    Anyone else out there have problems viewing videos on their computer. It starts playing and then stops and loads a little then stops and loads etc. It is so annoying alot of the time I catch maybe one sentence and it stops and I have to wait etc. Any suggestions???

    your computer might be running slow. I would let it load completely before I tried to watch it.

    pause the video while it loads then when you hit play it will/should play without stopping...the pause button is usually a circle with two vertical lines in it.

    My pc does this too. It's so annoying but I do what the others have suggested. I just wait till it's completely loaded then I hit "play".

    I just played a video and paused it in the beginning and let it load completely. I then hit play and it worked!! I tried pausing it before and then playing and then it still wouldnt play all the way through. Thanks so much for your help!!!!!

    I had trouble when we had to use an air card to get the internet. It wasn't fast enough to let it load and play. There'e no cure unless you can get DSL or cable. It would take 30 minutes to do something I normally did in 5.

    Your computer might be getting low on memory. Ours did that too and then hubby installed a new hard drive. Then it worked way lot better!!!

    I had that same problem until I changed to another internet provided and got a faster connection. I used to have to pause the video too until it had fully downloaded

    I have the same problem and I'm reluctant to even open
    any of them anymore. Would love to know what to do
    about it.

    We have the same problem so we don't watch while it's downloading, but wait and replay it when it's done.

    You probably have dialup, and that's what takes so long. If you had high speed internet it would come through real quick. I'm in the same boat as you. The phone company says that high speed on their line does not come out as far as I live in the country, yet they advertise a life time fee for phone service and high speed internet in our phone bills. You figure!!!!!!!! It makes md so mad!!!!!!!

    I used to have that problem to but now it seldom happens since I got DSL. Like others have said, it's more than likely your internet provider, esp if you have dial-up. And it does help to delete your temporary files and run a defragment to free up some space on your hard drive. I have my computer set to do that automatically once a week.
