SOURCE: Have slow downloading and slow internet tv buffering system

Do as I did. I installed a Trigabit of RAM to my PC or a Giga Bit will do.It has to do with what your PC has in it now. If it is fairly new (say 6-7 years old) then you most likey have 512mb of RAM. For videos which have to buffer you need more speed out of your computer itself not HD memory RAM memory sticks!! You can get a GB stick for only about $12.99 at Staples or maybe Wal Mart. They have been having these type hardware parts here in the past year.
You'll Get It!!

SOURCE: My computer (3 years old) has gotten really slow

1) Download and install a programme called Ccleaner from Filehippo.com.
a) run the cleaner - gets a load of web rubbish off your pc you
didn't know you had.
b) From the menu on the left, select startup, delete all programmes out
of your startup menu except for antivirus and firewall programmes.

2) Disconnect all power, get a natural bristle paint brush and hoover
and, carefully, clean out all the dust and fluff from your pc. (over
heated cpu's step down in speed)

3) Add more ram if still necessary. go to the "Crucial" web site, enter
the details of you pc. Tells you what kind of ram and how much your
PC can run. Bear in mind XP can only use a maximum of 3Gb. You
don't have to buy from here, if you decide just use the info.

How to stop buffering


  • 1 Allow the movie to load completely, or at least halfway, before you start to watch it to stop video buffering.
  • 2 Start the movie and then hit stop until the movie has fully or halfway loaded. As the movie is loading, you should see a yellow or gray line. The line you see will get longer as it loads.
  • 3 Close all windows that you don't need. Having too many windows open will slow the loading process.
  • 4 Resume play once the movie is at least halfway loaded or fully loaded. By this time, you should be able to enjoy the movie without the video buffering or constant starting and stopping.

I have a Belkin router, and a decent internet connection. However, whenever I try to watch video online (e.g. Youtube, or BBC i-player), the connection is very slow, and seems to stop every few seconds. ...


Wait. Play a little (to start the buffer), then pause the video manually for a few minutes (to allow the buffer to fill).

It ain't the router's fault.

Modern browser-plugin streaming client video players (e.g., Silverlight) need some time with your internet connection to learn your best-available resolution and how much to buffer. After a while, it will improve "all by itself."

After several minutes or so of consistent throughput, some players will upgrade your resolution. You'll see the movie suddenly get sharper.

Another tip: Friday evenings and Saturday nights the traffic is heavy and so the internet is slow. Sunday mornings you'll get better throughput.

The netbook freeze or go slow motion when I watch a move


The problem could be any one of the things mentioned below.

1) It could be that you need more memory. Check you laptop to see what is the maximum amount of memory it will hold and if you can upgrade it to more then do it. Click Start/Control Panel and look for System or System and Performance. Click it and it will tell you how much memory you have. You can go to the website of: http://www.4allmemory.com to see what is the total capacity your computer will hold.

2) It could be that the site you war watching the movie from is experiencing heavy traffic or their site is just slow. When you watch a movie in your dvd player does it stall? If it does it's your computer and you need more memory or you might have a virus or infection that is causing it to be slow and freeze.

3) Some internet service providers have different line speeds and you might have a slow line speed. For example, AT&T sells different line speeds and if you purchase the low end (cheapest) then your download and upload speed will be very slow. If you are watching movies online then the streaming (downloading) to your computer could be impacted by the slow line speed.

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.

Um...Note:


Watching videos online will be dependent on your Broadband speed. If the speed slow down, you will experience a lot of buffering that affects the quality or delayed Video feed. I advise to close other programs that uses the internet so the Internet speed will not be divided while viewing videos online

Problem with Video


Have you been able to watch videos on YouTube prior to this without any hassle?
There are a couple of diagnosis to this situation:-
1. you are downloading or have other programs using your internet bandwith which is causing the buffer to slow right down.
2. your internet speed has dropped due to shaping or even a reduce in plan rate.

When watching a video press pause and let the movie buffer then you will be able to watch the video with out the frame jumps.
