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.

    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.

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

    This differs per server. Some servers have more bandwidth and have better speed, while other servers have worse speeds.
