I believe you are playing streaming video. if this the case, it would depend on your actual connection speed. when it pauses, it means, it is downloading portion of the video, then it resumes to play the downloaded part. Once it has been played, it will need to pause to download again. If your connection is not as fast as what is required by the streaming video, a trick would be to open the streaming video and when it tries to start, press the PAUSE button. Allow the progress bar to go till the end of the video (same like letting it download completely), then it will play fully when you hit PLAY.

The issue could be a connection issue to the video and/or a speed issue. Your connection may not be fast enough to play the video "live" as it downloads it. Meaning that because of the size/quality of the video, it is playing faster than your connection can download 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.

My youtube videos start then within seconds you see the clear circles spinning then plays for a second or two the stops then plays a second then stops. It is a clear picture it just doesn't want to...


The problem is most probably that you have a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video the moment it starts, waiting for say... 2-3 minutes and then hitting play. If it plays smoothly for a few seconds after you've done that, it would mean your internet connection is very poor and that is what is causing the problem. I hope I helped you with my answer!

Why is it that when i listening to songs on youtube broadcasting yourself the song keep stopping?


Youtube downloads the song in the background as you listen to it. If this process, called buffering, happens too slowly, then youtube will pause.
Make sure you aren't downloading anything in the background, otherwise you'll need to load the page, pause the video, and let it sit for a few moments before playing. Getting a faster connection can solve this problem.

Everytime I play video clips on YouTube I keep having buffering problems like play then stop then play then stop then play then stop continuously.


Once the page has loaded and the video is starting to play, pause the video and let it load completely before playing. The problem is either youtube and some specific videos and/or you have a slow connection and are having difficulties with streaming content.

My videos start then loads, then plays, then loads. It keeps loading throughout the video


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. (See below image)

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.

If your playing a video from the Internet, then its playing faster than it can download (which is caused by a number of factors.. including Bandwidth, cpu, RAM graphics card etc.) so if you PAUSE the video and let the buffer fill up , it should work

Hi, I have an Acer Intel Core2 Quad Q8200


That would ppear to be a matter if internet connection speed as it is playing faster than it can stream the video. You could pause the play back for a min or so to give the buffer time to load or consider upgrading your connection to a faster speed.

It could also be caused by having P2P running in the background as this eats up bandwidth as well if so close it down whils streaming video to give more bandwidth.
