Loading YouTube videos should be a very quick and easy process which even the slowest of computers should be able to deal with. Unfortunately, this is hardly ever the case and many people report seeing YouTube videos taking a long time to load, and are constantly having to “buffer” your videos as well. In order to fix this problem, you need to be able to fix the various problems that cause this issue.
Step 1 – Fix Flash Player – One of the biggest reasons why Windows takes a long time to load YouTube videos is because the program that plays the videos (“Flash Player”) is either damaged, corrupt or running slowly. Flash Player is freely available from the developers’ website (Adobe) and you should look to uninstall this tool from your PC, download a new copy from the Internet and then reinstall a fresh copy.
Step 2 – Close Other Programs – You also need to make sure that your computer is only focusing on one program (your web browser) to make your videos load up. Many people try and use a variety of programs on their computer at once… but this not only makes your PC run slower but also makes YouTube videos take longer to load up as well. To fix this problem, you should simply close down all the other programs on your PC and make sure that you only have one open.
Step 3 – Fix The ‘Registry’ – The registry is the most likely cause of youtube to mp3 videos taking a long time to load – it’s basically a central database of settings and files for your PC. The registry keeps a large number of settings for your PC, allowing your computer to recall a large number of details that it can then use to help it run as smoothly as possible. Unfortunately, many of the settings and files that are kept inside the registry end up becoming damaged, which leads Windows to take longer to read them. This makes YouTube videos load a lot slower as it means that your computer will be unable to read the files it needs to run the videos. To fix this, you should look to use a “registry cleaner” to scan through the registry database and fix any of the damaged files or settings that are inside it. These are widely available online and are very simple to use – you basically need to let the registry cleaner scan your PC and it will fix all the damaged settings on your computer, allowing YouTube to load videos much faster.
