Windows 7: Youtube Videos, buffer and then stop or dont buffer at all

Youtube Videos, buffer and then stop or dont buffer at all

Hi all,

I have a problem that is becoming increasingly irritating...

Everytime i try to watch a video, for example a youtube video in awesomer webpage, the video starts loading, loads about 5-10% of the video and then starts playing. Then the video reaches the buffer, it stops for another 20sec - 3 min, buffers some more, or it may go and start buffering normal, untill the end of the clip.

What is going on? This happens regardless of the browser and regardless of the chosen quality of the clip.

Is there any setting that will allow me to buffer the whole video before playing, or at least to not stop buffering?

Thank you
Dionisis Falireas

You might pause the video after playing it for 2 seconds and let it buffer. The white line that appears along the red bar shows how much it has buffered. The longer the white line, the more it is buffered.

Aritra 2116,

no matter how long I pause the video it will not buffer anything more. All i can do is watch this piece, then wait (sometimes over a minute wait), it suddenly buffers another 5%-10% then stops again. The same story goes on untill the end of the clip.

Its not a matter of broadband speed. I have a 10Mbits transfer speed, and this is happenning regardless of the video quality.

Might be a storage folder size issue, for internet explorer ?
Right click the video and click on Settings what is the slider set on ?
If it's all the way to the left drag it to the right,
