Two choices

In reply to: upload speed low

You have two choices

1: Buy a faster Internet connection
2: Pause the video until it has finished buffering, then play it back

I know that problem

It is never wrong to download the latest adobe flash player.
I can be a reason why you have some lags but mostly it is because of your too slow internet connection.

another reason could be that youtube has lags - and youtube has lags pretty often... sometimes i cannot even load a video file.
