Well considering your internet blocks you from "The pit" i think your internet gives you a few problems other than youtube :P.

let the video buffer first, it stops playing when the playback plays faster than the video can load. (if the little circle catches up to the end of the red line)

Are you using Internet Explorer, or something else (Firefox, Safari, Opera)? If you're using IE, get Firefox. If you're using Firefox, I don't know what to tell you. Also what kind of connection do you have (dial-up, DSL, cable, satellite)?

Couple of ideas (I'm an IT guy by trade, btw).

1) Get Spybot Search & Destroy (for spyware/adware elimination)

To get a FREE copy of the software navigate to:

2) Get the latest Flash Player plug-in for IE

To get the latest Flash Player navigate to:

Just my .02
