I have a slow internet connection and I changed the setting in YouTube to "I have a slow connection and never play HD video". Even so, it starts loading the video in 360, so that every time I need to change it to 240. I tried setting even auto, but it keeps getting pauses.

Is there anyway to change it to 240 permanently?

yes I did that: I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video. But even so it plays video in 360 –  eagleye Oct 21 '12 at 19:00
