Default Any *real* advantage to 512 kbit over 256 kbit?

Would 256 kbit be
fast enough to view such clips, or is 512 kbit normally expected for
high bandwidth clips, so that it would turn out that I'd be stuck with
the lower-quality modem clips, which somewhat defeats the effort :-(

IME most "High Bandwidth" streams are 300kbps. You need a 512k connection
to watch them without stuttering. If they are even higher, say 512kbps,
then you would need a step up from that. 600kbps (on cable) would probably
be ok, 1MBps if you're using ADSL (not that you NEED 1Mbps but it's the next
available speed up from 512kbps)
