You can download the content on your PC and run it from over there. This will definitely be more responsive than streaming it online.


You can use the following tool for doing that.

http://www.videodownloadx.com/

This will not only help you download the video but also convert it to another format for example MPG so that you can play it with Windows Media Player or other software.

Good Luck!

I would suggest disabling hardware acceleration. It sounds like it is needed and really helps to make things faster, but that is incorrect. It can actually cause slow streaming and choppy video playback. Disable it by doing the following:

1.Click on Start
2.Click Control Panel and Click Display
3.Select the Settings tab and click on the Advanced.
4.Click on the Troubleshoot tab.
5.Disable the hardware acceleration completely by dragging the slider to the extreme left.

It is a holdover from when pc's were much slower. With faster processors, faster video, and larger caches, it is really no longer needed.

Reboot after changing the setting to make sure it becomes active.

That'll work. There are quite a few "downloaders", some as a website service (as above) or many as software http://download.cnet.com/windows/download-managers/?tag=nav  CAUTION many install "foistware" additional c%^& or hijack your search etc.  I did not like Orbit for doing that.

I like http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/ best.  Simply uncheck whatever add-ins/toolbars you do not want to add while installing, to avoid all he "foistware"  There's the entire suite, or just go for the one tool you need http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-YouTube-Download.htm
