Through the years YouTube has grown in popularity enormously and watching YouTube videos has become a hobby for all people. Its so addicting that lots of people stay up till wee hours of the morning just to view a common videos. But, I guess most of us have experienced the “annoying times” with YouTube once the video we’re watching keeps on stopping especially whenever we have slow Internet connection. Thinking about a solution, the first thing comes to the mind would be to just upgrade to an increased web connection speed which our ISP offers. Yes, of course, it can really improve the buffering speed. But, will there be any alternative methods on steps to make YouTube to go faster without upgrading to an increased web connection speed?
Well, the clear answer is Yes! By improving the performance of your personal computer, tweaking the browser and also by installing accelerator software, you can make the YouTube videos to load much faster. Let’s begin with Memory…
Upgrading Memory to Increase the Performance of your Computer:
First thing that people have to check when we should make the videos to load even faster is if your PC has enough memory. Its useless to tweak your browser like Mozilla Firefox or to put in Accelerator software if your personal computer is gasping for memory. During the buffering of the web video, your PC has to put certain amount of stream into memory. And if your personal computer doesn’t have sufficient RAM, it must rely on virtual memory which means that your personal computer would need to use the hard drive as a temporary RAM. Obviously, reading and writing data into RAM is even faster compare to hard drive which uses moving-head to see and write data that’s why it will not only increase the buffer speed but in addition affect the overall performance of your PC. So consider upgrading the RAM of your PC. It is advised to go a little higher than the minimum requirements of the operating system. As an example, if your PC runs Windows Vista, it is best if it’s 1GB of RAM for best performance.
Tweaking your Browser:
It can be recommended to tweak your browser to help make the YouTube go faster. If you should be using Mozilla Firefox, you can change a few of its configurations by typing the “about:config” in the address bar then changing a number of the settings that’s regarding pipelining buy 4000 watch hours. The easier way to get this done is by downloading and installing the FasterFox Mozilla Firefox plugin. This plugin automatically tweaks your Mozilla Firefox to speed it down allowing fast loading of internet videos.
Playing the video while its still buffering would only annoy you and would also cause the buffering speed to decrease further. If you should be not that excited to view it, much better if you simply click the Pause button and wait for the loading bar to show completely red which means that it is fully loaded. In this manner, the computer doesn’t need to decode the video and download data simultaneously allowing the buffer speed to go faster thus also letting you watch it the moment possible without interruption.
