You can't except by reducing the quality of the video. Your internet connection is so bad, the 'pot of buffering' is not being filled fast enough as playing it, is emptying it. Think of a bath being filled with the drain open.

Buffering is there to help you, your connection to the internet isn't.

Preloading data into a reserved area of memory (the buffer). In streaming audio or video from the Internet, buffering refers to downloading a certain amount of data before starting to play the music or movie.

How to stop buffering


  • 1 Allow the movie to load completely, or at least halfway, before you start to watch it to stop video buffering.
  • 2 Start the movie and then hit stop until the movie has fully or halfway loaded. As the movie is loading, you should see a yellow or gray line. The line you see will get longer as it loads.
  • 3 Close all windows that you don't need. Having too many windows open will slow the loading process.
  • 4 Resume play once the movie is at least halfway loaded or fully loaded. By this time, you should be able to enjoy the movie without the video buffering or constant starting and stopping.

When I go to play a video It will play for a few seconds, stop, than play and it continues to do so.. what do I need to do to fix this problem?


This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.

I downloaded an update (BD.808.544.B) on Sunday, 2/20/11 and since then I cannot stream movies on netflix. The message on each attempt is "Sorry, this title cannot be watched instantly at this time....


I had a similar problem. Mine would take about 30 seconds just to detect the connection speed, then would take about 3 minutes to buffer the movie. After about 3 minutes of playing, it would stop and buffer about 3 more minutes of the movie, play for 3 minutes, then stop and buffer about 3 more minutes, etc.
I noticed on another thread that people were disabling BD-Live to resolve other issues, so I tried that and it seems to have solved my problem. You might want to give it a try. Under Setup -> Network -> BD-LIVE connection - set it to Prohibited and give it a try.
I guess you only need BD-Live enabled if you have BluRay discs and want to access the online extras.

I just bought this laptop yesterday, and ever since then every time i play download a movie or watch a video on you tube it stops and plays, stops and plays. what do i do?


Hello

OK, this does not have any thing to do with your laptop itself. This is actually due to your internet connection. The videos will stop an play if they are buffered far enough, hence, if the video plays faster than it can buffer, it will stop until is is buffered far enough.

The solution for this problem can be to upgrade your internet connection.

Hope this can be of help, if this was nor what you were looking for, let me know so we can try something else.

Kind regards

When I try to play a Youtube Video it stops and starts continuously....How do I fix this?


Me too! I believe there are a lot of reasons for this, but a fix may not be out there. It's called buffering. Check Internet connection speed and consistency, how many other programs are running in the backround, computer proccessor speed, MB of Ram it has. Try not to play videos in HD if you were already. Just some ideas.

Real player


Your problem isnt the player. Its not downloading the video fast enough at the play speed. Try pausing the video for a while to let the buffer get ahead then play it again. You can also go into the settings and change the length of the buffer from what I remember. It should be pretty clearly marked. Hope it helps!
