Tips To Fix YouTube® Issues in Windows® 7
What are the different reasons due to which YouTube freezes?
YouTube is one of the most established websites in the world. Millions of users access this site daily to watch interesting videos. It supports video streaming and sharing sites with more than 20 million active users. This implies that most of the users all over the world use this site for viewing movies and videos. Problems might occur while watching YouTube videos and the problem is that YouTube freezes very frequently. At times, it freezes for few seconds and sometimes it could hang for long intervals. This problem occurs in almost all browsers like IE, Firefox, and Google Chrome. It happens due to many reasons. Some of the major reasons are overload on website, concurrent running of many programs in your computer, low RAM, slow Internet connection, or corrupted Windows Registry. If there are heavy programs running on YouTube, they slow down the speed of the computer and interfere with the uploading and watching of videos. Audio and video clips require much more memory than ordinary files. This is the reason why Internet connection is required for using YouTube more quickly. When it is used at rare times and the loading time prolongs, it means that the issue is with the traffic of YouTube.
Following are different tips to resolve issues with YouTube in Windows 7:
- Registry cleaner
- Close running programs
- Low speed Internet connection
It is always better to clean the Windows registry of your PC. Windows registry is an important place which stores information for important computing functions. A corrupted Windows registry makes the computer slow which causes the YouTube to freeze. Therefore use the best registry cleaner and optimizer to prevent YouTube from freezing and the system from slowing down.
Close running programs
If you are running other programs at the same time while using YouTube, then YouTube would most probably freeze. This is because the running programs make use of memory and thus slow down the computer. Also close the browsers and tabs that are no longer needed. The user may open fresh tabs instead of restoring opened tabs. Insufficient RAM also causes YouTube to freeze. So, adding RAM in your PC would also help to resolve the issue. Additional RAM would help in easy execution of heavy programs in your system.
Another reason for the freezing of YouTube is low speed Internet connection. The videos and movies take much time to download if you have a low speed Internet connection. So, if possible, watch videos during off peak hours. Otherwise, manage to get better and speedy Internet connection by talking to your ISP.
