So my upload speed is pretty pethetic. I stream movies on Veetle.com, but my upload speed is nowhere near as fast as it should be.

I ran a few speed tests on speedtest.net and capped my download speed at 19mb/s & upload speed at 0.48mb/s. Does anybody know any way I can boost my upload speed?

Could try using a different browser and checking any software that might be using an auto update to see if its cutting in at all and the firewall would be a good place to check, thats all i can think of other than altering any connections and such.
I would try a few different browsers ive noticed firefox has been going down hill with each update recently its becoming a mess.

What is your max upload speed for your broadband package?

I'm on 20MB down and only 500kbs up, so if your on the same package that's right.

Most ISP's limit people to these kind of upload speeds to stop them running internet servers / gameservers on a home connection.

I have a 20MB package with Virgin. If that's the case, then I might consider looking elsewhere for an ISP that provides a better upload limit.

Be, are the best I know from friends that use it, you can get up to 2.5mb upload speeds with them and 24mb down for around 20 a month.

Obviously. Why are you streaming movies? Are your friends too dimwitted to download illegally?

My mate streams random tv shows and films on JTV but i've never understood why, he doesnt gain anything from it and it just eats up his bandwidth.

Is there anything against doing something that's not for personal gain?

I make guides for games, I stream videos of me playing games. That's useful as they help people with them or help them decide to get the game or just enjoy me playing them you know?

Streaming movies is retarded. You're retarded. The people who watch your shitty quality streams are above all, the most retarded.

Yes, because people would rather watch you play shitty games than waste time with a good movie.

I've been contacted by RoosterTeeth saying I should do more guides to see if I could get some sort of wee part time job with them, or something.

I'd need a lot more videos to get really recognised.
