Do as I did. I installed a Trigabit of RAM to my PC or a Giga Bit will do.It has to do with what your PC has in it now. If it is fairly new (say 6-7 years old) then you most likey have 512mb of RAM. For videos which have to buffer you need more speed out of your computer itself not HD memory RAM memory sticks!! You can get a GB stick for only about $12.99 at Staples or maybe Wal Mart. They have been having these type hardware parts here in the past year.
You'll Get It!!

How to stop buffering on galaxy tab 3


I assume you mean video buffering. This is usually caused by a slow internet connection. You have a galaxy tab 3 so I assume the device is not the issue. If your internet connection is improved you should see the buffering happen a lot less. Try measuring your internet connection speed on a website. Something like http://www.speedtest.net can tell you what your internet speed is. Usually you want to be at least 5 Mbps or higher download speed to see minimal buffering issues.

Cant watch vieodes without buffering


You-tube I assume.

Your internet line speed is slow, reduce the viewing quality.

Set it lower than it is set to currently, by clicking the spanner on the bottom right of the video.

Take care!

Can anyone tell me why the videos i watch on youtube keep stopping and going and how i can fix that ?


Usually it's due to internet traffic and download speeds of your connection. Pause the video and let the entire video download before watching.

All videos are very choppy such as HULU or utube and machine seems to run slow in general . Start up and shut down seem to be slow also.


Downloaded videos can sometimes play "faster" than your Internet connection can download them, in the same way that parents can never keep enough food in the refrigerator to feed their teenagers.

Start downloading the video, and click 'pause' to let the download continue for 30 to 60 seconds, and then click 'play', to see if the video is "smoother" when the "buffered" content is being read from your local disk-drive.

If not, then the "performance" of your computer needs to be investigated.
How much RAM in your computer?
Windows 2000? XP? Vista? 7?
Is your anti-virus software working correctly?
Have you recently done a "full" virus-scan -- computer-viruses can cause your computer to slow down.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer, and then reboot.
Does the reboot go faster with _NO_ Internet connection?

I am trying to watch internet free tv, but it cuts out


If you're trying to watch streaming media on a slow internet connection, it will undoubtedly cut out.

That seems like the most logical solution given the information provided.

Whenever I try to play clips ( ie Youtube, etc) they keep stopping after a few seconds, they stop for maybe 20 seconds and they play for four seconds and stop and so on


This is generally a symptom of a download problem. Check your netowrk connections and verify that they are solid. The video is bufferred down to your local machine and displayed. The display is utilizing the downloaded data faster than you can load additional packets from the net. If you can not find the delay, pause the video for a little while. It will continue to load. That should allow the video to play to completion without delay. If not, then your graphics card may need an upgrade. If the card itself does not have sufficient on-board memory, the information needs to be refreshed from main computer memory which will slow things down.

Check those things first and update this with your results. There are other possibilities as well.

Thanks,
Dan

HI.I was watchinglive streaming but there is a eror sudenly.this eror:rtsp://78.129.143.64/broadcast/pull/81.31.32.47:2030/broadcast/pull/81.19.7.50:3051/stv3.rmvb Can you help me...


Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....

Video and Audio Freeze


Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.

Hope this helps,
