Here is the simple hack which will make you to stream youtube videos faster than the erstwhile to load a video in youtube.

Disclaimer: Follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be held responsible if running this command has any negative consequences.

The hack involves running a one-line command in Command Prompt.

To launch Command Prompt click the Windows button, type ‘cmd’, right-click Command Prompt’s icon and click  ’Run as administrator’. Make sure to click on ‘Yes’ on the User Account Control (UAC) window if it pops up.

Now copy the following command exactly as it appears:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="YouTubePerformanceHack" dir=in action=block remoteip=, enable=yes

Right-click anywhere in the Command Prompt window and click ‘Paste’. (CTRL+C and CTRL+V do not work in Command Prompt.)

Press Enter to execute the command. If everything goes well, you should get an ‘Ok.’ response, as shown below.

Now, go ahead and load a YouTube video in your browser. You should see significantly improved buffering performance. you will be able to stream videos in 480p resolution without any lagging after implementing this hack.

By running this command forces YouTube’s servers to push the video to you directly instead of the cached version, bypassing your ISP’s throttling.

Since this command blocks a massive range of IP addresses belonging to Google and XO’s content delivery network, it may cause issues with connecting to some random website in the future that uses these IP addresses. With that in mind, you can easily remove Ribar’s hack by running the following command in command prompt again:

netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name="YouTubePerformanceHack"

Press Enter to execute the command. If everything goes well, you should get an `Deleted 1 rule(s).’ ‘Ok.’ response, as shown below.

Plow ahead and try it out on your Own. Don’t forget to comment us back about the hack.
