    Sourav Gupta,

    if you stop the buffering, you stop the video.

    Buffering means that the video pauses while it is loading. This happens because the video plays faster than your internet connection can stream it to you. Hence the video stops to allow buffering (downloading) until enough material is streamed to your computer to continue the seamless least for a brief moment.
