we can try these methods.

1. Use SpeedBit Video Accelerator (google it, it's free!)

2. Change priority of your internet browser by pressing ctrl+alt+del on your keyboard and go to processes and set iexplorer.exe to "High Priority" by right clicking it and carrying out the action.

3. Alternatively you can test the speed of your internet to see if it's up to scratch by going to speedtest.net

it is a problem when you ve low bandwidth.upgrade you BW speed or sometimes with youtube server when high traffic.

SOURCE: YouTube Flash player constantly buffers even if un-nessesary

The best way is to have a DSL or cable connection..You can also use a wireless signal (with a very strong signal)...It buffers when it is downloading the video and the slower your internet connection, the more buffering it will do...also try closing all the other windows except the youtube window and always keep your memory clean using the internet options "delete browsing history"

SOURCE: Youtube buffering is very slow!

It might be your internet connection....if you are using a dial up connection, it will be definitely slow. Next time when watching a video, switch from High definition to Normal to give u a better chance

SOURCE: Youtube's Flash player keeps buffering

1. Its becoz the YouTube server was busy!

2. Just ''Refresh" that page to reload that video.

3. YouTube videos takes a long time to buffer on slow connections.

4. It also depends upon the length of the videos!

SOURCE: slow bufferring videos in youtube

there are a few solutions to this problem;

1) your connection might be slow, you could reset your computer and/or connection.
2) the quality of the video you're viewing is too high for fast buffering speeds on your connection, lower the quality.
3) if you're using a web accelerator, try turning that off.
4) refresh the webpage and try again

New at this show me how to stop buffering please


Unfortunately, it has to buffer in order to play. However, the more powerful your computer, the quicker it will buffer. Increasing the cores on your cpu, adding more ram and a higher end video card would definately speed it up considerably. The speed of your internet connection also plays a part as well as the speed of your hard drive. If the cable connectors are only 3 mbps (megabytes per second) that will slow everything down also. There is a lot to the speed of your computer and video, gaming and surfing the web. Hope this helps

U tube videos keep stopping


If it is pausing and then playing again after a few moments, this is just a process called 'buffering'. It is allowing the player to download more of the video before it begins playing again. To eliminate this, pause the video at the beginning and wait for the red bar in the play track to fill all the way. This indicated that the video had completely loaded.
If the video will not play past a certain point, reload the page. Sometimes if a network connection refreshes during a video download, this issue will occur. If it happens continually, make sure you have a steady network connection.

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.

How can I get youtube to just play thru without stopping to load every 4 or 5 seconds?


You know streaming video is so slow.
So, try to download the YouTube video with a professional Youtube downloader--It's totally free.

r u using a broadband connection having download speed greater than 50 KB/s? if not then there is no solution to this problem because the size of video on youtube is in mb so you need a high speed connection and if you have one then update the adobe flash of your system

Whenever I try to play clips ( ie Youtube, etc) they keep stopping after a few seconds, they stop for maybe 20 seconds and they play for four seconds and stop and so on


This is generally a symptom of a download problem. Check your netowrk connections and verify that they are solid. The video is bufferred down to your local machine and displayed. The display is utilizing the downloaded data faster than you can load additional packets from the net. If you can not find the delay, pause the video for a little while. It will continue to load. That should allow the video to play to completion without delay. If not, then your graphics card may need an upgrade. If the card itself does not have sufficient on-board memory, the information needs to be refreshed from main computer memory which will slow things down.

Check those things first and update this with your results. There are other possibilities as well.

Thanks,
Dan

The youtube video plays for 2 seconds


You may need to update your version of Adobe Flash.
GO TO http://www.Adobe.com and click on the "Get Adobe Flash Player" button on the right.
You must also be running windows XP or Vista. If you are using anything older you are out of luck.
MAC is a different story.
