This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.

My dvd player tray does'nt open when it should and when i insert a disc to play, it only plays for a few seconds then it stops but the disc continues to spin


Hello
The laser pickup unit of your DVD player may either be faulty or dusty. Just put in a cleaning disc into it and play it for at least three times, and check. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your device should be replaced with same type and number. Just check the loading belt too. OK.

U tube videos keep stopping


If it is pausing and then playing again after a few moments, this is just a process called 'buffering'. It is allowing the player to download more of the video before it begins playing again. To eliminate this, pause the video at the beginning and wait for the red bar in the play track to fill all the way. This indicated that the video had completely loaded.
If the video will not play past a certain point, reload the page. Sometimes if a network connection refreshes during a video download, this issue will occur. If it happens continually, make sure you have a steady network connection.

Videos stop and start. How to fix


It is called buffering. The video's tend to play and stops at some point and then continue playing because it is still loading the video. Just wait for the video to load completely before playing. You will notice this thru the red indication bar align with the play button. If the loading does not finish, try reloading the webpage by pressing F5.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Having problems with playing video's on my computer via websites (news page etc) will work for @ 10 seconds then pause for @ 30 seconds then work for 10 seconds and continue to repeat this process I have...


Videos on websites need time to load before they will play seamlessly. When you first load the video, pause it and wait for a few minutes. You may see a bar loading across the part of the window that shows how much has loaded. This will take a few seconds or a few minutes depending on how fast your internet connection is.

When playing video on my laptop, it will play 30 to 40 seconds, then appears to be spooling or loading or something - is quiet and stops video/audio -- almost looks frozen, takes another 30 to 40 seconds,...


its not settings on it that will help you fix the problem is the processor if you don't have one fast and capable enough for you to play video games in it, it will not play them effectively and this will keep going, you need to buy a better processor
