Have you checked if you are getting the correct speed on your home broadband (I am assuming that you are using broadband) go to http://www.speedtest.net the result should be approximatly what you are paying for. If it is less it could be upstream traffic as @welisten2you suggested or it could be your internet connection.

Are there times in the day when the speed seems better? (run the test on http://www.speedtest.net at various times of the day) if this is the case it could be network related. Most ADSL services (in the UK) are contended. What this means is that on a typical home line with a 1:50 ratio you are sharing your connection with up to 50 other people it could be that someone in your area is doing large downloads. Alas I do not think there is much you can do about that. Alternativly it could just be a local issue with your router. Take a look at

for a list of actions to take to make sure you have a good connection

First, we need to make sure all the bandwidth consuming programs on your computer are satisfied, meaning it could be a number of things slowing down your video. hit control+alt+del, open the task manager, look at the processes tab. It only takes about 20 processes to run windows and your virus program. If you have more than that , i would go into the settings of any extra programs running by the clock on the taskbar and uncheck the boxes that say something to the effect of "start when windows starts"
Next, check all your programs that regularly require updates example:windows, virus program, spyware program, printer software. If a number of these are looking for updates, it will take some of your bandwidth doing it.
Empty all your internet trash files, cookies and stored web pages will go out and update theselves using your bandwidth. I found a very handy free program that empties all your internet trash folders quickly and from the same easy interface:www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1
just download it to your desktop, open it and run.

It works great and doesn't touch any important windows files like some of the other spy/adware do.
always run more than once untill you get a message "no files removed". This message shows that nothing is going out and getting more info from outside sources and a good indicator that you are spyware/virus free. do not run this till you turn off your browser as an open browser is constantly bringing in info.

If none of these help i would suggest you trying a differtent video driver, but thats another step we'll take if these do not fix the issue..
Post again if you need the next step or rate if this solves the issue.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Computer buffering


Most likely is your Internet connection.

Could you post more details?

Just from the description, your Internet connection to YouTube servers may be slow, which can be a) your actual Internet connection speed or b) YouTube servers, which COULD be bogged down by activity (slightly unlikely, but it could happen).

The problem will go away either on its own or if you get a faster Internet speed service. You are most definitely going to experience this if you are trying to access content using dial-up, but you may also experience this with higher speeds and trying to access HD content (which is much more data to receive).

Cant watch at higher rate. you tube keeps stopping


If you can't watch at a higher rate it means that your internet connection is not fast enough to buffer/load all the information contained in the video quickly enough to play it in a smooth fashion. Use 240p or 360p, this will reduce the amount of time taken to buffer/load the video.

Another approach would be to consider the purchase of a faster internet connection, or may be if you are using a wireless connection, connect your computer/laptop to your router via an ethernet cable when wanting to watch videos. Ethernet cable would be faster especially over long distances.

Take care!

U tube videos keep stopping


If it is pausing and then playing again after a few moments, this is just a process called 'buffering'. It is allowing the player to download more of the video before it begins playing again. To eliminate this, pause the video at the beginning and wait for the red bar in the play track to fill all the way. This indicated that the video had completely loaded.
If the video will not play past a certain point, reload the page. Sometimes if a network connection refreshes during a video download, this issue will occur. If it happens continually, make sure you have a steady network connection.

You tube videos run foe 2 seconds & stop for


Sounds like a bandwidth problem -- a slow internet connection. The only other time I have seen a problem like this was when there was an issue with the motherboard, video card or sound card -- depending on the type of machine you have. To prove there is no issue with video and sound, place a dvd into the machine and ensure that runs properly. Assuming it does, then chances are you just have a poor internet connection.

My Mac is having trouble playing online videos (like you tube)


its not your computer. its the browser you are using. Safari has a issue right now that if you try to play any movie or any game that is using flash which youtube is flash, it won't play or is skippy. So to watch your clips you should use Firefox, Mozilla, Opera . I use firefox and all the movies in flash or shockwave is viewable but with safari you can't. And you can try to install flash again and again it won't help, because safari's developers still forget to allow flash to update on the browser. So since they neglect to fix it in all their updates i just refuse to use it and use firefox. Also you might want to dump your cache for the browser you use as well. becuase buffer means nothing if your cache is full.

and the internet speed usually is a sign that your browser's cache is full. and that you need to delete or dump or clean out the cache.

Watching videos on the internet


This is normal. There is a minimum buffering time, and depending on your internet speed, it can be a few seconds or a few minutes before the video is loaded into memory to be watched without interruption. Just put it on pause when it starts loading.
