Video and audio stops and starts repeatedly, like a dvd or cd skipping. It does this for streaming and downloaded videos and music.

The streaming and download speed cannot keep up with the playing speed of the video or music so when the buffer for the incoming data is emptied, the player has to stop until more data arrives. Depending on the player, there may be a setting for the minimum of data present in the buffer before it starts again. If the player is manually paused (by clicking on its pause button), the streaming and downloading should continue until it is completely stored in local cache and after resuming play, it should be without anymore starts and stops. However, player pausing for some type of streaming stops the incoming data stream as there is no local cache so in this situation, there is no advantage to be gained by pausing the player. The incoming speed is determined by the speed of the slowest link that the data must traverse so even if the local link is extremely fast, there may be slower or more congested parts of the internet that are acting as a throttle.

When watching You Tube it stops and starts again and again


This problem, i.e, the videos keep stopping and starting is usually due to a slow internet connection.

To resolve this issue, kindly let the video download completely before playing the video.

To do this, click the "Pause" button (shown by red arrow in the attached image) on the video bar and let the pink colored bar (shown by green arrow) fill up entirely.


When the pink bar fills up completely, click the "Play" button. (See below image)


Now the video playback will be smooth and without any breaks.

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Everytime I play video clips on YouTube I keep having buffering problems like play then stop then play then stop then play then stop continuously.

Once the page has loaded and the video is starting to play, pause the video and let it load completely before playing. The problem is either youtube and some specific videos and/or you have a slow connection and are having difficulties with streaming content.

Test you download speed here
If you have multiple computers in the same household and are accessing the internet at the same time it will slow down video viewing/download.
If you have wireless make sure your neighbors are not stealing/sharing your connection.

Hi, I for some reason can't run my Youtube with out it stopping and buffering for long periods at time. Its weird because its just started to do this? Is there a way to fix?

The reason you Youtube is Video application are mostly real time, what I mean by this is that the video and audio must syncronise for you to have a meaningful video.
Your internet bandwidth may not be large to support downloading streaming meadia. For vedio to play properly, it will download the vedio first to yoour system before playing the video. the time it takes to download the much your bandwith can accommodaite at a time is the time the system is buffering. If you have a good bandwidth, the video will play without you noticing it playing from the internet.
