Joost - dead over plusnet.

Hi

I have installed just Joost on my laptop - I use it over wireless over dsl at work and it's fine. However at home it simply doesn't work (DSL + wireess too). I'm not sure about what ports/protocols are used but I suspect shaping to be the culprit here - does anyone else have a similar experience?

I've been meaning to set it up for a while and try it out but not had a chance, Bob has and I'm sure he said it worked fine on our network. By doesn't work what's the actual problem with it?

Joost works here without any problems. On PAYG here.

By not working I mean that it attempts to play the content, stutters and then dies - displaying 'sorry - we're not able to deliver this content right now' - or something to that effect. I'm assuming that this is due to BW troubles.

yeah. I know assumption etc ...but I have little else to go on here.

This is something I'm interested in. We've seen a fairly big traffic spike since last Tuesday in Gold traffic generally, and I was thinking this might well be Joost related.

I would appreciate more feedback from People using Joost, and if you still need an invite to use it I'd be grateful if someone could send me one - iwild@plus.net (otherwise I will try it myself this evening).

Absolutely useless on BB+ Stutters like crazy or wont play at all.

Having said that it's a load of old crap anyway, and apparently uses huge amounts of bandwidth, so i removed it.

Works fine here on Premier 1 2MB. If the video stutters it's not necessarily your connection, it can be your computer too.

If anyone wants an invite then feel free to PM me, it's pretty nifty.

I'm on premier - not sure if it's opt1/2 though. As I said before it works fine @ work - @ home it plays fine for a bit then simply chokes and dies.
