4 GB RAM is sufficient. The video buffering you describe is often related to Internet speed.

YouTube buffers on my 4 GB system. I have Verizon DSL. When I'm connected to a FIOS Internet network, buffering does not occur.

See what results Speedtest comes up with - - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Also, clean out temp files -
Defrag HDD -

This problem occurs when the video playback rate is faster than your Internet connection. To make watching a video possible the player fills a buffer and plays it until it empties. It then pauses until the Internet connection can refill the buffer. Normally the only solution is a faster Internet connection. It is also usually possible to pause the playback until the video is completely downloaded. Of course this may take some time.

I have a relatively slow Internet connection and see this most of the time.
