Watching YouTube videos are always fun. Here are some random tips that will give you a better YouTube experience.
You could see the HQ button on the player that toggles the video quality between Normal and High quality.
Login to YouTube, which is pre-requisite for this tip, and go select Account->Playback Setup. You will get the following page.

In the same page, you can also find the option to turn-of annotations permanently for all videos. I would personally suggest to turnoff annotations, because most of the annotations in YouTube videos are useless; also distract the video playback.
Select your preferences and click on Save Changes.
