      Youtube's Videos slow?

      Hello, firstly before I continue I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong section.

      My problem is when I try to load a video on youtube it either loads very slowly or doesn't load at all but when im on another website that streams video it loads perfectly fine, is it just me or is it just youtube?


      Also I have cleaned out my cache etc on my browser and that hasn't helped.

      Some vides on youtube from time to time can be slow to load or not at all, refreshing the page can sort the problem.

      I did that, all the videos I watch on YouTube either load very very slow or don't load at all.

      I find rebooting the router always works for me anyway, when videos are loading slow.

      It's You Tube. Video downloading has been getting slower and slower for months now. I think since Google took over. Nearly every video clip will start to download ok initially, then eventually grind to a halt about a third of the way through leaving the clip skipping along waiting for the data to catch up. There are many many folk complaining of this issue, but trying to contact Google is like trying to contact aliens from outer space.

      Its those ISPs, they're throttling Youtube because we use that site a lot. Other sites work because those other sites don't have as much stuff on them. Give it time, they'll start throttling those other sites if one ever becomes as popular as Youtube.

      Sky don't throttle or traffic manage any of their LLU connections so yet again you are talking rubbish. You really don't have a clue do you???

      People from all over the world are having the same problem, many with 50Mb connections. It's You Tube (Google) who are metering the limits in some way.

      why is you tube so ****ing slow - YouTube Help

      On that basis Google must always run at a crawl.
