Sometimes this is caused by buffering. The explorer is trying to play the video faster than it can download it. This may be due to a DSL connection not being fast enough. To see if this is the case and not internet explorer you can download another web browser like google crome. (highly recommended) and try to play the video again. If the problem is still there it may be the bandwidth of you internet provider. If it doesn't do this any more then it is IE8. You can update IE8 or ditch it for a new browser. If there are videos you really like on youtube there is a way to download them. there is freeware called 1click youtube downloader. I use this for instructional videos as well as funny stuff so I can put them on my iphone and send them thru mms. Like the video of the kid coming back from the dentist and is still high from the meds and acts all weird and his parents decided to post it.

    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!

    Until a few weeks ago I could watch youtube now it starts, then stops, starts again, etc. why?


    This problem, i.e, the videos keep stopping and starting is commonly 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.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    While watching youtube videos the videos pause for few seconds and then starts automatically after 5-7seconds, & it goes on when the videos pauses there is a small circle revolving

    This is not your system problem. Your connection speed is slow then system. After playing about 5 seconds video the remaining video is in progress for download from server, this process is technically called buffering. If you can not wait for buffering then you will need a fast connection. This will solve your problem.

    Hope this will helpful for you.

    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.
