Look for the Giraffic Icon in the task bar while playing video on YouTube or Vimeo (or your favorite video site).
If the Icon is Green – it works. If not – it doesn’t, and you might want to check your internet settings.
Note that some systems hide tray icons, so make sure that the icon is not hidden.
Look for the “Giraffic Video Accelerator” in the Start menu, and run it.
Double click on the Giraffic Icon, and see if the Acceleration is enabled

We work with leading video websites and other media broadcasters in order to improve their video delivery and improve your viewing experience. The internet is full of congestion and bottlenecks, and delivering high quality video is challenging. With the Giraffic Video Accelerator we deliver content from multiple sources simultaneously, enabling you a rich and smooth viewing experience, significantly reducing re-buffering or jittering during video playback.
Nope! Quite the contrary! The Giraffic application should be transparent to the user and improve the speed of downloads and streaming of videos from the websites using the Giraffic application.
The Giraffic application is very polite and non-disruptive. We sometimes use a small fraction of your upload bandwidth, typically about 10% (40-60 Kbps), and if we do, will always try to use your resources only when your computer is idle.
Giraffic’s application will automatically yield to anything else running on your computer, so if you’re surfing the web, or doing anything else which does not require the Giraffic video accelerator, we will step down and not use your bandwidth or computer resources at all.
Giraffic does use a small fraction of local disk space , but we will only utilize a small percentage of your current FREE space, but usually we won't take more than 500MB, so don't worry about it. If you are on a Mobile Device or Tablet - we are not using ANY of your disk space whatsoever to cache any data.
Never! Our installer is clean as a whistle and is digitally signed by Thawte.
Giraffic software has been certified and signed by leading signage and software download sites such as Softpedia.
Of course! Using Giraffic is free of charge.
Giraffic is smart enough to auto-update itself, so you can keep that off your mind. If you're running Giraffic, you're always running the latest and greatest version of The Giraffic Video Accelerator!
If you're not satisfied with Giraffic you can always remove it from the Add\Remove programs, just like any other application on your machine, and we guarantee that no trace of Giraffic software shall remain on your hard drive, registry or elsewhere
Typically Giraffic should always be running and connected as long as you have installed it and your computer is online.
If for any reason whatsoever the Giraffic software doesn’t work you are always guaranteed seamless fallback to the website’s regular video playback – without using Giraffic.
If Giraffic is being blocked by a firewall software, your router or a corporate security system - Please manually open port 43261 on your firewall to enable it.
Giraffe + Traffic.
Meaning: we are the Giraffe that turns the “long-tail” of content traffic into the “long-neck” – i.e. the main thing!
Giraffe is typically a majestic and cute creature, and so are we…J
