YouTube Slow Loading problem? Recently I was having a YouTube slow loading problem at home every time I wanted to open up a YouTube movie. This never happened before and I knew my internet was fast enough to handle the connection. The YouTube screen went blank for a very long time as if the movie couldn’t be loaded at all. Sometimes I could then see/play the movie and sometimes the screen was just plain blank. This was not an ISP or speed problem at my end because I can open up other media files online just fine. I thought this was a problem on my video card driver or even on the internet connection I have to stream video files. Apparently, it wasn’t as I could open up sites relatively quick and even the download speed was good.
If you are experiencing this very same problem like I did, here is what you need to do to fix the YouTube slow loading problem. Or at least, what I did to solve mine (hopefully the same problem as yours).

If you still have a problem after updating these, the last resort should be to download and install CCleaner. After I did a sweep and clean of my system using CCleaner the YouTube loading problem went away! Videos can now be loaded and played correctly at the right speed. I’m a happy chappy!
