I asked this question before and was told it depends on a few things. The most likely of which is how busy the site is.
I found if you pause the play until the grey line gets considerabley ahead of the black, you can watch uninterrupted

tried clearing all your internet cache? reboot PC daily or leave it on? does it happen when you go to full screen? all youtube videos? pc operating system ? browser version? does it happen on other pc's on the same network? can you try a different web browser (internet explorer/firefox/opera/google chrome) ?

you could also try uninstalling and reinstalling flash player. sometimes flash gets a bit corrupt with respect to changes or updates regarding the browsers used.

The latest version of Flash has all sorts of issues from what I've heard. A lot of people are recommending a rollback to the previous version. Barring that you just have to wait for the next update if that's what is causing the issues.

well, so far, it looks like i fixed it. but now, i cannot find where i fixed it. anyway, there is a place where you can restrict what can be looked at on the net. somehow all of the setting were for very safe. and even though i was only looking at DIY videos. the settings limited them. its working fine now.

I am guessing you got to all via your CONTROL PANEL if you need to get there again. There are a couple ways to access it but easiest is via the Windows globe thingie in the far lower lefthand corner of your screen.

tools
internet options
security tab
click on the internet globe

I believe Chrome uses it's own built in decoders instead of relying on the system installed ones. There is a new version of Flash out this morning that may fix some issues. It probably won't affect Chrome though.

Check your internet speed. Lots of test sites out there.
