Re: Online videos stalling!

That may be largely because of your internet speed. It has a BIG effect of how things load.

Re: Online videos stalling!

Theres two things that could be the problem, and how old your computer isn't one of them.

It could be that your video card isn't powerful enough to process the videos...but since your asking about watching streaming videos (videos online), then its not your video card.

The second cause would be your internet connection isn't fast enough. If there is an option on the site where your watching the videos to switch to a lower bitrate, then I suggest you use the lowest bitrate thats available. If there are no multiple bitrate options, then your either going to have to find a different place to watch videos or learn to live with it.

Re: Online videos stalling!

if its youtube that your worried about, then pause the video for a few mins, then come back to it, and it should be loaded a bit,giving you longer smooth video play.

Re: Online videos stalling!

My internet vids load slow on youtube aswell for some reason. Don't worry just use other websites like www.dailymotion.com
