I have buffering and playback problems when opening a YouTube™ video, how can I get rid of them?
If you experience problems playing your YouTube™ videos, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies. If the video still doesn’t load or work properly, change the quality by choosing a lower resolution from the gear icon.

My YouTube™ video is stuck and will not continue to load. How can I make it work again?
First of all, you should check your internet connection. If you have an unstable connection, chances are you won’t be able to get the best video experience. Another reason for choppy playback might be that an incomplete copy of the video is stuck in your browser’s cache. If this is the case, try clearing your browser’s cache and restart your YouTube™ video.

How to share, embed and link YouTube™ videos
In order to embed a YouTube™ video into another website click the “Share” button from under the video, choose “Embed” copy the text code and paste it into your website. Before doing that, you can choose to customize the size of the video (choose a size that is large enough to show the video but not too large for the bandwidth of your audience), whether or not to include video suggestions or include privacy enhanced mode (the "privacy enhanced" mode has to do with whether or not Google sets a browser cookie for videos when the page has loaded, but nobody has clicked to start playing the video). YouTube™ automatically updates the embed code as you select your preferences, so you won’t have to do this yourself. To share a YouTube video, proceed similarly: click the “Share” button again and choose one of the social channels available in the drop down menu (you can share your YouTube video on Facebook™, Twitter™, Google+, Linkedin™, StumbleUpon™, tumblr™, Blogger™, Orkut™ etc.)
