YouTube is slow.
Once I hit the ‘play’ button on a YouTube video, I typically have to wait a pretty long time for the video to load up and play smoothly.
Here’s a quick fix for this. Using the same simultaneous download principles which we’ve seen for other browser download accelerators, Speedbit Videoaccelerator speeds up YouTube so your online video experience is a much smoother one.
The free version not only handle’s YouTube but also caters for over 100 other sites.
They also offer a premium version which speeds up acceleration of iTunes downloads, but you can always use other free options for that feature.
Note: Speedbit claims that it is 100% spyware/adware free, but Videoaccelerator will install the Ask.com searchbar (which you can remove) as part of the install set. Not the best way to package software, but it still looks to be the fastest way to load up YouTube videos.
