Windows 7: What is the fastest browser for watching HD youtube?

12 Apr 2010   #11

Linux (Debian, Android)

If you are using the HTML5 youtube player: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. then Chrome is probably your best bet. Otherwise your experience will depend on the version of your Flash plugin and not your browser, however, I believe the ActiveX Flash plugin is more "optimized" than NPAPI Flash plugin.

The issue is at their end.

It does not affect all Videos only some and even non HQ/HD.

You can Google it and see the past month or so its gotten really bad.

I cannot load some of the non HQ ones at random times but load a 1080p one fine.

Ther is an App I see last week somewhere, it claims to sort this out and its free.
