Slow youtube under Ultra mode


Recommended Posts

SO, I've mentioned this in one of the posts, but posting this as a separate thread now. With a video. For some reason if I use Ultra mode videos on Youtube use more time to start-up. While it's super-quick in retro-mode. Check the video I attached.

Same in portable version.

Also, just noticed, that sometimes videos embedded on other sites load fast, but when opened in Youtube - slow. So this seems to be youtube's site specific

Same here. I think it's almost certainly to do with AdHunter. For me at least, it runs in Flash with Ultra, and HTML5 in Retro. If you turn off AH they both start instantly (although with ads). AH just might work better with HTML5. When the adblock extension that was announced finally happens things might change.

Until then the other option and probably the best one, is to use the Youtube Centre extension. I'm not one for adding plenty of extensions to the browser, but this is by far one of the best, adding lots of options, removes ads perfectly and is also constantly being updated.
