YouTube buffering problems :(


Recommended Posts

My ISP Virgin Media is suppose to be 10megs and yet the past few weeks I'm barley scratching the bandwidth requires to play YouTube videos.

So on a few days I'm just able to watch a video clip and moments like right now it's buffering like crazy.

One thing I can be certain is this problem is not my cable modem setup because I have no problems using rival video sites like Dailymotion.

 

So I was wondering does anyone know if YouTube has some kind of bandwidth control or is my ISP deliberately shafting my connection??

Virgin is too busy funding their F1 team. :P

 

I've always had buffering issues on YouTube! What I always do is let videos buffer for about one to two minutes before even attempting to watch them.

I may not be helpful but I too got that problem recently. I thought only those affected by the cable breakage in Asia is having buffering problems, seems that others have it too.

Hi Redhawk

I was with Virgin and they will choke your connection especially after 6 at night they did it to me so I left as soon as I could.

Sorry I could not be more helpfull but this may confirm your suspicions.
