SpeedBit is famous for its download accelerating software that can be used to dramatically speed up file transfers from web pages. SpeedBit Video Accelerator for mac works in much the same way as the company’s other tool, but has been designed specifically with video transfers in mind.

The tool can be used to reduce the buffering of videos from the likes of YouTube, Metacafe and Dailymotion, as well as purchases you have made through iTunes. Just as with Download Accelerator Plus, SpeedBit Video Accelerator works by downloading the same file from multiple locations simultaneously.

This helps to overcome any bottlenecks that can arise when attempting to watch a popular video that is being streamed by a large number of people at the same time. The app works with both standard resolution video and HD quality streams, and not only helps you to start viewing faster, but also eliminate buffering.

SpeedBit Video Accelerator integrates with your web browser and automatically detects when video is being streamed, kicking into action without the need to manually launch anything. Because of this, aside from a noticeable improvement in video streaming performance it is easy to forget that the tool is installed – just how it should be.

Verdict

If you spend a lot of time streaming videos online, this tool is well worth the investment as it offers genuine improvements.
