Hey, I'm doing a dissertation on which is the best combination of web browser/media player to stream content over the internet. I've been researching for a month to try and make a program in java to measure packet loss/bit rate etc but getting no where. Perl could possibly be the answer. Basically, I have the file hosted on a web server and I will use a combination of either internet explorer/firefox and windows media player/real player. I am totally lost on how to do this and information is very scarce, if anyone could point me in the right direction or if you could let me know if this is viable in perl please let me know. I've used perl at uni quite alot but never for any networking tools. Thanks, Dan.

Well packet loss does not have anything to do with the browser or media player but the underlying design of the network components of the os your using and the quality of the network connection.
