I tired everything I switched to many browsers many operating systems, what's the solution? Buy a 10,000 dollars brand new computer to watch 480p quickest as I can like an airplane or I buy android tv or tablet instead? YouTube said that it works fast on IoT devices only they only support hd like 720p and above with fast connection, how come? If PCs have 20 inch screen atleast with fast specs? It should be fast all devices including computers not just IoT devices like tablets, apple tv, smartphones and etc!

Oh - that thing is so old. Some 12 years at least.
You don't need $10k pc to get a better performance. You can do that with a $300 pc (new), if you reuse some of your old parts.

I don't have that much money, so what do u recommend me to upgrade? The ram or CPU to make it faster? Otherwise I'll use apple tv right now! My dad uses it once a week only in his living room with 30 inch led samsung screen because!
 
I already spent money upgrade the ram from 2 gb to 4 gb, brought new Nvidia zotac on it and SSD drive on for 100 bucks all I don't have money anymore! F PCs F YouTube F Microsoft and F bill gates all on my D!
That was pointless. Only sensible purchase of those was SSD.

So 2GB DDR2 ram - $10, SSD - $20-$30.
You paid $60 for GT710 ? I'm sorry - that was not a very good purchase.

And now you're angry at YouTube, Microsoft and bill gates for your poor purchase decisions.

Yh, Why it opens on VLC player faster than desktop? Why all websites are faster than YouTube? I'm sure Netflix, Amazon prime, twitch, x videos and all these are faster than YouTube on desktop or also slow?

It doesn't matter if I upgrade my PC or not, on VLC player it's faster than a web browser!

I'm kind of surprised nobody has suggested using hardware acceleration in the browser, like VLC uses.

Back in the olden days of yore when your PC was new and dinosaurs roamed the earth, Youtube used MP4 based on H.263 and even considerably weaker PCs than yours like Pentium 4 or Pentium M could play 1080p videos in software! However as Youtube began to host far more videos they went to more highly compressed H.264 to save on both the storage space and bandwidth required. Obviously this required much more CPU power to decode. Even worse is the even more compressed later H.265 or VP9 (which Youtube chose because they didn't want to pay the licensing fees for H.265)

See, Youtube today is mostly VP9 but has increasingly over the past year been switching over to AV1 (the former VP10 project, mostly on their 4k+ videos). Your Kepler GPU is too old to hardware accelerate either of those, so your poor CPU has to decode them entirely in software

However you are in luck because your GT710 does support H.264 hardware assist, which is what VLC is using. All you have to do is tell Youtube to only send over videos in H.264 format. The most straightforward way to do that is to install the H264ify plugin/extension in Chrome or Firefox, so if the video is available in that format it will be sent to your browser in H.264 to greatly improve performance and reduce the load on your CPU.

Honestly, a $100 refurbed office PC could probably do what they want.

I had one of those semprons, and it was painfully slow. I normally do not recommend spending money on such old rigs, but this isn't a huge expense, and would be a massive improvement, vs that old single core sempron.
