Why does YouTube keep on stopping when playing?

When strimming YouTube videos I got to keep on moving my cursor or otherwise the picture stops. Howver, the sound continues for a while (for another 10 secs or so) and then stops.

    I have down loaded Siverlight but it still does not help. The problem is only when I am watching YouTube videos but not other videos. I am sure it is nothing to do with my broadband connection or bandwidth or the time of the dayetc.

Any delay or lack of bandwidth between your computer and the YouTube server as well as a high server load can cause a video to pause. Your ability to play videos is also limited by your connection speed.

You can reduce your playback quality in order to get fewer stops and starts but, you will get poorer video.

Why is it that when i listening to songs on youtube broadcasting yourself the song keep stopping?


Youtube downloads the song in the background as you listen to it. If this process, called buffering, happens too slowly, then youtube will pause.
Make sure you aren't downloading anything in the background, otherwise you'll need to load the page, pause the video, and let it sit for a few moments before playing. Getting a faster connection can solve this problem.

My video on youtube keeps stopping and starting. It is fine on live movie maker. What's wrong? Does it take too much memory?


The video buffers. That's it may seem to stop, bec it needs to load first. Try waiting for your video to load first before playing it.

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.

My youtube is stopping and starting & it is stalling?


this is normal with streaming videos. This is the buffering process where the video stream is downloaded, when it starts again, the downloaded stream is being played. If this frequently happens, it would mean your connection is not that fast. May help to clean browsing history, then get a faster internet connection, otherwise, when you play a youtube video, click pause and let it buffer for a while, when the buffer indicator has reached more than half or has completed, you can then play the video continuously.

What problem is youtube having?


when you watch a video it will play faster than its coming through.
so what you need to do is as soon as you pick a video to watch pause it and you should see the red bar keep moving.
once its got a head start you can watch the video but if you catch it up it will stop for a while.

what i do is let the red bar get right to the end and then watch the video trouble free.

Thanks for using fixya...
