    Why is Flash Player constantly buffering?

    Well, about two weeks ago, I reformatted my computer. So I reinstalled everything and Firefox and IE. But when I want to watch a streaming video, or other process requiring buffering screening of the video, I have a problem: The buffering stops randomly in an area of the video (this may very well be the first few seconds, or not done at all). I thought that it may be a problem with the FireFox, so I tried with IE 7, always the same problem. I then suspected that the problem is related with Adobe Flash Player, but I have the latest version. I just want to know why Flash Player is constantly buffering.

    I am also facing similar problem, when buffering the video stops and I refreshed the page to restart the buffer, the video fails to load even more. I then thought about the fact that it could come from my connection, and after several bandwidth test I do not fall under special problem. I browsed a bit on the net to solve my problem, but that does not help me a lot.

    I have a problem with my videos on Youtube, the bar buffering red on YouTube begins to load and stops based on odd-sized videos more or less in the middle or the beginning I tried to wait 30 minutes and nothing happened. It is quite irritating and I do not want to use software to download videos one by one.

    I was also facing similar problem, well I solved problem by myself after three days of battle, I will explain anyway maybe it will help someone. So I called Telecom after three counselors and 45 minutes of communication they have finally found the problem was the firewall that my livebox so I put at least settings there and I have solved the problem.

    In fact the solution that is given in the reply did not work. Then in desperation after I formatted my computer, it did not change and I decided to circumvent the problems since the problems are characterized by instability of a fluid connection and long I use to download free download manager to the video buffer I use various software to download and when a page does not load completely I update as often as possible. In short this does not solve the problem but so far nobody has managed to help me so I do as I can.

    I have exactly the same problem as you! No "big" download never ends. It does not come from my connection because all other ordis download properly (they are all in wifi). I tried disabling the firewall without success. No viruses on the horizon. Even after that an analysis of spyware nothing. Whatever the software and the type of download, the block to a random percentage, but often after few MB. If you found a solution, let me know!
