Why do Youtube videos keep stopping and starting?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I never used to have this problem but recently, when I view Youtube videos, they keep stopping and starting, so much so that it takes about 5 mins to actually view a 30 second video! Any videos or avi files I have on my Pc open and run smoothly with my video viewing applications (ie Windows Media Player, QuickTime etc). Do I need to adjust settings somewhere to make the Youtube vids play smoothly?

Thanks.

That has happened to me quite a few times, and I found that refreshing the page solved the problem. And if that didn't help, reinstalling flash sure did.

 

What browser do you experience that problem in?

answer this question, does the play time exceed the download time ?

 

 

if so either youtube is having bandwidth issues or theres something wrong with your connection to the net.

What's your connection speed? You need 384 Kbps or greater to view video smoothly...

 

Sometimes it's their servers causing problems because they can't transmit data fast enough.
