Youtube: Speed up buffering
 
This really needs expert advice. I've tried various browsers and I've noticed difference in buffering times in Youtube. Yes, this difference is small but has anybody got working hacks in speeding up Youtube buffering times? :rolleyes:

With respect to softwares providing assistance for the same I've read about SpeedBit Video Accelerator(free) and BiWifi Video Streaming Downloader. But am not sure how much buffering times would be minimized. Has anybody used the software?

Also the most popular post circulating around the net would be http://breaker.forumotion.net/t460-h...uffering-speed (This is just one of the many of the same posts around the net). As far as I can see, they are altering the buffer size, load speeds to infinity(Tbps range) . I havn't had any difference in speeds though I tried the same, but logically it should have some effect in improving the buffering time. Confused :confused:

Am open to any ideas or working solutions and valuable advices :)

This is a script for Opera/Firefox. Eliminates buffering and set HD by default when available. Not sure about "buffer acelerators"

I've found that youtube videos seem to buffer into VLC player faster than the browser.

i've started using https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...etter-youtube/ lately and it seems to work. I put it on the youtube theater in options

been watching the free youtube movies lately so this helps make the service better... not that i don't support ads, but they should put them at the start of the movie or something and not little popups http://www.youtube.com/movies?fl=f&pt=fm

edit: I know this just uses greasemonkey scripts but I don't like greasemonkey for whatever reason, just personal preference I suppose.
