Buffering - Definition

A Buffer is a section of memory in your computer, which allows for the simultaneous writing and reading of information. The YouTube video player downloads a video as it plays. The buffered section is represented by the red section of the video timeline. The YouTube video player reads video information from one section of the buffer while writing to another. This kind of multitasking allows for smoother playback of video during a continuous process of downloading which is especially helpful for slower connections.
