Poor network activity is the number one cause of slow video loading. This may be a problem with your network, or it may be caused by your Internet Service Provider being overloaded, which is especially likely during peak usage hours.
Insufficient network bandwidth is also a major reason behind slow video loading. Factors such as a slow network connection, too many services or applications using your local network and too many people using the local network can use up all the bandwidth and leave no data for the video stream to load adequately.
