In order to get videos from U tube to display with out stopping I have to reload the file, otherwise the cache stops loading and the video stops. Happens on most of them, even low resolution.
It does the same on all Browsers on 3 computers, 2 on Windows 7 and one on XPpro Sp3.
Broadband speed is 13-15 Mbps.
Why?

Sounds like a modem prob if it happens in all browsers. Ive read theyre not the most reliable modems around

I think the Genius may have a few problems, pity! It costs $30 a month less and I get 10gb more for less money. Phone quality is better than before and speed is up to 13Mbps after years of 2.3Mbps. The Genius also runs very cool.

is it only You tube having problems ???

Try going to this page http://www.funny-games.biz/cartoon/ load up any flash see if you have the same problem, if you do make sure your flash player is up to date - out of date flash will cause problems on some sites ( you tube especially).

Problem with any small self starting video clip. Those that cache first are Ok.

mum says she's noticed youtube being slow the last few days/week.
we're on orcon, and i'd believe it. normally dl's go as fast as / faster than playing, but there was alot of loading involved last night. and that's only 360p.

What about clips on DailyMotion (http://www.dailymotion.com/), Vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/) or other similar sites?

These clips work well, as does TVNZ. Only U-tube is the problem.

Just something to try on you tube (as an experiment) - may have no effect at all, as this fix is usually if the video doesn't play in full screen , but may also work -- open a video, right click it, settings, Bottom left is a small tab with a monitor - click that - untick "Enable Hardware Acceleration"
