When viewing U-Tube videos online, it always starts and play for about
1-2 seconds and the stops to reload. This keeps up that way and some times it will play for a couple more seconds then stop and reload, this goes on for a long time, etc. it has played for up to a couple minutes after hours of reloading ?

Is this a RAM problem ?

Quite possibly, if you still only have 256MB Ram.

I have 2.5GB and have never had that problem. :thumbsup:

Well Old Buddy, . .not exactly, I have 512, and I'm sure most of it is used up or gets used up,

the thing is would you believe this Compaq Presario 4403, purchased apx. 2002, maxs out at

500MB RAM, . .

I have a DELL Inspiron here that I guess I could start up, I am believing that it can handle;

Q: How much memory can my computer handle?

A: 1024MB.

PER;

I'll try to make that happen, but it might takes $ome time, . .

Man your a Lucky Powered Up-Devil ! Big Time RAM.

Are you referring to the video buffering? If so, it is your connection speed that is to be blamed.

Have you checked for similar symptoms using other Internet browsers? Firefox, Opera, Chrome?

Is this a RAM problem ?

No.
I have an old HP omnibook with 256MB of system memory and it handles YouTube(videos) just fine.

Started with 512MB in 2003, but required more, for ease of video editing.

Your problem reminds me of the horrendous delays under the old dial-up.

Go with ReviverSoft, after all, he is a BC Advisor. :thumbsup:

^ Ah yes, video editing is a good enough reason to upgrade the system memory. :thumbsup:

I am using Firefox, but it has been awhile since I've tweaked it, and it has changed,

( upgraded ), versions,

Yep, I have the old dial up,

I'll check into the buffering etc. and let you know, . . don't hold your breath, but thanks much

for getting me pointed in the right direction.

You have dialup and you're wondering why videos won't play correctly?

It's because dialup...well(trying to put this nicely)....SUCKS.

Seriously, you're not going to be able to do anything major, especially flash on dialup..

Ha, that explains it!
Don't bother checking for the buffering, it would continue to do so in all browsers.

Bottom-line: Your connection is SLOW by today's standards and is inadequate for continuous playback of videos. So the video playback will pause every now and then, to load the next bit(part).

If you fancy continuous playback, I suggest pausing the video right after it starts, wait for it load completely and then playback the video.

OR get a .7 ~ 1Mbps+ Internet connection. :thumbsup:
