Don’t you hate it when you try to watch a YouTube clip and it keeps stopping during playback? What it’s doing there is buffering more video data to play on your computer. Yes, even when streaming the video, the video data gets downloaded onto your computer and this process is referred to as buffering.
Although the promise of streaming video on the Internet has significantly improved, it is still accompanied by a measure of frustration: the frames do not always flow as they should. This is true especially for people with slower internet connection.
Not anymore! Speedbit, an Israeli company, famous for their flagship product – DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) has a simple solution for your video streaming woes. SpeedBit Video Accelerator accelerates videos from YouTube and over 150 sites: Dailymotion, Metacafe, Facebook, MySpace, Vimeo and others with ease. It makes videos stream faster & play smoother, by reducing buffering problems.
SpeedBit Video Accelerator works automatically with your web browser to let you watch web videos smoothly without frustrating pauses and interruptions. SpeedBit Video Accelerator’s advanced technology uses multiple-simultaneous download sources ensuring that streaming videos play without freezing, HD videos stream significantly faster, and iTunes content downloads extremely fast.
WebVideoUniversity has this nice review of Speedbit Video Accelarator which I found worthy to be included here.
The version we tested was v188.8.131.52 and the size of the installable was 4.4 MB. Speedbit Video accelerator works with IE 6/7/8, Firefox 2/3, Safari, Opera, Netscape, Flock. Somehow I don’t find any information on the website if it is supported on Google Chrome or not. It works on all OS versions of Windows, including Windows 7 and it has a Mac version as well.
The basic version of Speedbit Video Accelerator is Free to download, while the Premium version costs $40 a year ($20 this holiday season). The premium version supports HD Video acceleration and also iTunes acceleration.
