      You Tube getting worse

      Hi All,

      Is it just me or is You Tube getting worse and worse?

      I have a pretty good 10Mb down and 1Mb up connection, and although the web generally has started to slow during peak times over recent years, You Tube is
      becoming a PITA. Videos do not buffer anymore like they used to, they seem to buffer a small amount at a time, this small amount is not enough
      to stop the play slider from continually hitting the buffer limit thus stopping the video every minute or so. Moving the slider up or down is a no no too as the
      video's just won't load at the selected point.

      Anyone else having this kinda trouble?

      I am in the process of going through today's news stories to see to cross-post for the forum. In the process I have come across this story:
