Why does my YouTube video keep stopping?

I don't mean buffering - it just stops at a certain time, just freezes. Even when I refresh the video, it wouldn't stop freezing. Help?

Internet connections can vary depending on how much local traffic is on the network. What may be a fine connection most of the time can suddenly slow down if several of your neighbors sign-on at the same time.

Google purchased youtube, and is in the process of "breaking it" in an attempt to make it "what they want", instead of "what you want/need". (Making it display more of the google-ads and harvest your user information to sell for money. Like facebook does.)

The problem is actually that the "buffer" stops, it thinks the video is "loaded more than is needed to display", because it is not correctly detecting the "actual play position". Thus, it stops loading, stops buffering, and waits for the play-position to "catch-up". However, the play-position is not reported correctly, so... it plays past the "Ok, gimme more" point, up until the end of the buffer. Then the code fails, as it tries to load the next CHUNK, as that is correctly reporting the play position.

Speed has nothing to do with it, nor does browsers... It does this on all browsers, on SOME servers, where this horrible "new google code" has replaced the original "youtube code". I am seeing this more on XP systems, but still on vista and win-7 and tablets too. So I KNOW it is google, not us.

All other video sites play normal. Hulu, Netflix, x-hamster, etc...
