Answer the questions in response 1.

What type of internet connection are you using ?

Dial-up, e.g 56kbps,
or DSL / ADSL high speed
or cable high speed
or what (e.g. a USB adapter that connects wirelessly to a cell phone tower's service) ?

If you're using a high speed DSL or ADSL, or cable connection, for the device you are connecting to, are you using a wireless network adapter to connect to it,
or are you using a network cable connection to connect to it?

If you can download the video and it plays fine on your computer, you have a problem with your connection to the internet, or with your wireless adapter's signal strength.

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model, or at least the model, of your mboard.

If you have a generic desktop system, tell us which CPU you have.

Tell us how much ram you have installed.

XP comes with Internet Explorer 6.x but most web pages no longer support IE 6 properly.
YouTube videos do not work properly in IE 6.
If you still have IE 6 you should install IE 8.

Even if you don't use Internet Explorer you should have IE 8 installed. The files that are installed for it include files that are not specifically for the IE browser itself that other internet browsers benefit from.

To find the IE version, start up IE, click on Help, then on About Internet Explorer..

Thanks for the CHEERS.

".......D-link router which has a phone type connector"

You probably have a DSL or ADSL internet connection.
You have either a router that is connected to a separate high speed modem, or a combo router / high speed modem (standalone routers do not have a telephone jack).

I have a ADSL internet connection .

Your DSL or ADSL internet connection reliability depends directly on the amount of electric and electronic noise that is being picked up on the phone line between where the high speed modem is and the nearest telephone exchange, and on how far away the telephone exchange is.

I have frequent connection speed problems because of line noise.

A high speed modem of any type usually does NOT reset itself to a faster connection speed after whatever caused a poor connection speed has gone away.

When your connection speed becomes poor, you need to restart your high speed modem, or your combo router / high speed modem.
If it has a switch, turn it off, turn it on.
If it doesn't have a switch, unplug the DC power cord from the device by pulling on it's plug, not the cord, plug it back in.
Wait a short time until the leds on the front of the device indicate you have a connection to the internet.

Your connection speed will then be much better, if whatever caused the problem has gone away. .

"....I have high speed internet connection 100.0mbps cable usb to-D-link router..."

100 mbps or 1000 mbps is the max speed of the network cable connection between your computer's network port and the network port on the router, not the speed of your internet connection.
You sometimes see a balloon message with that figure pop up in your taskbar for that connection, or if you hold your cursor over the icon there for the wired network adapter you'll see that figure.

If you suspect your internet connection is poor, use an internet speed test on the web.
E.g.
I use the internet speed tests here:
http://www.toast.net

The max speed you get will vary depending on which web site, which speed test, which server the test is using, how busy the server is, and on what is between your computer and the server on the internet.
You typing CHEERS may indicate you're not in North America - you'll probably get the highest speeds from a server in your own country.
(I'm in Canada - I choose a server on that site that's in Canada) .

It's not all that important what max speed the tests yield - you just need to determine whether it's speed is poor or not.
.....

Some routers or combo router / modems have both a USB port and wired network ports.
No drivers for the router or combo router / modem need to be installed for a network cable connection, but usually you MUST install drivers in Windows for the router for the USB connection in order for you to be able to connect to the router via a USB cable.
If you have both a network cable and a USB cable from the same computer plugged into the router or combo router / modem, if you haven't installed drivers for the router's or combo router / modem's USB connection, the USB connection probably isn't working.
