But there are certain ways through which you can really improve the buffering speed of YouTube videos so that you can enjoy watching videos on slow connections too. Infect by doing these windows tricks i was able to improve my videos buffering speed up-to 3 times faster.
Tips to Speed up YouTube Buffering.
1. Speed up your Internet connection.
Not many people know that they increase the internet connection speed up-to 20% which will definitely increase the loading of YouTube videos. You may be wondering how this is possible. The answer is very simple, Microsoft windows kept or steals 20% bandwidth of your internet connection to there activities like Update, Sending error reports etc. So if we change some registry values in our windows than we can bring back this speed so that we enjoy 100% of our internet speed.
Click on start button ans than select RUN. Type “gpedit.msc” in Run box.
Select Local Computer Policy >> Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Network >> Qos Packet Scheduler >> Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
Double click on limit Reservable Bandwidth and then select enable and edit the bandwidth to Zero.
You will not find “gpedit.msc” in Windows 7 Starter and Basic by default so you have to first download the installer from here. Install it and now you will be able to find this in windows.
2. Enable YouTube Feather.
Some time ago YouTube launched YouTube Feather beta for its users with low internet bandwidth so that they can enjoy faster page loading speeds. For this to activate you have to first login into your YouTube account and than visit YouTube Feather Beta page. Click on Join the Feather beta link at the bottom of the page and start searching videos. You will see a clear difference in page loading.
But Feather Beta has also some limitations like you cannot see or post comments. You cannot like or Dislike the video which means that you can only watch the video. Also YouTube will only suggest you 5 videos related to the one you are watching.
3. Use YouTube DNS.
By default our computer’s network card settings are set to Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically which in many cases is good but when it comes to YouTube buffering its better to use YouTube DNS in order to speed up your buffering. Open your Network card DNS settings page via Networking menu in Control Panel and set these values.
4. Install SpeedBit Video Accelerator.

Install it and after that it will automatically do its magic and you can enjoy watching HD videos with out any delays.
