I would like to watch some movies and videos on my computer, but I notice that the film or video stops and re-buffers every few seconds, and it's really frustrating and annoying. How do I handle this problem? Is it a fault of the site itself, or my computer?

I should mention that this doesn't happen with YouTube videos, but it does happen with some sites offering full-length films and the like.

Thanks for any help and/or suggestions!

   That happens because your internet connection is not keeping up with the speed of the video.  If you have good internet speeds, the problem could be that the website that has the video is slow or that it is a busy time of day.
   One way around this is to pause the video and wait (go get a cup of coffee).  Most players will continue to download (stream) the video while it is paused.  Many players indicate this by showing a progress line that shows the progress of the streaming.  When the streaming gets far enough ahead, you can play the video and there will not be any stopping.
