As a former 56k user I understand your predicament You see, the speed of your audio/video stream is entirely dependant on the speed of your connection, in your case a 56k modem with the maximum (but rarely reached) speed of 5.6 kilobytes per second Most streams require more bandwith than that If you are heavily into streaming media consider getting a broadband connection, a good place to check it out is: http://www.dslreports.com/

Hope this helps.
