  1. tried below path and played all high size files. failed since no files found for the youtube video I played. plz help.

    C:\Users\<>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

    1. Hi Shrikant ,
      can you tell me which Operating system you are using and with that can you give me the link of the video you watched.

      This trick is quite old right now, it was posted in 2012. So in this period youtube has made many updates and removed nearly all of its limitations. So I think this might be the reason its not working. But still I will try.
