    I see that videos taken with my l920 are getting uploaded to SkyDrive with a bitrate of 10mbps. May be, because of this, streaming those files are very slow. I tried with pc browser, l920, Xbox. Also friends with whom I shared, on their iphones etc. Anybody facing this? How to overcome this?

    I tried playing a SkyDrive video on my 360 and it took a long time to load.

    Skydrive is very slow streaming video. Makes you wonder if it was done on purpose to keep bandwidth use down....

    This is really frustrating me because its only streaming which is slow, even 5 second clips buffer, where as when I download the same video transfer speeds is almost 2MB/s so what gives? who do you contact regarding this, or does anyone know of another service where you can stream at good speeds?

    Has anyone gotten to the bottom of this issue? Recently also posted the below to a thread reporting the same issue in the Windows Phone 8 forum here. People all over are having this issue from what I can see.

    This is not an internet connection problem, this is a SkyDrive problem that many users are complaining about in the MS SkyDrive forums, myself included.

    I've had the same issue of not being able to cleanly play any of my 720p and 1080p HD video shot from a Nokia Lumia without buffering. Same problem for my friends and family when i share the videos. Because of this I've completely stopped using SkyDrive to share anything.

    Same videos when uploaded to my YouTube and Flickr accounts play in HD and cleanly. Microsoft unfortunately is sitting around doing nothing on this issue it appears.
