YouTube

Guest Post by: Shankar Ganesh all over from Technology Blog

Watching videos have become more of a usual job than a frenzy time passing hobby nowadays, yet with low connection speeds things are only turning sad. Videos need to be buffered, that leads to some amount of loading time leaving you deserted for moments.

It’s time you take some action to make YouTube Videos to load faster. Here are 3 tips for you:

1. Use SpeedBit Video Accelerator

If you frequently watch YouTube videos, you can get rid of slow loading times and make them load faster with the help of a tool called SpeedBit Video Accelerator.

SpeedBit Video Accelerator can make YouTube videos load faster by taking care of buffer problems, and so called video interruptions. Additionally, the SpeedBit Video Accelerator application also allows you to search for videos. Bookmarking favourite videos is also possible.

Make YouTube Videos load faster with SpeedBit

It can not only make YouTube videos load faster, it can also supports faster streaming of videos in other sites such as Metacafe, and more.

2. Stop button on YouTube player

Now consider this situation: there are 2 or more YouTube video pages open on your browser. You hit the Pause button on one of those videos, thinking that it’ll slow down the video loading time in the other.

But guess what? The Pause button is not so helpful on YouTube. The 1st YouTube video is still buffered, even after you’ve hit the Pause button.

So the alternate solution is to get the functionality of a stop button so as to prevent caching of videos. You can add a stop button to the YouTube Video player by using a work around. Install Greasemonkey, and then install this script. Here’s a live example of the Stop button appearing in the YouTube page near the video title:

3. Fast Forward Videos

If you didn’t know, YouTube has recently added a fast forward mode to their video player. Just click on any place in the slider in the bottom, and the video starts playing from there. You just need not wait for the entire part of the video before this point to load. Time, and bandwidth saved.

Hope these tips helped you. Any more tools/tips you can share with us?

Speedbit Video Accelerator is pretty unreliable; so I wouldn't even suggest it as a tip.
some of its shifty files caused me countless BSODs. After removing it they stopped.
