MacBooks forum


You Tube videos constantly stop & restart.

How can I get YouTube videos to run without constant stopping and starting themselves ? I'm using MacBook Pro with OSX Mountain Lion and Safari. (This happened also using Windows on a PC but is much more constant with the Mac.) Thanks.

Then it sounds like a slow connection. Changing machines rarely fixes that.
Tell all about the connection.

Thanks so much for your reply. I called my ISP to determine my connection speed.
They said it was less than 1mb and sold me an increase to 3mb. Won't know if that
will fix it until I receive the new modem, but I'm hopeful. I appreciate your willingness
to help a stranger !

DSL 640 or 1M is a little low.

About all you can do is pause the video and hope the buffer fills during the pause and then play later.
