    I recently joined FORAtv. There are videos of lectures there that interest me.
    However, when I try to open one and it starts to download I get a message
    telling me that I have "insufficient bandwidth" for the video to stream.
    This is the first time I have seen such a message when trying to watch a video
    but I now realise this has been a problem for some time in sites like YouTube
    or CollegeHumor etc.
    A search for information does not provide much that I can understand and

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this something I need to take up with my ISP?

    How are you connecting (dial-up, cable, DSL)? Obviously, dial-up won't cut it for streaming video. If you are on cable or DSL, you may be on one of the "budget" high-speed plans, where your speed will certainly be faster than dial-up, but not fast enough to stream video. I would check with your ISP as a first step.
