comment How to disable subtitles?
To complete your original ask… add the following line to your ~/.mplayer/config file… nosub = true. This will prevent the subtitles from being loaded at all, so you won’t have to type ‘v’.

comment What data is sent when downloading a file?
I just downloaded iTunes using a web browser (Omniweb). The same pattern occurred. How can I find a nearby download to test? And by the way, if the connection were bad, would I be able to get 20 MB/s speeds?

I'm using App Store to download it. But the same pattern applies when I use a web browser.

comment What's the minimum size of a TCP packet
After re-reading your comment... His intended point is to address the problem raised in the opening paragraph. However, he mistakenly ascribes this problem to packet sizes and spends the rest of the post on it. My answer explained the reason for the slow page loading. As others have pointed out, packet characteristics aren't the cause.

You could update your question to indicate that you wanted an answer for a Mac. I use both a Mac and a PC and could have provided either answer.
