This happens all the time to me, on my laptop, on my desk top at the house, and my desk top at the office. Example: Video is 6 minutes long, quality is 360p. I press play, the video plays for 10 or 12 seconds, the gets hung up. I press pause to allow it to buffer. I work on something else for a few minutes, or leave my desk to go do something else. Come back in 5 minutes, and the video has stopped buffering up altogether. I press play, and begin to watch the portion that has loaded, say, two minutes worth, and as I do the remainder of the video begins to load again. BUT my real-time watching of the video once again catches up with the buffering point, and it hangs up again... and the process repeats. I've noticed that it does this regardless of the quality setting in most cases. I'm not complaining. Heck, I'm still thrilled to death to have almost an endless amount of what were once considered "rare" music and other videos at my beck and call now. Just think about where we've come from in the past 10 years alone. I'm just wondering why it does this. In my mind, I should be able to open two or three videos, press pause on all of them and allow them to load completely, the watch them uninterrupted by buffering.
