Eish. So how would it work with the MWEB Internet Addict package which is unshaped (512 & 4mbs lines respectively)?A 4Mbps line should be good enough to stream most (if not all) 480p videos live (without having to wait for it to buffer). There will always be buffering involved, however with a 4Mbps line and videos of resolutions less than 480p, the buffering should always be quicker than the video time.
I've based my information on http://community.avid.com/forums/t/63560.aspx, which advise people to use a bitrate of 1.5Mbps - 3Mbps for 480p videos.
Normal HDTV videos are 360p, so even a 2Mbps connection should be able to stream that live.
Of course, in reality, many uncapped packages are shaped and you might not always get the full line speed (which is 3.5Mbps if you take all the overheads in consideration).
There is already a thread for that....
