    4MBPS internet connection

    When playing streaming videos from BBC iPlayer, it keeps stopping
    (animated circle) as if it's buffering or caching.

    Have tried increasing my temp file space to 250MB (50 - 250 recommended)
    and also clearing temp files regularly.

    Is there another setting I'm missing or is the recommended temp file
    setting too low when streaming?

    For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down
    in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived
    it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which
    are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely
    impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas
    how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the
    bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points
    of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of
    dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem,
    is but a dream within a dream.
