I'm running the latest version of Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, reset safari, firefox, and opera, used OnyX to clean the system up and still when I go to play a video it starts to play and then buffers. Some videos I can click pause, wait a minute, then play but it will keep doing it throughout the video. Oddly enough, YouTube is the only site that doesn't do this.

Edit : Post removed as I misread, thought the problem was only in YouTube . I thought it was the YouTube HTML Trial issue.

Me as well.

Actually, it does it several times within the same video.

I started looking for where to up the memory. But's not in ML.

I have 455GB available on HD. SO its not memory for me there. maybe just internet speed has changed some how.

http://www.speedtest.net/ - If your Down/Up speeds match what your paying for then I wouldn't worry.

Do you have another computer to test video loading on?

As the original Poster I have no problems with Youtube. just other sites with videos. Like Facebook, yahoo, fox news ect.

just went to Disk Utility and did a Repair permission and that seems to work.

Access permissions for files have nothing to do with videos on YT.
