Finally, Youtube Adds “Stop Download” Button to Stop Buffering Videos

March 29, 2010

The Only Problem Which I Always experienced with Youtube videos was to wait till the Video buffers completely until i watch the Second One (when two Videos are embedded in Same Page).

Let Me Explain You in Better Way, Suppose You have Two or More Videos Embedded in same Page and You have Started Watching The Video 1 which has a length of 5 minutes …

In Old Scenario:

At some Point of Time you get bored watching that Video 1 and need to Watch the Other. Obviously you gonna pause the Video1 and look at the Play button of Video 2.

You Click on The Play button of Video 2 and you Notice Even the Video 1 is Buffering(as it is only Paused)! which you never wanted that to happen as Video 1 is grabbing all your Download speed.. and the download speed is shared between these two Videos. It Means You need to wait till Video 1 buffers completely to watch the Video 2 in a defined way!

New Scenario:
The Solution-
Youtube added “Stop download” button when you right click on the embedded video. Now you could not only pause the videos but also stop videos from downloading(buffering). So The problem which we faced in Old Scenario can be easily tackled with this New option of “Stop download” and Now you could see any number of videos embedded in same page without the worry of unnecessary buffering of Other Videos.

Here is the Screenshot which shows up the Much Needed New “Stop Download” button while watching Two or More Videos in same Page.

Try it Yourself
Experience the effect of “Stop Download” while watching these two Videos.

Hope You Enjoyed watching the Video as well as Trying The New “Stop Download” option by youtube.
