    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.

    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?

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