Re: Streaming video on the internet
Your download speed may be effecting this. What you need to do is waiting until file has completed downloading, then watch the video. If a direct feed from the net, hit "play" on the screen, but then "pause" wait a about 20 secs and hit "play" again, this will give it enough time to get ahead of itself.

At this point I would suggest doing a fresh install of the windows operational system, or if you can remember when the problem started with the last download or updates that may give a clue where to look, finally try a system restore if you can back date it far enough.
Either you need more memory in your computer or the site from where you are streaming the videos has a lot of traffic. Also, it might be that you have a slow internet connection. AT&T sells a slow speed internet connection that is not for streaming videos and it will be very slow.
If you can play a DvD on your computer without it starting and stopping then it could be the site you are streaming the video from.
To resolve this problem, make sure that UDP protocol is disabled for the Windows Media Player on the client computer. If UDP protocol is disabled, the player connects to streaming content through TCP or HTTP (if these are enabled on the Windows Media Server).
To disable the UDP protocol, follow these steps in the Windows Media Player:
The streaming and download speed cannot keep up with the playing speed of the video or music so when the buffer for the incoming data is emptied, the player has to stop until more data arrives. Depending on the player, there may be a setting for the minimum of data present in the buffer before it starts again. If the player is manually paused (by clicking on its pause button), the streaming and downloading should continue until it is completely stored in local cache and after resuming play, it should be without anymore starts and stops. However, player pausing for some type of streaming stops the incoming data stream as there is no local cache so in this situation, there is no advantage to be gained by pausing the player. The incoming speed is determined by the speed of the slowest link that the data must traverse so even if the local link is extremely fast, there may be slower or more congested parts of the internet that are acting as a throttle.
Open top menu and select "Connectivity", which is present in settings
section. In that, open "Streaming settings". Touch on button below the
Internet profile. Select the internet profile that you are currently
using for browsing or any streaming profile provided by your ISP.(E.g.,
BSNL provides separate profile called bsnlstream for streaming and
bsnlnet for browsing, whereas, providers such as Tata Docomo provide
TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET as APN for both browsing and streaming). Hence,
select appropriate profile according to your ISP. Now you will be able
to play youtube videos
Sounds like you are trying to stream video--apparently your internet connection is too slow for the speed of the streaming video. You buffer some of the content and your computer starts playing it. Since it is coming into the computer so slowly, your computer plays everything in the buffer and then has to wait for more content.
this is normal with streaming videos. This is the buffering process where the video stream is downloaded, when it starts again, the downloaded stream is being played. If this frequently happens, it would mean your connection is not that fast. May help to clean browsing history, then get a faster internet connection, otherwise, when you play a youtube video, click pause and let it buffer for a while, when the buffer indicator has reached more than half or has completed, you can then play the video continuously.
vista doesn't come with 16 bit, it is 32 or 64 bit. use media center utility for watch live streaming. media player 11 is also capable for playing the live video. realplayer is the best tool for playing live videos
