it works, this might be the case.

        If you just can't get good streaming speeds from my CDN, then I'd suggest subscribing to the private RSS feed in iTunes to watch the videos. You can find this feed in your My Account page.
