2-Minute Fix To Youtube Buffering Issue & Auto-Changing Resolution!

Ever faced your favourite YouTube video getting auto-changed to resolutions? How many times your experienced is ruined due to buffering no matter how fast broadband you have?

Well, most of us face this YouTube disaster on daily basis. Faster broadband users (above 1MBPS) will be forced to lower resolution, when the video begins, like 140P or 240P. We have to change it back to higher resolutions like 360P, 480P or 720P and then video stops and starts that annoying buffering again.

On the other hand, slower broadband users are most of the time waste their time in the buffering loop. After every 10 seconds a playback, YouTube starts buffering for next 5 seconds.

So how can quickly fix this issue in just 2-minutes?
