All videos wont play?? Whenever I try to watch any youtube video while I'm at home, about 40 seconds worth of video loads and then it stops. When I go to work and try the same videos, they work just fine. Mind you, I bring my laptop to and from work and home. So I know its not java, flash, antivirus, firewall, etc. causing an issue since I change nothing between work and home. I've also tried clearing the cache, updating java, and uninstalling/reinstalling flash. None of the above worked for me. I'm actually having the same issue with myspace music. Any ideas?

Re: all videos dont play
Could it be your wireless connection? That is if you have wireless. If you do, I had the same problem. It would say full strength connection, yet still it would load slowly. If so, I would suggest ringing your internet provider. If you have built in internet, I have no idea. Sorry.

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.
If a video doesn't play continuously (it stops and starts while you're watching), or stops early, try these troubleshooting steps:
Check your internet connection. You'll need a broadband connection with at least 500 Kbps for the best viewing experience.
Change the video quality to a lower setting to see if the video begins to load.
Pause the video, then change the quality. Allow the gray bar at the bottom of the player to load. Try playing the video again.
If the video still doesn't load, clear your browser's cache and cookies and try viewing the video again.
If you are trying to expand viewer ship of your youtube videos, there is no easy solutions. But the key to having a popular video is "content". No matter how much publicity you put out for your video, it wont reach critical mass unless the public will recognize it as "it is worth watching"
This bring to mind the success story of one video called "Where the Hell is Matt". It is a simple video created by Matt Harding and his friends specifically for fun and to let Matt's parent where he's been.
Here's a few tips to get you started:
1.You can attach links of your video to your FACEBOOK page, or TWITTER or any social networking.
2.Avoid having redundant copies of your video, cause this will half your HITS.
3.Tag your video, tagging your video helps you friends and future viewers find your video when search randomly.
4. Make your videos clear and non irritating so 1st time viewers won't tune off.
5. Make your video short and sweet. Long videos are boring and difficult to load.
6. Keep it simple. The most complex question are solved by simple solution. example. DONT GO HD, a simple 320x240 is a faster load. faster load video has more hits.
8.Be patient.... spread you video through different sites, the more people you reach the more people will watch.
2. busy youtube site
3. congestion on the video itself (lots of people watching)
