Because when you watch it online on Narutoget you need to use
resources for flash too. That's the problem.

Are you sure you have just 1mbps (megabits per second)?
I'm asking you because if so, the speed is in the normal bandwidth:
1mbps connection is more less 125KB/sec.
To make the math think I have a 10mbps here and I can download torrent
at 1,2MB/sec. Different story if you have 1MBps (Megabytes per second)
in this case is exatly the connection I have.

The time depends from the site you are trying to download too. I
downloaded ep 323 eng subbed just now and it took 8 minutes for 184MB
when, in theory, it will need less than 3 minutes with my connection.
Means with just 1Mbps you need at least 25 minutes.
Speaking of the video, this episode was encoded at 720p, so your
answer is yes, you can handle 720p fine if played locally. :)
