First, videos on websites like YouTube are not streamed, they are embedded on the page. Streaming is when you are watching a video or listening to music as it's being played on the server. Internet radio is a good example.
Next, does every video at YouTube freeze while they are playing or just certain ones? Does this happen at other sites? How long has this been going on? There is so much we don't know.
You may have some setting in your browser that needs adjusting, could be a security setting, not sure. It could have something to do with your video card as well, especially if this was happening before you formatted and reinstalled Windows and it's still happening now.
The errors with downloading, again, could be a security setting. Does this happen with every file you download? What types of files are you downloading and where are you downloading them from? More info we don't know.
Also, it would help to know your system info as well. Read the red text at the top of the page you post on. Every little bit can help.
Hello everyone! As you could read in my topic, my videos keeps stopping in the middle. I noticed it only does it on streaming videos like the ones on youtube. The videos stops in the middle, yet the bar tells me it has been fully streamed. Even so, I tried pressing pause then comming back after 30 min. it does not work. I tried using both Firefox and Internet Explorer, none works.
It continued to do it even after I reformated my drive and reinstalled Windows XP. I also notice I also get errors when I download file, saying they are corupted, could it be linked with my video problem?
I hope someone can help, because I have no clue what to do next...
