Youtube videos don't play on my computer, why?

Actually no videos of any kind will play.  The video and sound are choppy and it stops and starts every 4 to 5 seconds.  I have windows xp on a new laptop.  It's never played videos since I bought it 2 weeks ago.  First I thought my connection to the internet wasn't strong enough but even when I am plugged in it doesn't play.  Any advice?

I have the same problem and i do not know why but with youtube, if you open and new video and then pause it and let the video download and then press play once it has downloaded, it should be OK.  It is still annoying.

Any excuse not to study!

Youtube videos,has not been playing good for about a month,every video you click on,seems like it is no longer available.Since they have been in talks with hollywood,most videos have been stopped.Thats also why myspace videos are not playing either,most are linked from youtube.So there is nothing wrong with our computers.

you can also use this scan tool,to check what files are will speed up videos and internet did mine.check it out below.
