My video stops and does not continue because of buffering.

  • Change your video's resolution. Higher-resolution videos take longer to load than lower-resolution ones. To change your videos' resolution, click the gear icon in the lower right-hand corner of the YouTube video player. Then, click the quality box. The qualities/resolutions on the bottom of the list are lower and will load faster. Progress down the list until you find the highest quality that loads without any buffering.
  • Make sure you aren't downloading anything else when you're trying to load a YouTube video. If you have a slow internet speed, you won't be able to download a file and load a YouTube video.
  • Make sure that your family or friends aren't also trying to load videos or download files at the same time that you want to watch a YouTube video. This will also cause buffering.
