    That happens to me a lot, even though i have fast internet too. Its just takes a longer time for the video to buffer, depending on the quality, sound, and picture.

    Hope this helps.

    I found a free download of Adobe Falsh Player here

    You need to install the latest version of Adobe flash player to watch all the videos online, like on youtube, facebook and much more.

    Best of luck!

    Its not just the problem of your computer. IT can be caused by many people logging on to watch youtube at the same time, and in the process corrupts the server and causes it to lag. That happened to me many times before =)

    I know the feeling. It does it to me too, unfortunately high speed doesn't matter with online videos- they load at their own speed. So to answer your question, the connection sometimes doesn't matter with stuff like streaming video because video loads slow no matter what.

    Source(s): I have DSL and a couple years of high speed internet experience.

    other people on your network? that slows things down

    are you downloading anything besides watching the videos?

    restart your computer, that may help... maybe its a glitch in the matrix

    will you answer my open question?;_ylt=Auiob...

    download youtube files , and then watchem offline... as soon as you see a file it keeps for a while in the temporal internet files , copy them from there to somewhere else ... and ALAS!!

    1. Use Opera browser, it will load faster and smoother, and re-install latest flash.


    2. It could be due to slow connection or high traffic.

    Try watching it during off peak hours, the video will be smoother.

    Or you could watch it offline... try using 'zillatube' .

    It works very well...
