Question about YouTube Videos
Start from repairing your Windows registry and fixing your Windows errors that become the cause of many browser and applications errors causing a conflict situation.
* Test your computer for viruses and spyware.
* Run SpeedTest to test whether you have sufficient bandwidth available to smoothly play YouTube videos without causing the site to run slower.
* Disconnect your internet and then reconnect it to know why is YouTube slow and whether it is because of the poor internet at your side.
* Disable ads through some of the browser plug in that will allow you to run fewer background services while you are playing videos online.
* Try to change your flash player version. Although the YouTube has started to stream videos through a new technology there is still a large number of web sites using the flash platform. So it is a nice idea to try to change the flash player version to play videos without crashes and error messages.
* Try to change your browser. One good browser to play YouTube videos is Chrome. If you have not tried that go for it. Also contact your ISP provider if they are limiting your bandwidth at specific durations of the day.
The above solutions will most likely fix and answer your question why is YouTube slow on your computer. However, it is highly recommended you follow all the guidelines especially optimizing your PC Windows for internal registry errors through a top registry cleaner reginout

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