7 Tips to make youtube videos load faster

Watching youtube videos over a slow internet connection can be frustrating.Most of us have tried different ways to make youtube videos load faster with minimum latency.Some of the methods follows.

1. Opt for youtube feather Beta testing.

Type “youtube feather” in google ,click the first search result and you will be directed to the Opt in page for Youtube feather Beta.

“This is an opt-in beta for “Feather” support on YouTube. The “Feather” project is intended to serve YouTube video watch pages with the lowest latency possible. It achieves this by severely limiting the features available to the viewer and making use of advanced web techniques for reducing the total amount of bytes downloaded by the browser. It is a work in progress and may not work for all videos.”

I have opted in for the Beta testing and found out that it has increased my youtube streaming speed by

1.Reducing the resolution to the lowest(240p)

2.Removing the sharing options below the video

3.Limiting the number of related video suggestions

These are the three obvious changes,there may be other changes too which may reduce the latency of vidoe load.

2.Use the fast Forward option on the YouTube stream. Click on any position along the loading bar and the video will begin to play from there.By using this method you can avoid the needless waiting for the introduction to finish.

3.Click on the desired video, switch to lower resolution version(240p), press pause button and wait for the video to load while you are engaged in other activities.When the full video is loaded click play and enjoy the video

4.Once you have loaded a video, open another window and repeat the same procedure so that the next video will be ready by the time you finish watching the first youtube video.

5.Install speedbit video accelerator and speed up youtube video loading.Speedbit slices the video into several segments and loads all of them together for you to view without interruption

6.Install Internet Download manager and download youtube videos and watch them at your leisure time.We have already posted a tutorial for facebook video downloading, the same rules apply here also.View How to download facebook videos.

7.Install a Firefox addon, youtube downloader and save youtube videos for watching later.There are hundreds of youtube downloader addons in Firefox, select one which allows you to download Youtube videos in your preferred format like MP4,FLV,AVI etc.
