The most possible cause is slow internet connection, I experienced this too sometimes with Youtube before going to ADSL line.

I have a 19:11 second video that i edited using the youtube capture app on my ipad, posted it to youtube, only showed 2 minutes of it (possibly because My channel wasn't authorized to post a long vide

It sounds like that when you first uploaded the video to YouTube they put in an embedded code to make it stop at 2:40. I think the answer is to get the file imported into a video editing software and remove that code. However this will depend on what format the file is. YouTube video's tend to use FLV files which most editing software will not import. Converting the file might also import only the 2:40 version. But it's still worth a try. You should be able to get conversion software free. If you don't have a video editor have a look on Amazon for one. Most of them will import video's at high quality to YouTube and will be better than YouTube editing stuff.

My youtube videos start then within seconds you see the clear circles spinning then plays for a second or two the stops then plays a second then stops. It is a clear picture it just doesn't want to...

The problem is most probably that you have a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video the moment it starts, waiting for say... 2-3 minutes and then hitting play. If it plays smoothly for a few seconds after you've done that, it would mean your internet connection is very poor and that is what is causing the problem. I hope I helped you with my answer!

How can I get youtube to just play thru without stopping to load every 4 or 5 seconds?

You know streaming video is so slow.
So, try to download the YouTube video with a professional Youtube downloader--It's totally free.

Why wont my pc play youtube music videos

1. bandwith

3. congestion on the video itself (lots of people watching)

Solution: like youtube but much faster.
Download the video directly on your computer using real plyaer video downloader and watch it that way. Or subscribe to a hgigh bandwith package or wait during non peak times.

other possiable cuases are:

Adobe flash needs to be updated.
you can also try html 5 @

Youtube videos play for a few seconds; stop; play a few seconds more. I have 2GB RAM. How can I get them to play smoothly?

Check your connection; Streaming issues are mostly caused by the Internet connection itself ; If the Internet is OK then it could be with the transmission of the Internet or Filter like Firewalls or router along the traffic.

Video's on the web skip and stop instead of playing straight through. A 3 min video can take 10 minutes to watch????

While starting to play a YouTube video, press the PAUSE button.
Wait 2 minutes, and press the PLAY button.

If it plays "smoothly", then the only problem is the speed of your Internet connection. For example, if you have a teenage son,
and supply him with only one cheese-burger per day, he will complain that you are "starving" him. If you supply him more quickly, i.e., more burgers per day, he will stop complaining.
Similarly, a faster Internet connection will smooth-out your videos,
because the download is supplying data faster than your video-player is "consuming" the data.
