Have you found that when you're watching/loading a video, it will load at an uneven rate? I'm talking about the indicator showing how much has been loaded. Which is not the same as how much has been played.

Sometimes when I pause a video in the middle, it will NOT keep loading. I wonder if it's optimized to load just enough, to stay ahead of where you are. And then it will inch forward again once I start playing again.

Whenever I run a speedtest it always seems okay - maybe it's because of load or the algorithm they use. I have a very modest DSL connection.

I generally play a little bit of a video and then I drag it back and start over. That makes it less likely for it to stall in the middle.

Sometimes I'd like to pause a Youtube video so that it loads all the way, and then watch it.

Unfortunately, sometimes when I pause, it stops loading. And then it starts loading again when I start playing again.

There should be a button to load the entire video first. Then you can play it being sure it's all there.
