Youtube Videos

Youtube is a wonderful source of information on just about any topic in the universe you could desire. For example, see this article on solar cells:

The problem is the huge number of ads that can render a video unusable.

If you are using Firefox, the best ad blocker I have found is Adblock Plus. It is faster and uses less memory than other versions. It kills all ads except the ones that are part of the video. I just skip over them.

You can download Adblock Plus at

The next problem is the muffled sound in Youtube videos. Frequencies above

500Hz need to be boosted by about 12 dB for a clear and natural sound. An excellent product is Audio Equalizer at

Neither of these add-ons seem to be othered by which version of Firefox you are using. I am using FF 52.0.2 and both work fine.

All you need to do is get "ClipGrab" and when you see a video you like, grab it and watch it 100% uninterrupted.

I DL music videos on YT instead of finding an MP3 somewhere.

It is MP3 quality or better.

ClipGrab is your friend.

Sounds like you need new speakers. There is a wide variation in the quality of what can be found on the Internet. You Tube or otherwise. Software fixes to audio quality issues are usually worthless.

** It is ALSO a virtually limitless source of mis-information and FAKE information.

Buyer beware.

** I don't get any, other than ones spoken by the presenter.
** Absolutely !!

Most spoken word vids are terribly muffled. I have to use full bass cut and half treble boost on my 1970s Kenwood amp to get clear sound. The speakers are good quality, mini two-ways made by NHT.

OTOH music vids, live or recorded material, mostly sound fine.

  • Where? The link is only for UNSPECIFIED version of Firefox and the screens do NOT mention Adblock.
