Problem with Video

When watching a video (i.e., YOUTUBE video) online, the video constantly starts and then stops. Eventually you get to see the entire video. The problem is very annoying and started about 1 week ago. I have no problems when viewing my own videos from disk.

Have you been able to watch videos on YouTube prior to this without any hassle?
There are a couple of diagnosis to this situation:-
1. you are downloading or have other programs using your internet bandwith which is causing the buffer to slow right down.
2. your internet speed has dropped due to shaping or even a reduce in plan rate.

When watching a video press pause and let the movie buffer then you will be able to watch the video with out the frame jumps.

Is it possible that you have not download the whole music actually. How about giving this Leawo YouTube Downloader a try?

Leawo YouTube Downloader acts far more than a single online video downloader to download YouTube videos and other online videos from various video sharing sites like Facebook, Dailymotion, AOL, iFilm, Myspace, Dailymotion, etc. Besides the ability to download online flash videos, this FLV downloader could also acts as video download accelerator to speed up online video downloading, video accelerator to speed up video buffering for smooth playback, video player to play back videos, and IE browser to browse online videos for free downloading. It could extract audios out of online videos, like converting YouTube video to MP3. With Leawo YouTube Downloader, watching online videos offline anytime anywhere is just a piece of cake.

Hope it helps. :) Watch online videos offline freely with Leawo YouTube Downloader

I have the you tube app for my bb curve and when I go to watch a video it works for a bit then It stops and says its buffering every 2 or so minutes and when the video comes back on its all distorted and...

To watch Youtube on any device let alone on a mobile device requires you to have good bandwidth for your internet connection: when buffering occurs, it means that your device and web connection cannot keep up with the Video demands and can eventually get completely distorted, choppy ... and unusable! If you don't have a 3G/HSPA or fast Wifi, expect bad Youtube performance!

Whenever I try to watch video on my computer it keeps pausing then starting back up. It is very choppy with the constant starts and stops. What causes this and how can I fix it?

If you are watching online video this is normal for a slow internet connection. Live streaming needs alot of bandwidth. Its not your laptop.

Is it ok with a DVD movie or downloaded movie??

Video streaming that constantly buffers

At&t offers 4 speeds to its customers, 768 kbps 1.5 mbps, 3.0 mbps & 6.0 mbps.  On the 1.5 connection depending on what type of video you're watching, you will experience some glitching.  If your general internet seems slow, then scan for malware/spyware.  
I reccomend you use malwarebytes free version doesn't give realtime protection
