Hi Guys - This is not a BV issue - at least I don't think so!
Does any one have multiple youtube videos on their sites? I have 4 youtube videos on a site I'm building (all on one page) and they are buffering very slowly. Stop and go continuously. I'm thinking it's a youtube issue. It's happening on all computers I've tested it on, (4), in both FF and IE.
At first it was fine, problem started happening 2 days ago. Can't find answers on youtubes help site.
I'm aware that if I let it buffer all the way thru, then play, it will be fine, but that's not what I want for viewers. Ultimately, I will have 10 videos on that page. Any ideas? Anyone with the same problem?
Thanks.

Hi Debi
I'm not sure about U Tube... But I know if you add few seconds of empty frames (no music) at the beginning of an MP3 player there is no stop and start problem.
Hope that helps

Thanks for the info Doug - What I discovered today is that if you disable the 'play in HD' button on the YouTube player, it will play properly. So what good is the HD button, I ask? LOL

Hope It All Works Well For You

Thanks Doug. Once I changed the HD button - all was well!
