No. It's due to distance and latency. Because they are so far from the stream server their latency is 250+ ms and cannot sustain even half a megabit consistently (video stream is 1mbit Flash H264). The only way to fix this is to use a CDN (Content Delivery Network). Big name ones are Akamai and Limelight.
No, it's because you use Flash for video on your site, like all ****** sites do.
