Videos start and stop

Hi,
When I try to watch a video on youtube, or any videos on the web, they
start and stop and it is impossible to watch the video.

Do you have any suggestions? I have the latest version of flashplayer and Java.

Thanks,
Candy

Yes the videos you are referring to are probably streaming videos, so once they begin to stream stop the video until the stream reads ahead (the amount will depend on your bandwidth), then once the streaming is well ahead you can start the video again and watch it glitch free unless the video progress starts to catch up to the streaming status at which time you just need to pause again and so forth. You could just wait until the stream is complete and enjoy your video.
Good luck.

When I download music from youtube with my ZTE phone, the song plays for several seconds, then stops. It then continues, and stops again. What can I do about it?


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

How to Download YouTube Video to Mobile?



  • YouTube is a popular video website that allows users to watch videos from around the world. Users no longer need to be confined to the computer to enjoy the videos; they can download the videos to watch on the go as well. Downloading YouTube videos is usually not allowed except for two instances: when a "Click to Buy" or "Download Your Own Videos MP4" option is available. The "Click to Buy" feature is in the testing phase, while "Download Your Own Videos MP4" is currently available for use.

    INSTRUCTIONS:


    1 Go to the YouTube website and log in or create a YouTube account
    2 Click "My Account."
    3 Select "Account Settings" and click "Mobile Upload Profiles."
    4 Click "Mobile Profile Update" button and complete the information.
    5 Click "Create Profile" button to be able to start downloading YouTube videos.
    6 Go to YouTube website on your Multimedia Message (MMS) enabled mobile phone.
    7 Browse and search videos available for downloading. The search function allows you to look for videos based on keywords.
    8 Click on the video that interests you to begin downloading.
    9 Watch your video using the player setting to play, start or stop the video.

    Hi...we are trying to watch You tube videos but they keep stopping and starting. Do you have any suggestions please?


    Hi,

    This problem, i.e, the videos keep stopping and starting is usually due to a slow internet connection.

    To resolve this issue, kindly let the video download completely before playing the video.

    To do this, click the "Pause" button (shown by red arrow in the attached image) on the video bar and let the pink colored bar (shown by green arrow) fill up entirely.

    When the pink bar fills up completely, click the "Play" button. Now the video playback will be smooth and without any breaks.

    Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    You need to upgrade your internet connection. If you think your connection is good enough try to refrain from downloading large files from the internet while watching videos in YouTube.

    My computer cannot play videos from youtube


    Hello,

    There can be various reasons for this. One of the most common is not having a fast enough internet speed. In addition, you may not have the correct streaming software installed. I'm sorry, but thei question is nearly impossible to answer without additional information. If you are able, please post a followup. We will try and help you further. A few questions to answer: Did your computer play videos from youtube previously? If so, what did you do or install (or remove) between then and now that may have made a difference. Also, if you have previously used youtube with no problems, did you switch internet connections or service providers recently? Also, can you play other videos from the web, like flash advertisements, or videos from say, MTV web site or a news web site/ You seem to be saying you just cant watch youtube videos, though you may mean all videos...

    Write back with clarification, or try and troubleshoot your problem first with some of the above suggestions.

    Thank you for using FixYa.
