My web based videos (you tube for example) play slow and very jerky, pausing and going.

Do you have a fast enough internet connection? Do you gave a fast enough wireless connection?

If you download the whole video yo your hard drive is it still slow and jerky? If not the problem is either a network connection or your wireless csrd

Check your speed here:

Try connecting wireless, then try replacing the network cable, then see if you can try a different router. If it plays well from the hard drive then it is most likely the connection to the Internet somewhere along the line.

Check speed after each test and see what might be the cause of the slowdown.

It sounds like there is a speed difficulty someplace in your download. In a typical installation the video will start to show on monitor as soon as the file starts to arrive. If the arrival speed is too slow, the picture will pause until the download catches up with the display. That is why the above suggestions to measure the speed are so important in locating the problem.
A quick fix is to let the file download, jerks and all, then run the file again. It should be smooth the second time.

Probably a slow or busy pipe.  I usually wait for the download to finish.  Then, play it - it plays from the temps on your hard disk much faster.

Go here in Internet Explorer and update Adobe Flash Player:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Now temporarily force Google Chrome to use the "System" Adobe Flash Player rather than its own built-in "Pepper Flash player" and see if that improves things.

Instructions here:

Make sure you use the "release version of Flash Player" when you get to the link.  It should resolve to this URL:
