Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
I have a toshiba satellite c855d-s5106 and when i stream video while its playing the frame stops but the video is still playing, in oother words even though the video is playing the frame stops yet it isnt the speed i know that for sure oh and im using google chrome
Most streaming video these days is flash-based. I'll assume you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the K-Lite codec pack already. Google Chrome has a tendency to allow more than one version of flash to run at one time, which can cause all kinds of problems. Open up a new tab and type "chrome://plugins" (without the quotes, of course) and hit enter. Adobe Flash Player is usually the first item listed. Click on "+ Details" to the right of that and disable the oldest version that is running, then restart Chrome. Let me know if you're still having trouble after that.

Yeah the slowdown is the laptop throttling back due to overheating.
When you do processor-intensive work like - streaming videos - the laptop overheats. The fans come on loudly.
When the computer heats up despite the fans, the processor throttles back to relieve the heat.
When you reboot your machine, it stops performing intensive work, giving it a chance to cool down. It's not restarting that fixed the problem it's the fact that the laptop cooled down.
So here's what you do. Get an air duster and blow all the dust and gunk out from your fans. They are most likely clogged with dust and that's what's causing your cooling problems. If there are large dustballs in there, use a tweezers and pull them out. Get as much out as possible.

This is a very common problem and the possible solutions are many, but the most common problem is that the computer is a bit slow for such things as watching videos on the Internet. You could check your performance tab under Task Manager to see how your computer CPU speed is affected while starting videos. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys to bring up the task manager, then go to the performance tab and watch for the percentage CPU usage while under load. Also make sure that your Internet speed is fast enough. Also, sometimes programs such as anti-virus programs will activate when you do something new like start a new program and it will cause delays in the software. The solution for this would be to try another anti-virus software or disable it temporarily just to see if that is the problem.
