If you want more info as to why this happens then follow this link. It is from a COX thread but they have the same issue. In the middle of the thread is a good explanation complete with pictures.
»[ALL] Youtube streaming fixed by switching to non-Cox DNS server
What did I say? Oh yeah . . .switching doesn't fix it.

It may be a temporary solution but it can resurface at ANY time with ANY ISP.

Ive seen a lot of problems with streaming video, for me its not a DNS issue its well, it will get going good then it starts stalling like crazy, literally if i download the video directly its fine, or if i get on a proxy its fine, something about the way the FLV clients themselves are... happens in all browsers with different versions of flash,

but hehe if i try to use qwests dns servers i cant connect to half the internet [i use opendns]
