Nintendo live stream unwatchably laggy for anyone else?

I'm trying to watch the Nintendo stream over here but the thing keeps stuttering and stopping every 5 seconds no matter what video settings I set it to. Anyone else experiencing this? Seems no one else has a live stream of this so I can't find another source to try it on. I had no problem with the other streams.

It seems to be universally awful

The UK stream is way less shitty.

Awesome thanks! That's actually watchable.Still lags but it seems to be only every 20-30 seconds.

@bobbington: thanks for that uk link. A great first post on this site.

After the US stream kept failing after 2 seconds I started watching the more stable japanese stream... but had to guess what he was talking about

I've watched the international, dutch, and UK stream and all three are kind of unwatchable.
