Questions and Answers
Are there any other sites like YouTube that do not have buffering?
There are, unfortunately, no websites like YouTube that do not have buffering. Buffering happens when YouTube (or any other video content website) loads a certain chunk of time (usually 10 seconds) to make sure that, in the event of a drop in your internet speed, your video will continue playing while your internet returns to normal and loads the rest of the video. If you frequently encounter buffering on your YouTube videos, your internet connection may be slow, or your computer may be doing too many things at once and has to stop processing the video to complete its other tasks. Follow these steps to try to make your YouTube buffering shorter:
- 2Restart your browser.
- 3Close all other applications.
- 4Open your browser.
- 5Go to YouTube.
- 6Play a video.
This should solve your buffering issues. If not, you can follow the instructions in the great VisiHow article below to use YouTube's mobile player, which is designed to play videos on phones that have a slow internet connection. If you are still having issues with buffering, your internet connection is likely very slow. You can click the gear in the lower right-hand corner of the video player to change your video quality which may help, though the video will be blurry when you try to watch it. If you're still having issues with buffering, you will need to call your ISP. It sounds like there is a problem with your internet connection that is preventing you from watching any quality of YouTube video, so you will need to get your ISP to send out a technician to fix your problem.
