Has Youtube been slow for you guys too?
« on: 07:03 PM - 11/25/12 »
Trying to figure out if I'm having connection issues or if it's on Youtubes side. Started the week BO2 came out. I used to always watch videos in 720p without any buffering. Now I struggle to watch them on 480. Just got a new 150$ router during the black Friday sales, so idk what else it could be.

Here is my internet specs for reference.

today the upload to youtube was really slow, but besides that i dont have any issues in watching youtube videos on 1080p or even original size in a fast and smooth way
videos load instantly for me, and my connection is only half as fast as yours

sometimes it's like that, when I had fios which was never below 3MB/s (25+mb) for me I loaded super slow when at the same time my friend with Comcast would load it super fast if I sent it to him

Yeah I have a feeling it has something to do with my end. I might have a tech come take a look. I wonder what video buffer has to do with. Has to be bandwidth right?

Edit: seems to be working fine now but it's not in peak time. It's 1:30AM here so I'll have to try it tomorrow. Also plan on trying different browsers. Chrome is the browser I've been having this issue with.
