watching youtube videos and other videos from different platforms often buffer


Recommended Posts

title explains it all, so i uninstalled eset because i got tired of vids buffering but realized that i dont have any antivirus or security software besides windows defender (which isnt the best) but i really want an antivirus at the same time so is there any solution to fix the buffering

Please elaborate more on what the problem is and how to reproduce it. Does temporarily disabling protocol filtering in the advanced setup make a difference?

Basically only protocol filtering can affect downloads via http/https. Since disabling it didn't make any difference, does the issue go away after uninstalling ESET and returns after installing the latest version from scratch with default settings?

Does using a different browser make a difference?

no, the issue does not go away still in the opera gx browser (the main one im using). but  it seems to be working better in google chrome as of now (i only tried it for like 10 minutes)

You wrote that the issue persists after uninstalling ESET. If that's true, then ESET is not the culprit.

any solution or idea yet?

Do you use any kind of adblocker? or behind any NGFW firewall ?

Try one time to test without it , does it load instantly?

yes it does but the problem is if i have the video paused for a short time it doesnt play or buffers, also if i disable adblocker then the ads will return. another thing is after doing research, there are other people having similar issues: https://forum.eset.com/topic/3579-stuttering-in-streaming-videos/

I presume this is different issue? If removing eset doesn't fix the issue it can't be eset

You could try using the special manual uninstaller via the link bellow which needs done in safe mode to make sure all eset's traces are gone but if the issue still persists eset can't be the culprit
