Sounds like your connection is too slow. If playing a movie or audio file
can outrun the incoming stream, it will try to cache whatever it needs to
prevent it from stopping midstream, i.e., if your connection is slow
(dialup), that may mean 1/2 or more of the file must be buffered in cache
first (depending on size).

Try reducing the window size (rect) of the player and see what happens.
