    Common Sense would say that my Internet is slow. But my internet is the same speed as it's always been. Nothing has changed other than YouTube keeps not playing the videos.

    You'll have to give us more information then just videos stop. Have you tried a different web browser? Does the same video stop at the same point every time? Do all videos stop?

    This is on my Android phone. I've only tried Google Chrome but I'm downloading Firefox right now.

    The videos load but won't start.

    I downloaded Firefox. It still didn't play but had a message saying "if video doesn't start shortly restart your device."

    So that's what I did and now it's working even on Chrome. I still have the same three bars of reception that I had when it wasn't working. So it's working for now but I don't know what caused the problem in the first place.

    You should physically restart your phone at least once a week.
