    Please test: how fast is Tudou (China's Youtube) from the US?

    Hi webmasters, please help me out. I am based in China, and as one of my projects, I am producing a Nanjing expat website: http://www.hellonanjing.net

    To make it really fast for the local crowd, I bought a VPS hosted in China, within the Great Firewall.

    Unfortunately, access from outside China was awful, globally. So, I've switched back to a USA server, Inmotion (http://www.inmotionhosting.com/ highly recommended). From China, their servers are excellent!

    I already have reports that access from the US is fast now, for http://www.hellonanjing.net. However, my next concern is video. In China, Youtube is blocked, and has been for most of this year.

    On HelloNanjing, I have been using Tudou, the Chinese equivalent. Hosted via a China server, Tudou works well.

    However, I'd very much appreciate Webmaster Lab people to try my Tudou videos, and report on speeds.

    Here is a link to a HelloNanjing Tudou video: http://hellonanjing.net/iluv-nanjing/nanjing-events/49-video-coast-english-cooking-show

    Page loaded really quickly. Clicking on the video opened the modal dialog real quick, and about 5.6 seconds for the video to load (according to Firebug).

    But then, every 3 or 4 seconds, it would buffer for about 15-20 seconds :(

    Great looking site, btw
