I have 2 identical mac mini computers.  They are on the same network.  Same ISP.  1 can stream live video very well, and the other is choppy.  Any reason for this?  Anyway to get the slow one better?  Each mac mini is the same age but 1 has a few more applications on it.

Check activity monitor. Is CPU high? Is available ram low?

I recommend you download the free utility "Etrecheck" on both Mac mini's, run it on each, and post the results here. It will give us a lot of crucial details about the Mac mini's without compromising any security details: http://www.etresoft.com/etrecheck

BTW & FYI

There's no need to download 3rd party software to get your system profile.  You can get the same results of etrecheck by going to the Terminal.app and typing system_profiler.  You can cut & paste the results or you can redirect it to a file to upload.  system_profiler > System_Profile.txt  Then just upload System_Profile.txt

You can also go to spotlight and just search for System Information and cut and paste individual sections, but the command line version is easier for scripting across systems and generating files.
