Bonus: Use a VPN to Upload your video to YouTube

VPN can not only help you bypass restrictions in your region but also reduce video buffering and help you upload faster in speed.

Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) make a promise to users about their unlimited, high-speed internet services. While if you are an average user you will have a good internet speed. But if you’re a heavy streamer, you would be affected by bandwidth throttling.

Even if you are an average user, you may meet YouTube buffering issue while watching live streams. The buffering you encounter from live steam is caused by server overload of the corresponding channel.

The two situations can be fixed with one method–get a good VPN (Virtual Private Network). Through VPN, your ISP doesn’t know what you are streaming. VPN can lead you directly to the server without passing by the ISP to reduce the speed loss and avoid the restrictions. Using a VPN helps you in securing your privacy as well.

You can use the VPN you already have, if you don’t have one, it’s recommended to use NordVPN.

NordVPN can bypass geo-restrictions to get all add-ons desired, keeps you protected from snooping eyes, and secures your data to keep your online activity private. It’s safe and easy to use!

  1. Download NordVPN in your device.
  2. Run NordVPN and open it.
  3. Connect to a server in a chosen location.
