Is anyone else having trouble playing youtube videos?

I've been trying to play youtubes from the youtube site as well as those posted to other sites with the youtube logo on them and they all do the same thing...they play for a few seconds then stop again and again. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thank you but

how do I do that?

That happens from time to time
