  • Why do online videos sometimes pause or stop during play?

    I have DSL and there are days when videos keep pausing every couple of seconds and other days when they play fine.  I've been perusing YouTube lately and some days I have no trouble but other days I can't stand to watch.  Is it my computer or server or does everyone experience this?  It is very annoying when it happens!

    It is buffering when it does that. It is not your computer doing that.

    Hey BD-

    I used to have the problem all the time before went went w/ DSL.

    I can recall the term they used but it was like the video would run, then it would pause and I'm not sure --play catch up somehow.  I do wonder if it's more YouTube's fault or if the video you're watching is being view by many at once??That's just a silly guess tho!!

    IT'S A PRIVILEGE DENIED TO MANY.

    I understand the buffering thing as I get that when I am just playing music but I wonder why I have good days and bad days with it.  At least it's not my computer (Thank you, Nikey!)

     

    Renee, I didn't think about a lot of people viewing it at the same time.  That makes sense but I wonder if a whole bunch of people are viewing the same Moody Blues video from 1970 that I am at 2:00 in the morning...LOL!
