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.

SOURCE: Slow speed, fan coming on loudly in Dell D800

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.

SOURCE: Streaming Video starts and stops

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.

Choppy internet connection


If you are a frequent viewer of Internet-based video, then you know how frustrating it can be when streaming video doesn't play correctly. When a video is described as being "choppy," it can mean several things, including out-of-sync audio, stuttering frame rate and/or inconsistent stream speeds. However, although this term can mean several things, there are several ways to address all of these issues at once and help make your video viewing experience a bit smoother. Empty your Internet browser's cache and temporary files. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Clear Private Data Now" (in Firefox) or "Delete Browser history" (in Internet Explorer). When you browse the Internet, your browser collects information from the websites you visit and carries this information as temporary and cache files. Too many of these files can bog down your computer, so delete them. Disable hardware acceleration. Open your computer's "Control Panel" and then click "Display." Select the "Settings" tab, click on "Advanced" and then click "Troubleshoot." Drag the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. This procedure can help reduce the strain on your processor, which can lead to choppy videos. Add virtual memory. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can add extra RAM to your computer by plugging a USB mass storage device into the computer. The operating system will automatically convert the unused space into RAM. Run your disk defragmenting utility. Click "Start" and then select "Programs." Click "System Tools" and then "Disk Defragmenter." This utility will eliminate the fragmenting of files, which could be taxing your processor.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 24A. The videos that I run from YouTube and other such sites do not run smoothly. They are jerky/choppy. What could be the reason. Please do not tell give me complicate


Anytime your streaming videos are playing but not running smoothly, you either have a slow internet connection and aren't downloading fast enough to keep the data streaming OR you don't have enough RAM to keep up with the streaming data and everything else that's going on in the background. Check your internet connection speed first. If you have a good download speed then add RAM to your pc. (You could also try clearing cache on your browser)

Computer videos are starting and stopping


Either you need more memory in your computer or the site from where you are streaming the videos has a lot of traffic. Also, it might be that you have a slow internet connection. AT&T sells a slow speed internet connection that is not for streaming videos and it will be very slow.

If you can play a DvD on your computer without it starting and stopping then it could be the site you are streaming the video from.

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.

Videa stops and buffers


Sounds like you are trying to stream video--apparently your internet connection is too slow for the speed of the streaming video. You buffer some of the content and your computer starts playing it. Since it is coming into the computer so slowly, your computer plays everything in the buffer and then has to wait for more content.

I have toshiba satellite L500D. I cant download any movies or tv shows and when i watch tv from yahoo 7 it stops and starts as does Youtube....PLEASE HELP!!


When downloading videos from sites such as You Tube, the download is known as "streaming video". It fills the buffers on your machine and then displays it on your screen. If your connection is not fast enough, the buffers will empty before the data stream can re-fill them. This produces the stop start situation. The best way to overcome this is to do something else while the video plays, then come back when it's finished and replay it...it will now play ok.
If your connection is slow, then it's likey its timing out during the download of movies or TV shows, stopping the data flow.

Long time buffering videos; video streams freeze


If a streaming video takes a long time buffering from Youtube or another website, it's because your internet connection is slow. If your video freezes up and jitters, that might be your internet connection and/or the video card is working too hard.

Go to this website and run the speed test for the city closest to you and let us know what your connection speeds are (download/upload). This will help us determine if the problem is the internet connection speed or something else:
