There are several reasons that cause the YouTube videos to run poorly. Most prominent are the flash errors which not only make videos slower but also causes them to crash frequently. This is very frustrating at times and there is apparently no quick fix for this. However, in this article you will learn how to make YouTube faster and play videos without any interruption.
If you are sure that your YouTube being slow has nothing to do with your internet service or the web site itself then you are in a need to fix your PC and adjust several important Windows settings. It is required to let all the Windows components to run in harmony to do some tasks on the computer.
Here are few basic things that you need to do to make YouTube faster than before:
* Clean up your computer through a registry repairing tool to fix Windows errors.
* Update your sound drivers.
* Update your flash player if need be. The flash player corruption is a great nuisance and it shall be fixed before it damages all the browsers present in your system. Repairing your Windows registry errors through a powerful registry cleaning tool which will fix the active-x and file association errors will surely help you to prevent the browser and flash crashes and consequently your YouTube videos will run faster.
* Improve your internet connection if you have currently been using a slow internet connection.
* Use the fast forward option on the YouTube player to run videos quickly.
*Wait a little to let the videos load before you play them in one go.
* Clear up the cache and internet history.
*Optimize your RAM and your Windows performance through a PC optimizer tool.
Make it sure your computer is not internally slower due to the registry corruption. The registry is the database of program files and codes which define the rules for these programs to run normally. If there is something wrong in this sector then you may expect that every program and even your browser will be running slower.
If you are really interested to speed up YouTube then you should follow the guidelines above and use this speed booster utility called Reg In Out.

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

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.

Buffering continues to interrupt a u-tube vider

Your Internet connection is too slow to "download" and "display" the content in real-time.

So, when you start to play a video, press PAUSE, and let the download proceed for a while, i.e,. about 50% of the progress-bar. Then, press PLAY, to play that "buffered" content, while the remaining 50% downloads.

Acer has jerky video

The video is jerky because the rate at which the video stream is being received on the internet is not keeping up with the rate at which the video is being played on the screen by the video player application that you are using. The video player has an incoming video stream buffer and if the amount of video data in it falls below a minimum amount, the player will pause until the incoming stream refills it to some point above the minimum amount. Most video players will have a pause button and clicking it will manually pause the video player so allowing its buffer (or cache) to fill until you click its play button again. The player will have an indicator of how much of the video content has been downloaded into the buffer and if you pause until all the content has been downloaded, clicking play at this point results in a play of the video that will not be jerky.

Its more than likely due to buffering, your pc has to download so much of a video before it will play. If you have a slower internet connection this really affects streaming media. Best thing to do is start your video, then hit pause and let it buffer up. You will see a faint red line below the video indicating how much of the video is downloaded and ready to view. After you let the video buffer and the bar move to the right some you should be able to hit play and watch your videos without it pausing every few seconds.

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.

I have a 2GB sd memory card with videos taken fromm holiday, when i play it on windows media player, it keeps starting & stoping

When you start the video, hit pause and let the buffer build up the video in memory, you will saa a light gray bar move across the progress bar. When it builds up sufficient "buffer", hit the play button and it should play smoothly...right now the player wants to play faster than the program can process the file. Thus, you have to let the buffer build up the file ahead of the player.

Videos on internet

Basically, when you try to watch videos through Internet from video hosting websites like Youtube or Google Videos, the videos will be first copied into a temporary location which is also called Buffering  in the computer before playing.
But, if you try to play video directly after opening the link, there will not be enough time available to download and save the video into temporary location(Buffer) because of which it may pause in between while playing.
However, you need to pause the video after opening so that it will be Buffered and then it will be played without pausing.
