There are only 3 spots left. See the "Lost Temple" announcement on the homepage for more. Speaking of contests, don't forget to participate in our other contest to put a funny, original caption on an image. The winner will receive 1000 doubloons. In the future... SBC will be moving to vBulletin on August 26th, 2011. This will also be the launch of v7. We had a good time on forumotion, but it is time for us to move. Stay tuned for more!

Youtube buffering-FIXED!!!

Post by Guest on 6/13/2011, 2:24 pm

I've seen a vid about how to fix this. Most cases of this is caused because Youtube videos throttle your bandwidth, which cuts off your streaming speed & causes the vid to load slower. Youtube throttles the vids with an encoding inside a hidden Windows file which can only be found by typing in the directory in Windows Explorer. You can find this file at the following directories:

Windows XP directory: C:\Documents And Settings\(username)\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

The throttling algorithm (algorithm=throttle-factor&) is located in the file index.dat, which you can find by opening it in Notepad. Download Pocket KillBox to delete the index.dat file & get rid of the throttling algorithm.

You're welcome Google/Youtube, I probably just saved you from getting your ass sued off

PS: This is only for Windows XP or higher. Sorry Mac & Linux guys

......or you could just pause and be patient and allow the YouTube video to buffer

Welcome to the Internet. Unless you have super duper high speed connection, you have to show patience and allow sites to load at a slower pace and videos to buffer at a slower pace depending on video quality.

It's not the connection. I have DSL and my uncle has ATCV highspeed. Both have the same problem. And it's not any different. 2 years ago I could watch something 10m long in 1080p with absolutely no buffering on the same connection I have today. Now I'm forced to wait every second for it to buffer on 240p vids! Also, on his connection, I could download a 620MB file in 3 hours, on the other hand, Youtube remains slow as fuck.

It takes literally one second for videos to really buffer for me. Sometimes I don't have to wait at all.

Patience.




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?

Doesn't buffering happen regardless of the power of your computer? Seriously ACSBehemothHellcat, being patient takes less time and hard work then going through that entire process you listed above.

When my computer was slow, I'd just wait, wait, and close the window, until my connection was more improving. But now my Youtube is fine, and I don't do that anymore.
