So if you have not downloaded the whole video up front and this pause happens when you are near the end or close to the end of the part of which you have downloaded it is normal. That is jsut the video getting the next part and buffering it.
For a completely seamless experience, pause the download. Get the full video first. then play it back. Other than that you will always experience it. Even if you have a 20MB download speed. That is the flaw in the streaming video technology.
No I've waited for it to completely load (or download, whatever) and it still will do it. I THINK it's actually a firefox problem. I've tested a couple videos with Internet explorer, and they all work fine, but the same videos will stutter a couple times in firefox.

Im planning on getting a new cpu, motherboard and 2gb of ddr2 ram pretty soon hopefully, so if it's just that my computer is out of date, this should help.
