Why Does YouTube Take So Long To Load?

One thing that is not probably on Youtube might be the invisible. Even though that is highly suspect as Youtube flourishes with factual and imagined videos. Youtube is the most popular and famous leading video sharing site of the world. It was founded in 2005 by three friends named Jawed Karim, Char Hurley and Steve Chen. Shortly, a year later Youtube was bought by Google for $1.65 billion.

The most popular Youtube video till this time is Judson Lapply’s “Evolution of Dance” which received a high 41 million hits. Youtube allows the user to upload a video if it does not show graphic material, sex and explicitly promote moral and religious intolerance. This is again a subject of hot debate. The user can upload a private video that can be only shared with friends one can only imagine what else can be there.  Youtube has since then launched careers of unknown entities in our planet’s scheme of things.

Common reasons why Youtube freezes

As Youtube is a video sharing website that contains millions of video files, it could possibly slow down because of the following reasons.

1. Inadequate Internet bandwidth and VRAM:

The VRAM of the PC and the Internet bandwidth can be falling short.  Every time when the Youtube website loads videos into the PC’s VRAM, the user may be able to see it on the screen that is why it is inadequate because the format may look different.  If this happens then the PC’s VRAM need upgrading.

2. Slow buffering:

One reason is the buffering time of the computer. In fact it greatly depends on the duration of the video and the speed of the Internet connection.  A faster connection and a shorter video will load the VRAM equally faster. The longer the video will take slower for the video to load. If the user is in a rush to watch the video then the video even while loading, then it will take even slower.  The user might keep on clicking until it freezes.

3. Full cache:

One more possible reason is that the system’s cache memory might be full.

Avoiding Youtube freeze:

The user can do these while waiting for the VRAM upgrades

•           Exit Youtube leaving the browser running.

•           The disk should be checked by de-fragmenting it.

•           All the updates that are needed can be downloaded from Windows update

•           The PC should be switched again to see if Youtube still freezes. If it still freezes then a free registry can be downloaded.

All videos on Youtube cannot be seen by all users. The user can actually choose to make the video private. It can be done by “Edit Video Info” and then selecting “Private” under the option of “Broadcast.”

Youtube has been continuously battling with copyrights claims since its earliest days because of the videos made by those whose videos are uploaded without their permission. Basically, they are singers and record producers. This is the reason why that Youtube announced in 2007 that it had installed a software that had the ability to automatically detect whether the uploaded videos are original or copied.
