With this trick you can increase youtube,metacafe and other website's video buffering speed.
I think the speed up is preety much noticable.
Here's the trick
Start -> Run -> system.ini -> Hit enter
A notepad will open like this-
for 16-bit app support
Copy the below text and paste it there;
After pasting the codes, the ini file will look something like this
............and still no explanation of what your system.ini edits actually do.
Just that "it's all over the internet". Be sure to google XP Myths before you answer, be sure to look up how Win7 addresses system.ini as well.
Or are you in the habit of blindly copying obsolete/non-existent ini file edits, applying them to your own system, and recommending the same to others without any understanding of the source and effect of those edits?

You edit the buffering size rather the default size and set it to 1000000Tbps(technically impossible).
Its just the maximal flow idea.
It does no harm and surely increases the buffering speed.
You can surely revert the ini file if you don't like it.
I recommended after seeing its effect and rather than me explaining here, I said you can find more clear explanation in google.
Hope you are clear and if you still don't understand then simply ignore this thread.
On anything newer than XP, system.ini is supported ONLY for 'legacy 16 bit programs that specifically look for it. system.ini certainly does NOTHING for the OS on newer systems. All system.ini does it to pass certain info to the (depreciated) 16 bit wow subsystem when called.
Note that in the current version of msconfig, the old XP-specific tabs that let you easily edit win.ini and system.ini aren't there any more. Nor are the files unless a USER deliberately creates them. On Vista/Win7 machines, these files are sometimes left behind from an in-place upgrade from XP (to Vista). Still worthless because the OS no longer references them. At all.
Very widespread, but still a myth. Less than legacy/useless knowledge. The hack in question had no effect 10 years ago regardless of how high it pops up on google searches.
Repeating it here isn't doing anyone any favors.
