save the notepad file and reboot your system.
It cannot damage your system so give a try and let me know.

Myth - "Adding (made up command) = (imaginary number) to the System.ini or Win.ini file improves performance."

Reality - "ALL System.ini and Win.ini so-called "Tweaks" are made up nonsense. They include made up commands that do not exist followed by imaginary settings - thus doing absolutely nothing. The System.ini and Win.ini files are provided in Windows XP for backward compatibility with 16-bit (MS-DOS, Windows 3.x) applications. They have no effect on any Windows XP settings or 32-bit applications which are stored in the Registry."

Notes - These files are edited using the System Configuration Utility (Msconfig.exe) or Sysedit.

- Why 16-bit DOS and Windows are still with us (Raymond Chen, Microsoft Software Engineer)

I'm seeing a lot of copy paste with no good reason. If it continues then I will have to start dishing out AWIT warnings...

coming back to the topic, I tried this config but it didn't change anything ;/ youtube is still working like a slow turtle , especially while rush hours. I think there isn't any smart thing to tweak inside our Operating System to make playing videos better and smooth. Maybe some Condent Delivery Systems made by Youtube would change something with its performance and I hope they will try implementing such system in near future or maybe they made it already .. anyone have a clue about that ?

@butcher: I don't know if you've read Nemesis234's post but those commands in the System.ini file are nonsens

win.ini and system.ini are use in 16 bit windows. since windows 95, windows just use registry to store its setting. that's about 15 years ago.

the [386Enh] section of the system.ini file contains information specific to running windows in 386-enhanced mode. you need to do that for OS that can only address 1MB and using 386 cpu or older. that was about 25 years ago.

youtube was founded by ex paypal employees on 2005.

clearly there is something wrong with your instruction. maybe it was for viewing local file only on a very slow computer.

also, it's kind of baffling to cite the Internet as source. it's like Arthur Dent telling the Vogons he live in the universe. you got to be more specific, like citing your galaxy, planet, continent, country, street and house number.
