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.

Look for a U-tube video that you can watch step by step and pause when needed. Watch the entire video first, then replay and pause for your repair job.

When watching You Tube it stops and starts again and again


Hi,

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

If this is happening when you are viewing the videos from an internet site then the problem isn't with your laptop, it's with the internet connection - too slow.
Either get closer to the wireless router (or use a LAN connection instead of wireless) or get a speed upgrade from your ISP.

Watching videos on the internet


This is normal. There is a minimum buffering time, and depending on your internet speed, it can be a few seconds or a few minutes before the video is loaded into memory to be watched without interruption. Just put it on pause when it starts loading.
