I like watching YouTube videos using the HTML5 player rather than the Flash player because I can get 60 FPS video. However since I have poor internet, I would like to be able to pause the video and wait for it to buffer fully. This requires me to disable DASH playback. I have been unable to find a tool or extension to do this while remaining with the HTML5 player. Is this possible? I'm using Google Chrome.
There now are extensions around that disable DASH playback (notably the YouTube Center extension), but note that disabling DASH also disables all resolutions except 360p and 720p30.
