Also, are you sure she is letting the video load enough? If the video hasn't fully buffered and she is trying to watch it then it is going to be jumpy and stop and start. Is her connection quick enough?

Thanks Liam, but I think it'S not a browser problem and for the connection.. no problem there either. Maybe it's a bad preference in quicktime or flash...

BTW one other of my friend have the same problem with a 300mhz imac...maybe it's the video card that is not fast enough???

It's a combonation of the CPU and Video Card. My 333Mhz iMac with 6Megs VRAM jerks very bad on You Tube. So does my Pentium II 300Mhz IBM Thinkpad with XP and 512Megs RAM.
