YouTube Tricks You Probably Didn’t Know

It feels bad when you start a video in youtube suddenly a clickable box that overlays on top of YouTube video which you need to close every time.Today im gonna tell you how to avoid this clickable boxes, how to buffer fast the video and avoid auto play once you open the video.

1. Disabling Video Annotation (clickable box)

Annotation is a clickable box that overlays on top of YouTube videos. It aims to improve user engagement by displaying extra information or links related to the videos. It is useful for the video uploader, but can also be quite annoying for the users.

You can disable annotations to all YouTube videos via the YouTube settings. Click your profile picture then click the gear icon (YouTube Setting).

On the left sidebar, select Playback and uncheck the Annotations and Interactivity option. Easy as that.

  

2. Force Buffering Of The Entire Video

YouTube actually buffers only 30 seconds of the total video length when the video is paused. When your Internet connection isn’t quite fast enough to load the video this causes a lag. To avoid this, you can force YouTube to buffer the entire video before you can play it through,
SmartVideo for YouTube is a tool that can help with this and is available as a Firefox Add-on and Chrome Extension. After you’ve installed it and opened a YouTube video, you will see an additional option at the bottom of the video, click Global Preferences, and tick the box for Smart Buffer, as shown in the image below.

3. Disable Autoplay

YouTube will immediately start playing a video you’ve just opened which can sometimes be annoying. To disable autoplay video on YouTube, you can use the YouTube Control Center Add-on in Firefox or Stop Autoplay extension for Chrome.
It has a handful of options to control a YouTube video. Install this Add-on, and find Autoplays video when the player loads. Keep this option unchecked to disable Autoplay. Another option is the Stop Autoplay extension which does the same thing. You need to install it on Chrome, then activate it via the chrome://extensions/ page.
Hope now you can enjoy the youtube videos at its best..
