    Anyone else have issues when trying to stream a video from your onedrive?
    That's a general statement that many will pick apart about internet connection quality, but I have tried multiple things and have had a poor experience on all means of access.

    I have Comcast 100/15 blast at home. And 99% of the time my speed tests are over 95mb down. I also have 50-10 business class at my office and full LTE Verizon strength. No matter the connection, the video buffering is horrible when trying to play from the windows phone app, the windows store app (Surface Pro 3), and both my office and home PCs running 8.1 - via desktop IE browser access (Onedrive.com)

    Video plays for 3-5 seconds then stops for 10-20 seconds. Repeat. And these videos I'm talking about are those shot on my Lumia.

    I have the same issue. I have found Onedrive to be horrible for streaming. Whether Im home and trying to stream from my computer, phone, or xbox one or Im at work I run into the same buffering issue. Ive never had that issue with Dropbox but I guess thats why dropbox is more expensive.

    Most definitely... It's really annoying for trying to share video clips with family & friends... so much so that I've resorted to manually uploading anything I want to actually share with others to Dropbox instead. That's totally unacceptable given that I use OneDrive for everything else and that the files are already automatically backed up there anyway.

    I didn't think I could be the only one. My wife and daughter's accounts do the same. Ive never had a problem streaming Xbox video and Music but when it comes to OneDrive its a disappointment. Im headed over to uservoice and check it out.

    Have you tried using other devices and/or apps, such as using a browser other than IE or streaming from OneDrive with an iOS or Android device? I've not had issues with it on Android.

    Chrome browser... yes. Same thing. Other than that, I got rid of my Moto Xoom tablet for a SP3. And for that matter, this makes it even worse that if I am using all MS products, apps etc, that this experience is so bad.
