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.

Why 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.

There may be a few reasons why that happens. If we can assume that your PC has got lots of memory (RAM, like 2 GB or more) and it is set up to use RAM efficiently (i.e. not with a small allocation of virtual memory), and your processor is quite current (i.e. recent CPU that is fast), then the other possible reasons for you to get "buffering" problems are:
1. your (communication) network is not fast enough to keep up with the speed that the video is streaming to your computer 2. your (communication) network is too busy (server other IP users, like in a busy token ring network), to stream the video continuously to your computer 3. the server pushing out the video stream is (too) busy, and hence, there are gaps between sending the video (segments) to your IP address - i.e. your computer 4. your PC is busy doing a few other things, and hence, doesn't have the processing bandwidth to handle the video data volume continuously; the "other things" may or may not necessarily be other applications/processes that you are running, e.g. games, etc. at the same time. For instance, it could be checking to see if your old web pages (in cache) needs refreshing, and / or it is working hard to refresh all your old web pages
If you've cleaned up your PC disk (i.e. removed unnecessary files), optimize your memory allocation/usage, and set your browser option to not automatically update web pages in cache, etc. it may be a network bottleneck. If it happens all the time (when you're watching YouTube) it's likely you'll want to clean up your PC first, then check out the other possibilities)

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.

Long time buffering videos; video streams freeze

If a streaming video takes a long time buffering from Youtube or another website, it's because your internet connection is slow. If your video freezes up and jitters, that might be your internet connection and/or the video card is working too hard.

Go to this website and run the speed test for the city closest to you and let us know what your connection speeds are (download/upload). This will help us determine if the problem is the internet connection speed or something else:

How do i make youtube videos stop pausing and buffering all the time on my computer?

If you have a slow connection or a connection that does the pause/play issue, I suggest when you click on a youtube video, pause it right at the beginning and wait for it to buffer completely. You should see the progress bar below the video fill up (in red or pink, I believe) Once it's filled, you will be able to watch the video uninterrupted.
Good luck.

My online videos skip

Try downloading the videos. Streaming videos (like youtube, metacafe, megavideos, etc. ) can be downloaded. Use Ant Video Downloader in getting the videos off your browser. A free but great tool that works with any streaming sites there is on the web. You don't need to download flv player or codecs to play the video. Ant has its own Player, so as soon as it finished downloading the vids click the Player Button to play them and it will surely not skip.
