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
Andrea

Stops and starts when playing HD videos online


You did not state whether this is happening via PC, laptop, you tube, kodi box, etc so I have given you a broad set of advice. If, as I suspect, you are either string from a kodi type box or online service, the most likely answer to your problem will be one of the following:

low bandwidth from internet provider or router settings. (Speak with provider support to improve this, although some providers do this deliberately at certain times of the day) the solution to this is to watch the movie at a lower setting; 720p, HQ setting etc. Watch at a less busy time of the day.

The server you are watching the HD movie from is busy or lacks the band width to stream multiple connections at a time. (More likely just busy especially with popular films)
Solution; watch at lover quality setting or try another server address or connection if posible.

If this happens just on HD then it is likely to be one of the above but if it happens on any streamed movie at lower quality settings too, you may have to think about checking router cables and connection integrity.

How come I cannot watch video downloaded from play movies but I have audio from the movie


Your playback unit does not have the proper software codecs to play back the video portion. Happens all the time with newer tv's that allow you to play back downloaded movies. Some will work, others do not.

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 have toshiba satellite L500D. I cant download any movies or tv shows and when i watch tv from yahoo 7 it stops and starts as does Youtube....PLEASE HELP!!


When downloading videos from sites such as You Tube, the download is known as "streaming video". It fills the buffers on your machine and then displays it on your screen. If your connection is not fast enough, the buffers will empty before the data stream can re-fill them. This produces the stop start situation. The best way to overcome this is to do something else while the video plays, then come back when it's finished and replay it...it will now play ok.
If your connection is slow, then it's likey its timing out during the download of movies or TV shows, stopping the data flow.

I can't watch movies in my laptop, even the downloaded movies i can't watch it. where can i watch?


you need to find an approprieate programme that will be able to play movies of any format.

go to filehippo.com and download VLC or Videolan and a Gomplayer or Divx. I am sure that these would be able to play you your movies.

have fun

I cant watch movie from youtube


If you can watch a video no matter how slow it plays then the issue aint with the plugins or the browser, The possible cause is the internet connection speed, if videos play for sometime and shows buffering then your internet connection speed is either slow or used up by other internet related applications that use the available bandwidth if you are running them simultaneously.
