    Streaming video or streaming media allows the Web user to avoid waiting to download a large file before seeing the video or hearing the sound. Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream and is played as it arrives. The compression of the video allow it to be played simultaneously. Depending on your choice of media player and the file's compression rate, the time it takes for the video to stream may vary.

    The file is hosted on a server which can "multi-cast" the same file to multiple users at the same time. When you click on the on the video it is partially loaded before you can access it. This is known as “buffering”. Now lets take a look on how to cut down on buffering time, stop slow streaming video and eliminate choppy PC video playback .

    clean up temporary files ,try to reinstall the flash player sometimes it's the cause of issues with streaming videos.check the "response time" where some sites and especially downloads off a good server are much quicker and some are slower.

    Try using speedbit video accelerator it will make it so you are using multiple connections to access the file not just 1. I use high speed internet and was having to wait on YouTube for videos to load/buffer before I installed this and now I am able to watch them without having to pause once for it to buffer. You will need the premium version for the hd vids but for non hd the free version works fine.
