Tip

Youtube Trick I


You may notice just under the lower right coner of the video window, some videos have an option to “Watch In High Quality”. By default, these videos will play as a 320×240 FLV file
at 320Kb/s. Check out this sample:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyyjgYcS8Fs

The user could click on this link to “Watch in High Quality” which will reload the video and play the MP4 version , which is 480×360 at 512Kb/s. By adding &fmt=18 to the end of the URL, you’ll make the URL you share with others bring them right to the high quality version. Here’s the same video in the High Quality view:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyyjgYcS8Fs&fmt=18

What else are you gaining besides increased video resolution? The video is compressed with H.264 compression, so you get better video even at the same data rate. You also go from a low fidelity mono audio feed to stereo @ 44.1Khz sample rate.



&fmt=6 increases the resolution from 320×240 to 448×336, Flash 7 video @ 900Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 96Kbps Mono CBR.

&fmt=18 increases the resolution to 480×360, H.264 video @ 512Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 128Kbps Stereo. Note, the bandwidth may be lower, but it’s utilizing a more efficient compression codec .

&fmt=22 increaes the resolution to 720p HD video if the source was uploaded at a high enough resolution.

Choppy Video? What do you mean choppy video? Is the video starting and stopping rather than playing continuous? If so, either you need more memory or the site you are watching the video from is slow. Also sometimes you line speed on the computer might be slow if you are watching the video online.

How does the video play if you played a DvD in your computer? If it plays the DvD without stalling, then your problem is more than like the site you are watching or the line speed as you stream the video.

My compaq presario 5000 when i go on to the internet to sites like hulu crackle and youtube and try to watch a video it plays but is slow and skipping/freezing but the audio plays fine what wrong


It sounds like you are having a video card issue. Either that or the computer is running too many programs at once and causing it to run out of ram.

Can anyone tell me why the videos i watch on youtube keep stopping and going and how i can fix that ?


Usually it's due to internet traffic and download speeds of your connection. Pause the video and let the entire video download before watching.

I just upgraded my PC 300PL IBM computer's RAM from 128 MB, to 256 MB on each slot (3 slotes), When i watch videos from my pc, or videos from online sites, The playback is slow and choppy. I was wondering...


The problem is that the video-player on your computer is "starving" for audio/video, because your download-speed is not fast-enough to "feed" the stream.

So, when a video starts to play, click PAUSE, and wait for the download to proceed for a while; then, click PLAY, to view the already-downloaded stream.

When this happen it is often a problem with the compression codes used by youtube streaming. Often they are not being managed if the browser is not up to date.

Check that the video card is installed properly and can play movies, for example test a DVD.

Try updating Internet Explorer: Internet Explorer: Get It Now

Check also this info from Youtube.
