How can I make YouTube and other streaming videos play at once?

Shizu November 25, 2011

When I try to watch any video fr0m YouTube or any other video site, it’s taking a long time to come out. But still I have enough internet speed. Also good uploading speed is there.

How can I avoid this problem? The magic is, after all the video will open without any buffering. I feel like it’s downloaded first and spreading.

    Could I just mention one point of interest.  You-Tube offers 360 and 480 which are flash, in addition the HD 720p and 1080p are essentially .mp4's.

    Playing the HD's requires significantly more bandwidth as well as cpu resources.   I have experienced the issues described in the question quite often when viewing 1080p on a dual core 2.6ghz 6gig optimized intel based system with 10mbps internet.

    Considering a 4 minute video can be 200MB and that You-Tube as well a little calculation keeping in mind the difference between Bytes in a file and bits in transmission stream you have to maintain a very significant transfer rate to keep smooth play...

    So try a 360, if that works and 1080 does not you will have an idea where the issue is, if it is not one already mentioned.

    Hello, if you have a half decent video card, you can turn on hardware acceleration.  Try the following:

    -- go to youtube
    -- select a video to play
    -- right click on background of video
    -- select settings
    -- make sure to check mark hardware acceleration
    -- check on global settings
    -- click on advanced tab
    -- under browsing data and settings, click on delete all
    -- under updates, make sure that the check for updates automatically is set
    -- close the settings page
    -- close your browser

    Make sure that your browser is set to clean cache, temporary files at exit.  Also you could download crapcleaner to clean the history, cache, temporary files, cookies, etc.  Install crapcleaner select the stuff you want deleted and once finished restart your computer.  now open browser, go to youtube or any other site where buffering takes a long time and then open the video.  Do you see any improvement or difference?

    first check if you have the latest flash player.
    install and then try again.

    if problem is still there, consdier this points.

    does your computer runs slow over all ? specially the browsers when you open 4 or 5 tabs?
    sometimes it freezes and then plays, meanwhile it has completed some buffering.
    so it will play directly.
    it does not happen every time.
    do you have 1 gb or more RAM ?
    which are the broswers you use?
    use chrome as it is genreally update it self too latest version.
    if you have only 512 RAM, that may be the reason.
