Some days back YouTube removed the “Stop Download” feature from their player. They also removed video pre-buffering. In this article I will help you to get the “Stop Download” feature using bookmarklet/userscript.

How to Stop YouTube Video from Downloading -

Method 1: Bookmarklet

This is the easiest method and will work on all browsers. (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, etc). To use it, drag and drop the above bookmarklet to your Bookmarks toolbar. To stop a YouTube video while watching, just click on the bookmarklet and the video will stop downloading.
