Are you using wireless or DSL? Does the video stop/go while the video is buffering? You may want to check your connection speed.

Also, youtube if notorious for collecting spyware,etc., so make sure you have a good software protection.

I suggest that you "google" the precise problem you have. There are reasons why this could be happening.

That is what it does stop/go. I know it is very fast at opening stuff up. It's just this one little problem. Oh yeah, thanks for replying back.

I had someone work on my computer that is very good at installing that stuff and he put me some very good stuff on here to keep me from having all of those problems so i am suppose to be protected in ever way just having problems trying to watch things on you tube.

If the video stops and a message that says "Buffering" comes up ... then it is your connection speed, or YouTube bandwidth is degraded due to multiple downloads hitting their server at the same time. YouTube is slow on my computer as well. The video has to be downloaded like any other file ... once it is download it should play in it's entirety as a local file on your computer.

1.26 MB is pretty good ... that would be like downloading a fairly high quality picture in about a minute...... but if it's 1.26 KB... that isn't so good...:-)
