First off what is the make and model of the laptop? Also what videos are you referring to? If it is streaming videos then it may be an issue with your internet connection. You can run a speed test at this link:

You tube stops and starts while playing. what can i do?


All you have to do is pause the video because it will then continue to buffer. Once it has fully buffered just click play and i can 100% promise you that it will be working and it will not pause to buffer any more during that video. But as i said depending on speed of connection and size+length of the video file this could either be a quick job or a slow boring patience testing job. i hope this was helpful

Youtube keeps buffering every 5 seconds


Your download speed is too slow to both "download" and "play" at the same time.

Contact your ISP, and upgrade to a faster service.

Or, stop running any other software that is downloading/uploading (such as peer-to-peer file-sharing software), so that the full speed of your Internet connection is available to YouTube.

My youtube videos takes more time buffering than playing a 5 min video takes 30mins or more to play


The reason why the youtube videos takes more time in buffering is it gathers the data/video before it loads or run. And it will also vary the speed of the internet connection. Meaning, the low internet connection, the more time in buffering.

Long time buffering videos; video streams freeze


If a streaming video takes a long time buffering from Youtube or another website, it's because your internet connection is slow. If your video freezes up and jitters, that might be your internet connection and/or the video card is working too hard.

Go to this website and run the speed test for the city closest to you and let us know what your connection speeds are (download/upload). This will help us determine if the problem is the internet connection speed or something else:

How do i make youtube videos stop pausing and buffering all the time on my computer?


If you have a slow connection or a connection that does the pause/play issue, I suggest when you click on a youtube video, pause it right at the beginning and wait for it to buffer completely. You should see the progress bar below the video fill up (in red or pink, I believe) Once it's filled, you will be able to watch the video uninterrupted.
Good luck.

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!

My asus netbook plays slow jerky videos when I watch them directly from the net. Anyone have a solution? Is this problem unique to asus or all netbooks? Thanks.


Hello

OK, you need to have a look at the buffer speed of the videos you are watching directly of the web.

It is actually all about the speed of the internet connection. A faster connection allows for the video to buffer faster than it actually takes to watch it, understand?

Thus, if you have a slow internet connection, the real time of the video will be faster than the video can be bufferred, so there will be pauses whle watching.

Thus, best advice without spending money, is to keep your flash player updated and let the videos buffer for a minute or 2 and then click play.
