When I started watching youtube video directly from web browser such as Internet Explorer, I sadly noticed a slow progress bar of the video accompanied with buffering issues, freezing and interruption that eventually stops youtube video to progress and on such occasion I usually tried to help the progress bar to go forward by sliding it little bit forward or cleaning temporary files plus windows registry. And Yes sometimes even these action is not of help, an alternative is to download youtube as flv or as any other format using online tools dedicated to this purpose or by installing a freeware/shareware softwares on the desktop.
Well another option to enjoy youtube is to use a youtube video accelerator that integrates the browser and ease the playback by eliminating the freezing and buffering issues on youtube and on other video sharing sites, a quick search over the internet led me to Leawo video accelerator which is offered in a freeware version with a limited features and for more power there is a pro shareware version.
