Video on a computer is comprised of two components, known as codecs. The audio codec decodes the audio, and the video codec decodes the sound. If one of these codecs is missing or corrupted, then either the sound or the video won't work. I'm surprised it's happening with youtube since their video is quite a generic format. If you can get hold of a file where this happens, there is a utility called GSpot which takes the file and tries to render it, reporting detailed failures where a codec is not working or not found. Try running your piece of video through that and googling the results, you will likely be able to find a codec that fixes your problem.

My new laptop dv6 is pausing for 5 seconds when playing on youuibe then its back and it happens every so often when it wants to... any advice to help sort it?


Do you mean the screen goes black, or just takes 5 seconds to continue loading sometimes? Many times YouTube videos do this all the way through, stop & start, & it usually is only because it is "buffering" the video, then it continues. It's probably the video itself, nothing to do with your PC at all. That happens also on other video sites. If that's all it is, don't worry about it. If you are opening too many pages &/or videos at once, or downloading something else while watching, that can do it too.

Hi, I for some reason can't run my Youtube with out it stopping and buffering for long periods at time. Its weird because its just started to do this? Is there a way to fix?


The reason you Youtube is Video application are mostly real time, what I mean by this is that the video and audio must syncronise for you to have a meaningful video.
Your internet bandwidth may not be large to support downloading streaming meadia. For vedio to play properly, it will download the vedio first to yoour system before playing the video. the time it takes to download the much your bandwith can accommodaite at a time is the time the system is buffering. If you have a good bandwidth, the video will play without you noticing it playing from the internet.

I have tried to view some videos on youtube and my computer won't let me. If I download the javascript from java.com; will that fix the problem?


Websites use different media player formats. If youtube is asking you to install the plugin do so. Java.com is a trusted site and will not hurt your pc.
