VCast Video on Droid problems!

Anyone else having problems watching Vcast Videos? I've had Vcast Videos on my Droid since I first purchased my phone. Just recently, since the beginning of the month, I've had issues with trying to videos to play on my Droid. The video almost always stops.. lags.. skips... What's the deal!?

It sounds like a network situation, do you have a good signal when you try to use it?  Try logging into router and see if it still does the issue, if it stops then its a network transfer issue,

Yes. I do have, at least, 4 or more bars. When you say logging into another router? How do I do that with my phone?

I tried VCast and had the same issues and canceled it. That was the first month after I purchased my present phone and before I started using wifi. All streaming video, from VCast and otherwise, was/is a hit and miss situation on 3G and I usually don't even bother with it anymore unless I have a wifi connection.

I am sure VCast is great with wifi and it does have great content and (with wifi) is worth the monthly fee.

In lieu of purchasing a router, you might try connecting to wifi at a cafe, bookstore, etc, that offers free wifi and see for yourself how much better VCast performs compared to 3G.

4G will be a much needed improvement.
