How to Get Youku to Load Faster

By Clayton Kim

Like Youtube and UStream, Youku is an online site where users can stream and upload videos. Like most streaming websites, buffering is a constant problem. After you find your favorite video to watch, it takes minutes if not hours to load. In order to get Youku to load faster, you need to clear your cache. Your cache stores temporary files and is actually made to speed up the browsing process. After a while, it collects so much information that it actually slows down your computer.
