Another way of speeding up the buffering of Youtube is by Routing Through a Different DNS like OpenDNS or Google Public DNS. Details of this phenomena would require a lengthy explanation but in short you can count this option to speed up buffering of videos. Google guarantees that by using their Public DNS service can actually help you enhance your Internet browsing speed by optimizing the traffic routes between you and your destination servers. But they have provided with the following caution:

"Note, however, that because nameservers geolocate according to the resolver’s IP address rather than the user’s, Google Public DNS has the same limitations as other open DNS services: that is, the server to which a user is referred might be farther away than one to which a local DNS provider would have referred. This could cause a slower browsing experience for certain sites."

Problems with DSL connections and other internet providers are inevitable. You will keep facing problems ranging from download speed to local server connection errors quite frequently. So try the tricks out as they might contribute in a better streaming experience.
