How To Increase Speed Of Streaming Videos in Browser

Most of the videos streaming is possible in internet all because of Adobe Flash Player. The player loads the video or any media through buffering, the process by which the media is temporarily downloaded onto your computer before playback.

And when your playback stops due to “buffering” this indicates that the download and storage speed is slower than the playback speed.

To prevent this one thing is you increase your internet speed and other option is as follows:

1. Select the media you wish to play in your web browser.

2. Right click on the player and click on the settings of the flash player.
