Watching online video streaming seems to take ages to load, but if I refresh it, it loads almost instantly!

Any explanations to this?

Its probably loading from the browser's cache

I don't think it's from the browser's cache 'cause every time when I refresh it just after it loads, it just loads almost instantly; otherwise, it takes ages to load or even just stuck there.

Browser? OS?
Are you on bigtime? Could be something to do with your request being lost in the cache in Auckland.

Firefox 3.5.7, Win7 Ult,

Yes. Bigtime.

".. request being lost in the cache in Auckland' -- could you please elaborate a little further?

The content is loaded locally once someone views it so if you're the first person to play it then hit refresh and grab it from the local cache instead.

'locally' you mean my computer? If you mean my own computer, it cannot be the case as I'm the only user.

I think that it would be a local server as in NZ
