Why does Invidious download so slowly!? It takes me a WHOLE ENTIRE MINUTE to download a megabyte!

As a side note, please consider giving posts more useful titles, such as “Why is Invidious downloading so slowly?” and, since Invidious is a hosted software and not a single site, tell us which instance you’re using.

I used to use invidious.osi.kr and that was slow as heck, switched to vid.puffyan.us, same story

My point is that “INVIDIOUS” is a very unhelpful title, and it would be helpful to edit it into something more descriptive and less clickbaity.

Try a different server (I’d recommend this one).

If that doesn’t work, try running LibreSpeed to see if it’s you. If it is, you can try disabling any VPN, proxy, or Tor daemon you have running and try again, or simply turn your internet (whether it’s ethernet, WiFi, LiFi, or mobile data) off and on again.

I’ve tried your server, and it still doesn’t give me at least one meg every second

Weird. Which browser are you using?

Brave

Huh, weird. And what OS are you running?

Android

Keep in mind that I used Brave/Andr, Firefox/Andr, and Firefox/Pop, didn’t change anything

I think it must just be your internet. Sorry!

Then why is it only invidious sites that are so slow, I can download Pop! OS .isos and I get rather good speeds

It could be that your ISP is trying to slow down multimedia downloads. Try using a VPN, and see how an Invidious download compares to a Pop!_OS ISO.

If that fails, I’m afraid I’m all out of ideas.

maybe try a different invidious server?

self hosting is the only way you can guarantee speed. Public instances serve many people. There’s only so much they can handle.
