    Experimented with this and it works like a charm.
    1. Go to youtube.com.
    2. Click on any video
    3. Right click on the video and click on "settings"
    4. Click on the middle folder "local storage"
    5. Move slider all the way to Unlimited (Highest Settings) Then close
    6. Go to www.youtube.com/feather_beta
    7. Click Join Beta

    Happy New Year

    OP: This method will load the whole video at once, right? Wouldn't that bring traffic issues when you watch a 1080p video on youtube as it downloads it all?

    YES, easier to say than to do, especially when there is no fiber at your area :D and the best ISP provider that could provide you internet is the one that gives you only 1Mb Download and 256Kb Upload :D

    thanks OP, was just able to watch a 4k youtube video with no pausing to buffer (watched the same video before and it took about 20 minutes to fully buffer)

    It's not just about your connection. Even with a good connection sometimes YT won't load 360p videos or they lag a lot. Other times it will load an entire 1080p video very quickly (I did some trick forever ago to make it load the whole video).
