Stream broadcast can be affected by internet connection speed, browser type and streams own preferences

    If your internet speed is fast enough problem can be browser related. If you are using internet explorer you can use Firefox or Opera. Also you can record the stream and replay seamlessly.

You need a faster internet connection.

If you are using wireless try connecting your laptop directly to your wireless router using a network cable, if the video's are not OK then you may have issues with your wireless. Could be interference or signal issues.

If it's still slow with the wired connection then you may just have a slow connection.

If you are on dial-up then forget about it.

It may help to ensure that you have an updated flash plug-in, visit http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/ and upgrade if needed.

Video over the internet requires quite a bit of bandwidth so if your connection is slow or congested then it will have to buffer more. I don't beleive you have a problem with your computer, it's just having a hard time getting enough data to play the video's smoothly.

I have an Acer 5542 laptop. Whenever I watch live streaming video, or YouTube, the video stops every few seconds for buffering to catch up. This is a fast Windows 7 computer with plenty of ram, clean...


The answer to this issue is your cpu, its a turion amd, basically it doesnt have the raw processing power required to render streams. there is no solution to this, other than replacing the laptop. AMD Turion II Ultra mobile processor M600 / 2.4 GHz just doesnt cut it, its not always about the clock speed, but how the unit processes data.

Acer has jerky video


The video is jerky because the rate at which the video stream is being received on the internet is not keeping up with the rate at which the video is being played on the screen by the video player application that you are using. The video player has an incoming video stream buffer and if the amount of video data in it falls below a minimum amount, the player will pause until the incoming stream refills it to some point above the minimum amount. Most video players will have a pause button and clicking it will manually pause the video player so allowing its buffer (or cache) to fill until you click its play button again. The player will have an indicator of how much of the video content has been downloaded into the buffer and if you pause until all the content has been downloaded, clicking play at this point results in a play of the video that will not be jerky.

I just bought this laptop yesterday, and ever since then every time i play download a movie or watch a video on you tube it stops and plays, stops and plays. what do i do?


Hello

OK, this does not have any thing to do with your laptop itself. This is actually due to your internet connection. The videos will stop an play if they are buffered far enough, hence, if the video plays faster than it can buffer, it will stop until is is buffered far enough.

The solution for this problem can be to upgrade your internet connection.

Hope this can be of help, if this was nor what you were looking for, let me know so we can try something else.

Kind regards

Long time buffering videos; video streams freeze


If a streaming video takes a long time buffering from Youtube or another website, it's because your internet connection is slow. If your video freezes up and jitters, that might be your internet connection and/or the video card is working too hard.

Go to this website and run the speed test for the city closest to you and let us know what your connection speeds are (download/upload). This will help us determine if the problem is the internet connection speed or something else:

My online videos skip


Try downloading the videos. Streaming videos (like youtube, metacafe, megavideos, etc. ) can be downloaded. Use Ant Video Downloader in getting the videos off your browser. A free but great tool that works with any streaming sites there is on the web. You don't need to download flv player or codecs to play the video. Ant has its own Player, so as soon as it finished downloading the vids click the Player Button to play them and it will surely not skip.

Videos on internet


Basically, when you try to watch videos through Internet from video hosting websites like Youtube or Google Videos, the videos will be first copied into a temporary location which is also called Buffering  in the computer before playing.
But, if you try to play video directly after opening the link, there will not be enough time available to download and save the video into temporary location(Buffer) because of which it may pause in between while playing.
However, you need to pause the video after opening so that it will be Buffered and then it will be played without pausing.
