YouTube To Use Predictive Loading And Other New Methods To Reduce Lag
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
There’s nothing that annoys me more than getting lag on YouTube despite having a reasonably fast and reliable fibre optic connection. YouTube knows that lag is still a problem and according to Gizmodo it is working on a handful of new ways to try and remove lag for good.
The final method in YouTube’s armoury is pre-loading and it will load the first few seconds of each video in the related category or suggested videos that way if you decide you want to watch them then it will have already started the loading process. Of course all this requires that you have a decent internet connection and that data usage is not an issue, I am sure YouTube will make a lighter version of YouTube for Android and iOS.
