This problem may occur to anyone, on pretty much any computer and any ISP. It does not matter how fast your connection or video card is if the Google server that your connection is using is overloaded at the time you are viewing the video. It can only deliver the stream at the rate it can handle the output.

The "fault" lies with Google, but servers and data centers are expensive, and it's not possible to have enough servers on the right node to always deliver all the bandwidth being delivered, except at a prohibitive cost.

    I should add in the interests of accuracy that there is a 2nd factor which is actually more relevant, and that is an issue referred to as peering. ISP's and services such as YouTube and Netflix agree to trade traffic back and forth, generally at no charge. The problem comes when YouTube, for example, sends much more traffic to an ISP than it receives. The ISP would have to have much more capacity than YouTube, and that costs money. If YouTube does not want to assist in funding that capacity the ISP can decide to allow their traffic to be less than optimal rather than spend the money to upgrade.

First Internet connection should be at least 1Mb dedicated and up.
Second the problem might be from Youtube buffering server.
Third, you should check your computer specs + your browser latest update.
Hope this help you

SOURCE: YouTube Freezes

YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.
For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible
2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.
3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.
4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.
5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.
The above guidelines allow you to take measures to and keep your Windows properly maintained.
You can get a wonderful registry cleaner and PC optimizer reginout

SOURCE: why wont my pc play youtube music videos

1. bandwith
2. busy youtube site
3. congestion on the video itself (lots of people watching)

Solution:
www.veoh.com 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. www.adobe.com
you can also try html 5 @ www.youtube.com/html5

Good luck

Please before you leave, please leave some feedback and ratings. Thanks

When playing a u tube video it will freeze up every few seconds. On you problem list other people seem to have the same problem. We contacted our provider AOL who said the problem was U tubes not them....


This particular problem is quite common to people who have very slow internet connection and you're playing high quality videos or HD. I suggest you change your subscription into MB speed rather than a Klb speed but of course it increases the payment. Or if not, play the video in a very low quality to play the video very smoothly but it affects the quality of the video, please refer to Youtube video options. This is intended for DSL or Cable internet connection, not broadband.

Videos freeze


Your problem about slowing, freezing or stopping Youtube video streaming is either the cause of the following:

1.) Maybe you have a very slow internet connections. There is a big tendency that the video you're watching online would stop and go every few seconds most especially if you're playing high definition video (HD Quality). I suggest you upgrade your connection to more suitable range. To do that contact your provider and ask them what subscription is better for your need.

2.) If you have a very fast connection and still freezing every few seconds, I doubt your flash player should be upgraded to its latest version in order to sustain its new definitions and requirements to play the video smoothly as watching DVD. To do that you need to check for latest updates of your browser in Help Menu usually Firefox have this. As you upgrade a warning will show you that you need to download the latest Adobe Flash Player. Sometimes, if there is update in flash it will just pop-up in system tray informing you that you need to install immediately the upgrade.

3.) The video itself has a problem, this was the cause if the owner of the video uploaded it to Youtube erroneously.
