Will increasing the buffer size make flash streaming video stop stalling?

I have surmised all this on my own so it could be just a fantasy, but:

I am often the victim of slow internet connections. This means that when I try and watch streaming video it constantly pauses. It's my understanding that increasing the buffer size of flash would help prevent this but I can't figure out how to do that.

You can pause the video just long enough for the player to load enough content. Most Flash player show a loading bar if you hover the player. For short pieces you can load the entire content before starting the play.
