This may be due to a slow internet connection at your end.

When you click on a video, watch the progress bar at the bottom of the screen just above the YouTube PLAY and the MUTE button.

As the video is first loading onto your computer from the internet, the really LIGHT RED progress bar will move steadily to the right until it reaches the far side, which then means the video is fully downloaded. This bar will move at different speeds depending on the size of the file and your system's and internet connection's download speed.

As the video is actually playing, the DARK RED progress bar and the white circle will move to the right as well showing you what part of the video timeline is currently playing. When this dark red bar and white circle reaches the far right hand side, then that is the end of that video and it finishes playing.

If your white circle and dark red progress bar catches up to the light red progress bar, then the video will have to pause temporarily in order to let more of the video download before it can play it. This can happen often if you have a slow system or a poor internet or wireless connection.

One thing you can try in order to avoid this is to pause the video at the start and wait until the light red progress bar gets all the way to the end before you start playing the video again. That way you won't be trying to play a part that hasn't been downloaded yet and the video won't have to stop halfway through.

Good luck.

Probably because the stream from the source to your pc cannot deliver fast enough. you could try waiting until the red line under the video has gone all the way across before playing it.

Youtube downloads the song in the background as you listen to it. If this process, called buffering, happens too slowly, then youtube will pause.
Make sure you aren't downloading anything in the background, otherwise you'll need to load the page, pause the video, and let it sit for a few moments before playing. Getting a faster connection can solve this problem.

How do you make a night core video by yourself


The type of music that started as a subgenre of trance and is still considered so by many people. Trance fans usually call is happy hardcore. However nightcore fans prefer to not be associated with trance and don't like the idea of naming a "nightcore" as anything else.

Nightcore is characterized by a sped-up melody (sometimes), fast rhythmic beat (usually), and ALWAYS higher than normal pitch. Almost all nightcore music are original songs nightcored (remixed into nightcore) by nightcore fans.

Very popular is a belief that nightcore is a nickname of a person who remixes the songs. In reality anyone who knows how to use a computer can nightcore a song and upload it on Youtube.

"Do you like trance?"


"So why d'you listen to it all the time?"

"I don't!"

"But even right now you're listening to happy hardcore!"

"It's called nightcore!!"

    How do I get it to play the entire song?

    Its because the songs are set to shuffle every 10 seconds. Click on a song (any song will do) hit pause so it stops playing. Click on the gear icon at the top right of the screen. Scroll down the list to "Advanced" then make sure "Replay Interva" is set at 1. If it already is I would contact Visual Land Support witch can be found here:

    My videos keep stopping inthe middle of the song

    If it stops and go, it is due to the speed of your Internet connection. You might want to start the song and pause it for a little bit, and play. This way you gives your pc/laptop enough time to download the song so that you won't have the stopping issue. Good luck

    sounds like your internet bandwidth has slowed down. Make sure you dont have anything downloading in the background, and if you are sharing your internet with other people, such as family, check that no-one else is busy downloading while you're trying to listen to the songs.
