    Does anyone know why when on You Tube, it plays some video then clocks and then plays and then clocks all the time. It does this on my DROID, My computer at home and work, and my kids Ipod Touches, any ideas, and is anyone else seeing this?

    Thanks.

    Do you mean viewing a video online? Its called buffering, essentialy its just downloading more of the video, a buffer, so that playback can be more seamless.

    You get less of this with the faster internet you can use.

    Yes Viewing the video.
    I realize it was buffering, however it never used to happen before, on my computer ( I use Cable/ RR service) and on my Droid, usually at home it is using wifi. All of the sudden it is happening on all my computers etc, thought maybe it was an issue with You Tube? Guess not.. m, maybe a problem with my stuff?

    No, it could be Youtube. I notice that happening on my home computers every so often.

    It will be a problem with your isp most likely. Can't offer much without more info, depends on a lot of things, such as their own problems, or possibly them throttling your usage.
