Usually caused by a slow connection, or too many people trying to use your section of the Network at the same time (Contention Issue)

This is most likely to be a bandwidth issue, and there's not much you can do about it. YouTube serves more than 2 billion videos every day, and last year it consumed more bandwidth than the entire internet used in 2003.
