How To Watch Videos Online Without Them Stopping And Starting


I get a lot of people asking me how they can watch online videos without them stopping and starting all the time.

First, it helps to understand why they stop and start. Depending on various factors, including your internet speed, it can take a while for videos to download. Often you’ll start to watch a video but you’re viewing it quicker than it can download.

So … simply press ‘play’, then pause and give it a minute or two (longer for very long videos) while it downloads.

Then press ‘play’ again and you should be able to watch it nice and smoothly.

    i been doing that and it works for like a minute and then it starts stopping and going again 🙂

  • Donna-Marie says:

    Kai, it sounds like the video is still downloading. Try pausing it for longer to give it time to fully download. 🙂
