Buffer full video or make buffer bigger

Tarih

Hi all, so since a few versions I have noticed a difference in video buffering. Firefox now buffers a very small amount of a video, like it does when mediasource extensions are turned on. I did turn them off however so videos were usually downloaded automatically all the way, which was very convenient for me, instead of just when you play the video the next few seconds. This doesn't work anymore as if I enabled mediasource extensions and every video used it.

Is there some way to revert that behaviour? I guess it was done out of performance reasons. How can I change it back, e.g. make the video buffer bigger?

Thanks a lot

There is an easy fix for it just increase media.cache_readhead_limit to 9999 and media.cache_resume_treshold also to 9999. This was also puzzling me since firefox 54 would buffer till the end of the video but firefox 55 wouldn't, so I went trough the about:config and found those two lines once I chagned their values from (60, 30) to those above every single video I opened in firefox so far buffered till the end, you don't even need to restart the firefox just refresh the page for changes to take the effect. Hope this helped.

Hello Pkshadow, thanks for your reply! I'm on GNU+Linux Firefox 55 beta 11, but the problem has been there since a few versions already.

The articles you provided help with general issues if it doesn't work for example, but it works for me. I just want to make the buffer bigger. Deleting the cache didn't help either. I'm trying to find a general solution, so not just youtube and without an addon would be nice. It did work previously, so it should be possible to make it work again.

Ok, \Little confused. Do you want to make the buffer bigger or. You have a confusing statement in your question. Could you please clarify it.

Sure, what statement do you find confusing?

I want to make the video buffer bigger. So right now, every video gets buffered automatically like 2 minutes. Firefox version 40 (or something) actually buffered the whole video. This was convenient for me and I want that behaviour back, so always buffer the whole video or at least 30 minutes. I'm guessing there is a restriction setting for that somewhere, but I can't find it.

Could you check this URL out please, about 1/2 way down the page for Firefox. https://beebom.com/how-force-youtube-fully-buffer-video-chrome-firefox/

I do not know what video card your using but can you make sure the drivers are update and if are can you uninstall and reinstall them please in-case anything is corrupted. Also please check your video card documentation regarding this issue along with the cards forums. Thanks.

Thanks, I also found this site, but it only suggests what I already did: disabling mediasource extensions. I found no other useful websites through my search, so I hoped to find experts here.

It worked with the same video card and driver before, so I don't think this is the problem.

However you gave me the idea to try it on another device and it did work there. I just found out that it also works correctly on my device when I use version 54 stable instead of 55 beta. So I think I found a bug or a change that I don't want to happen. I think I'll report it on Bugzilla. Thanks for your help.

Thanks so much Oloferno :-) I also thought there was a setting for this in about:config but I didn't think it'd be easy to find. Smart!

You are missing an a in media.cache_readahead_limit btw. Also it's enough to make this one bigger. Don't know what media.cache_resume_threshold does. Everything's as it was before, nice!
