    On youtube I can play a video at times and it will play just fine. Other times it plays 5 to 7 seconds and the system catches up and it will play another 5 to 7 seconds. This will also happen on the same video that worked fine a few days earlier. Any idea. :confused:

    System is

    Windows 7
    4 Gig of ram
    CPU AMD Quad core 2.6 Gig

    Choppy Internet connection?

    it's youtube, I see a variation of speed from video to video. Most likely they have a batch of servers on a poor connection

    Your system is definitely not the issue. Those specs are enough to play that video smoothly, of course.

    I suspect your ISP, more than anything else. Are you sharing that connection with other computers in the house? Major downloaders?

    I do know that some cable providers treat video viewing like downloading - and decide to throttle back on your speed as a result! :mad:
