Windows A curious network performance reduction noticed by many Windows Vista users of the 2CPU forum that became the talk of Slashdot last week has been identified as having been caused not by DRM, as Slashdot users expected, but by a curious prioritization 'feature' of Vista that's intentionally biased toward Media Player at the expense of network and system resources.

network throughput

The prime is should the network throughput suffer from a local played media file.

According to the article when you play a media file (also *locally*) the network speed decreases. And even if you stop the media player the network throughput is decreased for some period of time.
