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.

Internet streaming audio problems


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.

Computer videos are starting and stopping


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.

What ever starts playing will play a second then stop and it take a couple seconds before it will start then play a second stop and we go through this through the whole thing.


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:

For Windows Media Player version 7.0 and later:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Network tab.
  3. Under Protocols, clear UDP.
For Windows Media Player version 6.4:
  1. On the View menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Select Streaming Media and click Change.
  4. Under Protocols, clear UDP.

Video and audio stops and starts repeatedly, like a dvd or cd skipping. It does this for streaming and downloaded videos and music.


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.

I'm not able to play Youtube videos on my lg GS500v cookie plus. please help.


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

My youtube is stopping and starting & it is stalling?


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.

HI.I was watchinglive streaming but there is a eror sudenly.this eror:rtsp://78.129.143.64/broadcast/pull/81.31.32.47:2030/broadcast/pull/81.19.7.50:3051/stv3.rmvb Can you help me...


Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....
