Slow video playing -help please

Hi - my daughter tried to show me something on YouTube but was so frustrated with the constant stopping after a few seconds of play....then it would start... stutter along and stop and start again - that she gave up and asked me how I put up with it! Well I hope i dont have to if anyone can help me speed things up! I have a basic laptop running Vista. Thanks

I think it's just a popular YouTube video with too many people accessing it at the same time. You could try pausing the video until it's fully loaded before playing it.

And possibly your BB speed download as provided by your ISP quite apart from heavy traffic which of course can be a factor, make sure you have enough memory too.
