Because most likely you have crabby Internet speed. Youtube knows this speed and sends you the proper resolution file WITHOUT buffering but you can override this auto-sensing, on my browser is the engine cog icon, but buffering will occur. Don't be afraid to play with the buttons, nothing is gonna blow up.
