Youtube videos load slow any fix?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
For some reason youtube will only use a max of 10% of my internet connection. Everything else i use is fine, quick downloads no lag in games. Is there anyway to speed up the video loading?

Or any reason it would be loading so slow? Im running the latest version of Firefox with all updated drivers.

Appreciate the help!

Subbed to this. I would like to hear some answers I possibly haven't tried. I know how fast the video loads depends on the resolution (in that sometimes higher resolution is faster because they allow more bandwidth for it) but that can't be the only way to change it.

Yeah its got to be something, it seems like it will be fast for a few months then slow for a few months. Even 1080p videos on other sites load extremely quick, so its only youtube i have a problem with.

With my internet it's really dumb because I could watch a video in 1080p. Go to watch a stream or something and not even have it be steady on 360p when everyone else in stream has it running fine. Then I go back to Youtube frustrated and it has issues loading 480p madsmiley.png

I just started noticing this this week. My videos at 480p even are slow. Everything else is fine.

You could try the html5 player and see if it makes any difference smile.gif

In the bottom of the pages there's a field called "try something new" or something like that, you should find it there

IMO they're just heavy loaded at times.. I havenoticed that if I refresh the page the video loads much faster, it might be because they use several servers so a refresh just routes me to a diffirent (lower loaded) server.
