YouTube, like many video services, uses buffering when watching videos. That is, while you are watching, the video is buffered forward for a few seconds. This allows you not to use the network and play the video without delay.

But with a very bad connection, you want to pause the video and wait for it to fully buffer, which YouTube does not want to do at all. But this problem can be solved with the YouTube Control Center extension, which is available for Google Chrome and Firefox.

To achieve this, run the video and go to the extension settings. You'll find some useful options here, but we're interested to Buffer video without starting it.

Refresh the tab and now the videos will be automatically buffered completely before playing.
