One of my youtube accounts slows down my entire computer but the other does not

I thought it was the HTML5/Flash thing but that's not it
When I'm logged in with one of my accounts if I watch videos they freeze up my entire browser, they take longer to load and often the quality is reduced to the lowest possible because the whole thing comes to a halt, so I manually have to increase the video quality.
I've thoroughly tested this and it only happens on one of the two accounts.

I don't understand how this is possible but it happens on more than one computer

google is trying to force you to use the one with your real name by breaking your other account

Try clearing your watch history.

I've had this same issue before. Clear out your cookies and browser history. You may want to use a third party browser eraser program to make sure the files from your browser are actually erased.

I'd rather not clear my cookies, but I do clean the cache regularly and that seems to help a little, but it messes up again.

I don't mind cleaning the watch history if that's going to help, I favorite all the videos I need and recommendations don't interest me so I'll give that a shot too.

Why do you dislike cleaning cookies? Are you too lazy to login to various accounts after the cleaning? The answer might be right in front of you, but you won't try it.

i think there is actually some truth to this. a week ago i went on youtube and everything on my account was gone, all favs, abos, everything. then a message about google+ popped up and before i knew it i was logged in with my (fake) real name...
i cant change it back, absolutely nothing works. this is such bull!
