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.

When viewing a video such as you-tube, it keeps pausing. What can I do to make videos run more smoothly?


the pausing is nothing bu "buffering" the speed of buffering depends on your internet connection speed.. the faster the internet, the faster the buffering.. however u can improve the speed by clearing the browser cashe (history) n open as less tabs as possible at a time..

You tube videos start and stop


The videos need some time to buffer/load.

This is indicated by the pale red line that is usually in front of the play bar which is the darker red bar.

Pause the video for around a minute for the video to buffer.
Then push play button.

You may need to set the detail down to 240p to increase the speed at which it loads.

WHY YOU TUBE IS GETTING PAUSED IN BETWEEN


Its more than likely due to buffering, your pc has to download so much of a video before it will play. If you have a slower internet connection this really affects streaming media. Best thing to do is start your video, then hit pause and let it buffer up. You will see a faint red line below the video indicating how much of the video is downloaded and ready to view. After you let the video buffer and the bar move to the right some you should be able to hit play and watch your videos without it pausing every few seconds.

Web page giving problems, when playing music from you tube, keeps on pausing


The speed of your Internet connection is not high-enough to download faster than the video-player is "consuming" the data. Press "pause" in your video-player, and wait 30 seconds for more of the download to happen. Then, press "play", to smoothly play what has been downloaded.

You tube always pauses, constantly why?


I must say that the video is so slow in buffering and it is the common problem if the internet connection has a minimal speed and you're playing high quality videos. I suggest you change your subscription that suits your need or lower the quality of the video just refer to its control. If you're downloading, I suggest stopped it for awhile if you want the video will play smoothly.

Stuttering videos on you tube


There could be a number of different problems;
1: Connection issues; is your internet service slow?
2: Processor; what's your processor's clock speed vs the video quality?
3: More RAM could never hurt to fix the problem. My advice to you is to pause the video and let it load entirely / buffer and all that.

Hi, I have an Acer Intel Core2 Quad Q8200


That would ppear to be a matter if internet connection speed as it is playing faster than it can stream the video. You could pause the play back for a min or so to give the buffer time to load or consider upgrading your connection to a faster speed.

It could also be caused by having P2P running in the background as this eats up bandwidth as well if so close it down whils streaming video to give more bandwidth.

On you tube the videos dont play properly, the video clips keep sticking/ pausing the play


Hi,
The situation can be caused ,because of the low download speed that you are getting on your internet. As the youtube is on a far off computer has to fetch it from there and then display it. Thus you see the buffering that happens . Try getting a higher speed on the high speed connection. Other simple fix is when you click on the video to see , click on the pause button for a minute and then click play. This would enable to bufffering to happen in the background

Thanks
