"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, there's no browser option as such.  There is an alternative and I find it better than playing video through a browser, it's not as convenient.

Download a copy of ClipGrab.  This is a program that can download YouTube videos to files so that you can play them from your hard drive, hopefully without interruption.

4K video requires substantial bandwidth compared to other options such as HE or Full HD.

Netflix, for.example, recommend a a minimum of a 25 Mbps internet connection speed in order to wath 4K video.

While cable and fibre are now common for Internet provision, the actual speed you receive varies and may not be as much as the maximum the Telco states due to technical reasons but this depends on your provider and their implementation.

it also depends what else is being used on the same internet connection which would be shared.
