I still have no idea what could be the cause of your problem, but I wonder if it has something to do with this:

Little big thing about /tmp

/tmp is now mounted on a very small tmpfs with nodev,noexec,nosuid options by default for greater security. Some exotic programs that insist on writing to /tmp may fail to run and they should be fixed upstream. Writing to /tmp is bad, and you should not use any software that behaves like this.

Mind you, two of my laptops have SL 64-bit Xfce installed and don't exhibit your problem.

I'm just playing YouTube videos now using the Chromium browser in the Live environment of a SL 32-bit GNOME LiveDVD booted inside VirtualBox, and it works fine. Have you guys looked in any of your log files to see if there are any clues? Look in ~/.xsession-errors, /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if there are any error messages around the time that the problem occurs.

I think I might have run into this issue yesterday as well. The machine it was running on wasn't anything special. AMD Phenom 2 X4, integrated AMD HD3000 graphics running the open source drivers with hdmi audio enabled.

I'll attempt to grab logs when I'm home with a chunk of free time next.

For reference, I was just using youtube to listen to audio and it would stop playing around the 18 minute mark. Skipping ahead to about 22 minutes and it would start working again.

I've just noticed the following recent article (April 5, 2013), which seems to suggest that the cause is your ISP:

How to make YouTube videos load faster on Windows (XP, 7, 8, Vista), Mac OS X, and Linux [Guide].

He's saying that the following will help:

- Open a Konsole/Terminal window and log-in as root user.

- Enter the following commands:

Code: Select all
iptables add reject src-ip 173.194.55.0/24 in
iptables add reject src-ip 206.111.0.0/16 in

- Close Terminal.

If you ever want to remove the rules you just created, open a Konsole/Terminal window and log-in as root user, run the command iptables list and note the reference numbers for the two rules you created. Then run the command iptables delete [REFERENCE NUMBER] with [REFERENCE NUMBER] being replaced with the reference number for the first command; then do it again for the second command.

I have not tried the above myself as I don't have a problem, but you might like to give it a try and report back on whether or not it makes a difference.

The buffer will suddenly reset without any provocation, and then the video will abruptly end and go to the next video in the playlist (almost as if I was disconnected from the net.)


Hi all !!! I have this same behaviour on diferent browsers, my main browser is Firefox, latest flash from weekly too.
Chromium doesn't has any different treatment on videos. My discovery was at least pretty simple is you investigate just how does buffering being write data on tmpfs.

Maybe someone more experienced could do some advice on this. But after doing some research loading Flash videos, on several tabs normal mode and incongito mode proved to fill up /tmp

Code: Select all
gabi@6481 ~ $ df -h
S.ficheros     Tamaño Usados  Disp Uso% Montado en
/dev/sda2         15G   8,9G  5,1G  64% /
none             1,5G  1016K  1,5G   1% /run
none             1,5G   2,3M  1,5G   1% /dev/shm
udev              10M      0   10M   0% /dev
cgroup_root       10M      0   10M   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sda3        125G   103G   21G  84% /home
tmpfs            1,5G   2,3M  1,5G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs            100M   8,0K  100M   1% /tmp  #Pretty low space in order to buffer videos


On the tmp partition there is allocated only 100MB of space. After being loading maybe 3 videos from different providers (Youtube, and others non-youtube related) this 100MB will be filled up pretty fast, and then failed or buffer was erased sometimes.

My suggestion is to enlarge just a little tmp partition maybe to 512MB. That just worked pretty well on my 2 PCs (in my signature you could see specs, "nothing special" piece of hardware).

Editing my fstab (yours should be different)
Code: Select all
gabi@6481 ~ $ cat /etc/fstab

# Created by anaconda on Sat May  4 02:00:16 2013

tmpfs           /tmp              tmpfs   noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=512M 0 0     # Here was size=100M


I had 100MB on fstab, changed to 512MB, restart and those changes has been positive until now.

Regards and if you need some help i will be arround here. :D

As Fitzcarraldo says, did you checked on those logs with a tail to it when it happens?

PS: After doing /tmp "fix" i had no problem on buffering.

tmpfs "fix" do not help me.
I have 2GB of tmpfs and all free:
tmpfs 2,0G 4,0M 2,0G 1% /dev/shm


The only "error" (warning) i see is in: ~/.xsession-errors
(exe:23909): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead
