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.

Youtube will play then stop over and over what is the problem


that means the video is still trying to download while you're watching it. Try moving to a spot with better Internet connection. I usually hit pause on the video, let it download completely then watch it

WHY VIDEO KEEP STARTING AND STOPING?


if you are watching streaming video from the internet then your computer downloads part of the video and lets you watch it, if the computer plays the video faster than it can download it then it will pause the video while it downloads more this is called buffering. This can be because of many factors which include internet download speed, amount of people online and using the same service. Or a problem on your pc

I have a problem when watching video from youtube, they keep on pausing and buffering every 3 seconds how can i solve this?


Probably your internet connection is too slow. Try to click on Pause right after you click Play and wait to be loaded on the hard drive. Then you click Play and it will not be interrupted.

Whenever I try to watch video on my computer it keeps pausing then starting back up. It is very choppy with the constant starts and stops. What causes this and how can I fix it?


If you are watching online video this is normal for a slow internet connection. Live streaming needs alot of bandwidth. Its not your laptop.

Is it ok with a DVD movie or downloaded movie??

Im trying to watch full episodes on cbs.com and they keep stuttering or skipping


Could be your internet connection. A slow internet connection can cause this. Test your internet connection at www.speedtest.org Try starting the video and then pause it...see if it continues to load on the progress bar. This will allow the show to buffer. Could be the CBS server also. Try watching the shows on a lower resoloution. Check and make sure your motherboard and video card drivers are up to date. Make sure a virus scanner is not running when you are trying to watch a show...that will slow down your computer.

Problems with video playback--Video keeps skipping.


First of all make sure your internet speed is right. Make sure no third party program is running in the background which is taking up CPU resources. You can also download DVD decoder like Klite codec free from www.download.com and reinstall the flash player from www.adobe.com
