Problems with streams on my computer

Although I have a fast connection streaming seems to be a big problem. When I want to listen some streaming music it streams very slow and causes lags. 30 mbps should be able to download one mp3 song in 4 seconds but it looks like it takes minutes. Who knows a solution? I am using firefox, both the current version as the beta version.

choose another site, you are downloading music from a slow server. i tunes, torrents, winamp are fast servers. also try ovguide.com

The site was grooveshark. But on youtube the same happens as well. So it doesn't really depend on the site itself...

i just tried the site, no problem, it plays outright after search. No lagging.. Install Tuneup Utilities 2009 trial version from cnet.com. (Dont use the 2010 version just 2009 only) this will reconfigure your computer to run smooth.

I have the newest advanced system optimizer, which is better according to toptenreviews.com, ran it multiple times, yet it is as slow as the snails.

try using it again without downloading anything.. sometimes this downloads will take out some of your bandwidth thus making your streaming slower.. if you are not downloading anything... maybe it's internet provider..

I am not downloading anything even if I'd download anything it wouldn't influence my connection enough to make streaming that slow. ;)
