How does netflix manage to buffer in HD while it is playing a video. Also it would reduce quality when the internet connection gets slow !! While on youtube when you change quality, it just stops for a moment and then buffers in the same quality. But netflix keeps switching dynamically based on internet speed .. Genius. Anyone got the answer ?

There is no to "trick" or "fool" the viewing software, it detects the actual download speed and latency during streaming.
