Sounds like you have a buffering problem. Is your internet slower now than it was before?

Also, play a video from a hard drive, something not online and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you've got a bigger problem than slow internet.

Almost forgot, power cycle your modem and router (assuming you are just running modem-> router -> computer) and see if that helps.

Is it only with 1080 HD videos?

Try 720 or lower.

Mine is choppy (regardless of buffer) in 1080. I chalk it up to my computers lack of power.

Upgrade your flash.

You may have too many other programs running.
You need to let them download before playing, hit pause and buffer them.
Too many other folks are watching the same video.
It wants to pop up a browser or ad and you are blocking popups.
