Google Adds Stop Download Feature to Youtube, Helps Us Waste Time More Efficiently

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 22, 2010

Last week, Google added a “Stop download” option to YouTube’s video player, giving us a more convenient way of choosing which videos waste our time and bandwidth. If you want your browser to stop buffering a YouTube vid, just right-click on the video and choose “Stop download”. Why don’t you go try it out?

Yo Ush! People are hatin’ on me Ush. Ush Ush Ush. But seriously it would be nice if there was an option to do the opposite and resume downloading the video. As it’s really not too different from closing the window or tab where the video is loading.
