But if you are on a slow connection then it becomes very difficult for us to buffer videos continuously. And if you want to watch something really important then you will need high speed internet connection otherwise this can be really frustrating for you. But don’t worry I am having some tips and tricks using them you can buffer YouTube videos at slow internet connection also.
1. Use SpeedBit Video Accelerator :-

It’s third-party software to improve buffering speed of YouTube videos. All you have to do it is install Video Accelerator and boost your streaming speed up to a large extent.

3. By Blocking Some IPs :-

This is a trick by a guy named Mitch Ribar. This trick makes some changes in the windows firewall which blocks some IP addresses. I have seen many users taking benefit from this trick. It helped them a lot. The thinking behind it is that some ISPs try to throttle bandwidth from the server that catches videos which causes slow buffering of videos. The commands below blocks relevant IP addresses which forces streaming sites to deliver actual video.

  • Go to RUN (Window Key+ R) type cmd and press enter.
  • Copy the command below, Right Click in command prompt and paste there.


netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”FixBuffering” dir=in action=block remoteip=, enable=yes 

  • Now restart your system and access YouTube videos with increased buffer speed.
  • If you want to remove this command then just copy paste the following command in the Command Prompt and hit enter.


netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name=”FixBuffering”

4. Use YouTube Open DNS Server :-

You can also improve your streaming speed by hooking up to an Open DNS Server. Just follow the steps below.

  • Go To Control Panel.
  • Then go to your Network Connections Setting.
