illiterate computer-user question

I just a cable modem service and I was all excited to see some U2 videos etc... from the u2.com site. Even though we have quicktime and mediadeck the stupid videos keep stopping. They download quickly, but they won't play very well. Any suggestions. Am I doing something wrong?

Seems like the video is trying to play before the whole thing downloads. In QuickTime or RealPlayer, there should be some sort of meter that indicates how far the download has progressed. QuickTime is always trying to play files before they're fully downloaded. Make sure the whole thing is ready before it plays.

is your computer fast enough?
can you play other video. if it's all choppy, sound and video, after being downloaded it could be any number of things: processor, memory(close anything else that's open that doesn't need to be), video card.

Welcome to the club. U2.com's videos only play if you know which spell to use. They don't work for most people. Sorry, love.

they work for me and i've done it from a few computers, pc's and mac's. a lot of their content is available via morpheus though.

whatever floats your boat really.
