This post will be giving you some tips on making sure your online videos play clearly with less buffering.
Upgrade Your Internet Connection
It doesn’t matter how solid your computer is, how latest your browser is and how fast the website you’re trying to watch a video on is it you can’t watch a video online with a dial-up internet. The first step to take when trying to watch videos online is to make sure you’re using a solid broadband internet. If you’re still using a dial-up internet or an old technology internet you might want to upgrade to a faster, effective and robust internet connection because that’s the only way to watch videos online clearly without problems.
Clear Your Private Data and Restart Your Computer
If you’re sure you have a fast and effective broadband internet there is every probability the problem is with your computer or web browser. We access a lot of websites everyday and these websites store a lot of data on our computers in the form of cookies and cache. There is a limit to the amount of these data our computer can accommodate so if your computer has exceeded its allocation you will find it difficult watching videos online. In cases like this the best thing to do is to clear your private data because this will remove everything your browser has stored on your computer. Once you’ve cleared your private data you should restart your system and then try to watch the video you want to watch again. You can clear your private data by clicking Ctrl>>Shift>>Delete (if you use Windows and Firefox — if otherwise you might want to research how to do this online).
Disable Applications Using Your Internet Connection
Another thing to do to get the best from watching videos on the internet is to disable applications using your internet connection. Some applications like download accelerators, torrent downloader, forex traders and your antivirus keep on using your internet connection to download or update files; in cases like this the best thing to do is to disable them. Disabling your antivirus can be very risky so you might want to see if it has settings that allow it to be used without trying to update itself automatically.
