Video player Playback stalls and does not play smoothly

    my utube downloads are stuttering also after months of it working ok- what could have caused this?

  • ajp1228 Nov 23, 2008

    I'm having pretty much the same problem, which has just started in the last few days. If the video loads at all, it gets stuck after a few seconds; it may a few seconds at a time and keep stalling, but eventually it just gets stuck. This was what it was doing Thursday night. Tonight, however, I can't even get the video to load at all. The round circle just keeps spinning.



    I have no trouble with flash videos on other sites; this is specific to YouTube. I am running Windows XP and I do have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed. Clearing my internet cache was no help; my computer has been restarted a couple of times since this started happening; I tried turning off Zone alarm; I tried tweeking settings on other programs as suggested on YouTube's help page. Nothing has helped. Does anyone have a solution, or does anyone know if YouTube is working on the problem?


    Thank you.

    Update: I have spent more time surfing through YouTube and have found that some videos are working; however, the ones I was originally trying to access still do not load. The ones I have been able to view so far have had far fewer total views than the ones that will not load.

    Hello guest,
    do you let the youtube download all the way before you play it or do you let it go when the computer starts playing?

I would also suggest clearing your cashe (coockies) and history, it will be slow at the start but will runn much smoother the second time around.

Videos start and stop with long pauses


Hi,

This problem, i.e, the videos keep starting and stopping 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)
