Used to play as soon as I clicked on them. Now though, they play for a few seconds then quit and 'buffer'....
PLEASE help or I can't watch the awesome videos you guys post on here sometimes.

I believe that the change is not in Youtube. It is a change in Adobe Flash. They changed that flash works in IE and Firefox. I had to disable it to get Youtube and GLP to work decently.

i think youtube changed it so that you don't download the whole video if you pause it. you just get a small amount.

so if it's a 10 minute video and you pause at the start, maybe it will just download 1 minute. if you watch the first minute, it downloads the next minute. the old behaviour of downloading the whole video while paused doesn't happen any more.

they probably did it to reduce bandwidth usage on their servers, of people downloading whole videos which they never watched.
