    Are you on dialup or broadband (high speed)?

    Sounds to me that if you have broadband internet, you need to install flip4mac. It's my understanding that a lot of web movies are in wmv format, and perhaps the flash player can't convert it fast enough to show you? Not sure. In any event, I've never had a problem with a skipping movie, and I have flip4mac installed.

    On the other hand, you could try changing the flash and quicktime options to download the full movie before playing, instead of having a 'streaming' environment...your connection to the server may just be so bad that your buffer is playing out faster than your connection can download the video.
