    Default Youtube Buffering Issue

    So I enjoy listening to symphonies on youtube (and since they got rid of the 10 minute limit on video sizes, I can enjoy full hours of lovely music at my finger tips).

    However I often have a shitty internet connection (which I can't help because the provider is shit ).

    My issue arises from said connection and the buffering issue that arises.

    I thought it would be possible to pause the video and say walk away do chores for an hour or so and come back to a fully buffered symphony.

    However I have thusly note that the buffering process actually stops a minute or 2 after I press pause. I originally thought that my internet had just clipped out. But it seems that, that's not the case and instead the video would resume buffering as soon as I started the video again.

    Is there a firefox or chrome add-on that fixes this? Or is it something with my settings?

    Plugins can't fix shitty internet, you might want to click the gear icon on videos and run at 240p or some shit.

    I noticed this too, it stops buffering after a little bit. I'm not sure how to fix it, but i'll look around to see if I can find anything to help.

    Edit: have you tried clearing youtubes cookies? Some say that helped them.

    I clear my cookies about once a month or so with CCleaner.

    What browsers have you tested it with? Otherwise I think it might be something stupid youtube added, and not a problem on your end.

    Tbh, I would think it would be easier to download it than to sit and let it buffer.

    I know for sure the issue happens in firefox.

    As for downloading, I might but then I'd have crap tons of audio files that I only want to listen to once in a while crowding out my disk space.

    Have you tested chrome or that other thing that Microsoft made in an attempt to allow web surfing?

    Yeah, it's happening to everybody. It's not a bug. YouTube just assumes everybody has internet fast enough to stream any video, and does this to save resources on their part.

    It's really stupid.
