Speed up YouTube for Firefox on Old Computers

Posted on

Some old computers may not play 1080p videos smoothly, especially at 2x speed. In that case, you can switch off webm support, make YouTube provide Firefox with AVC videos instead of VP9 ones.

Just input about:config on the address bar. Enter, and change the value of media.webm.enabled to false. Refresh YouTube. Done.
