Not challenging you John. Just trying to educate you.

What, pray tell is the frame rate?  I note all sorts of statistics there,
but not the frame rate.  Is it greater than 12 fps?

You are obviously not very familiar with the QuickTime player. After opening a movie, select "Show Movie Inspector" under the "Window" menu.

It appears that all sizes of this movie are 29.97 Frames per second. The inspector also tells you the average bit rates.

And, just to point out again, my bit rate at home is 1.8 mb/seconds.  The
bit rate with the circuit I'm now using is 1.2 mb/sec.


As others have pointed out, it is not uncommon to get 8 mbps or more on cable broadband connections.

Let me know when you can watch a -- say -- NFL game in HD at home with a
frame rate greater than 12 fps.

How much do you want to pay?

And I'm not talking about the bandwidth...just what the NFL will charge you for the privilege. By the way, CBS Sports streams all of its SEC football games this year for free. Not HD, but a high enough frame rate to enjoy the action.

John Willkie, who knows all about playing games with frame rates to make
streaming work.

And playing games on this list to make it sound like you know what you are talking about.
