The pause is to allow more of the video to be downloaded. The speed of your connection is the problem. You need a higher speed download connection (Increased bandwidth) which may cost you more. The other option is to fully download the video and then view it.

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.

Whenever I go on a site to watch a video,it keeps buffering every few seconds or so.Sometimes the videos don't buffer as much but most of the time it does.


That's the speed of your internet connection causing the problem. higher/lower buffering times depends on the resolution of the video.

MY INTERNET CONNECTION IS TOO SLOW AND THE PLAYBACK CATCHES UP WITH THE BUFFER.HOW CAN I CHANGE THE BUFFFER SETTING TO MATCH MY CLEAR 3G DOWNLOAD SPEED OF LESS THAN 1.0 MBPS?


Depending on where you are trying to watch videos, one my "tricks" is to pause the video and come back later. When you pause the video your browser will still be downloading the video. This, in essence, is manually creating a buffer. When you come back, the video will be downloaded and you can watch it interruption free. Keep in mind, this works for certain video websites and not for others (particularly, ones with mid-video commercials). I hope this helps.

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??

When I try to watch any HD video in my browser, it becomes choppy


If you click a HD video on YouTube, just push the pause button. This will allow the video to download before you watch it. HD videos require more time to download from the YouTube server, which is why you can usually watch normal videos without pausing to wait for it to download.
Hope this helps!!

While watching youtube videos the videos pause for few seconds and then starts automatically after 5-7seconds, & it goes on when the videos pauses there is a small circle revolving


This is not your system problem. Your connection speed is slow then system. After playing about 5 seconds video the remaining video is in progress for download from server, this process is technically called buffering. If you can not wait for buffering then you will need a fast connection. This will solve your problem.

Hope this will helpful for you.

Thanks for using fix ya.

Watching videos on the internet


This is normal. There is a minimum buffering time, and depending on your internet speed, it can be a few seconds or a few minutes before the video is loaded into memory to be watched without interruption. Just put it on pause when it starts loading.

Streaming video on the internet


Your download speed may be effecting this. What you need to do is waiting until file has completed downloading, then watch the video. If a direct feed from the net, hit "play" on the screen, but then "pause" wait a about 20 secs and hit "play" again, this will give it enough time to get ahead of itself.
