How it Works

Do you always watch HQ streaming video on Youtube?
On Youtube and other sites, do you always watch the highest quality streaming video possible? I have found that it lags my browser so I put at the lowest quality setting.

Not always, but I still use it sometimes.

I play at whatever the default is because I mostly just use YT to listen to music anyway, so I don't care about the video quality.

My computer doesn't handle HD videos well at all, as it's choppy and it takes FOREVER!!! So I use the lower quality setting. I can't see an immediate difference in the variations anyways

Any Youtube video is laggy on my computer. So I rarely watch Youtube anymore. Sometimes, a video will load, but it's usually at the lower graphics quality setting.

Also, streaming HD videos might cause you to be charged with overages by your internet company. Many companies only allow you so much bandwidth before levying a fine for the overage. Just run the video at the lowest setting you can.

If I could do this every time I would, but my internet connection is not the best. Sometimes when I really want to watch certain video on HD I have to load it for a while first before I start to watch it, otherwise it's not possible to just to play the video without loading it first. It's annoying, but sometimes it is worth to take the time for this. If only my internet connection was decent enough... I can only wish for it.

Yes, I use this most of the time when watching Youtube videos since I can't really enjoy something that is blurry. Unless of course the internet connection is really bad that I can't watch unless I lower the quality of the video I'm watching. It tends to cause the video to not stream continuously or be a little laggy, but this doesn't happen too often for me.

I do sometimes, like it really depends on your internet and also watching it depends on the video quality it has to offer. HQ quality streaming are probably perfect on a movie, and also when I play music I usually just play it on a low quality for it to load faster.

I watch all format of ,I even enjoy HD videos more because of it brightness and clear view.I think that lagging should be your network.I noticed same in mind when my internet is slow or not connecting properly.Why I don't stream all the time is just because of my data limit cap.
