Re: Qwest CenturyLink YouTube Service failure under deliver

I have the 20/5 package & I have noticed difficulty trying to play YT videos. In fact, there was a couple of days where anything that I attempted to play at either 720p or 1080p would not even play at all.

They aren't doing anything to it here and it plays fine. You probably just don't have enough speed to play a video.

I don't have any problem playing videos with the 20Mb package, in fact I can play 2 at once in HD on Netflix if I want to. You probably aren't really getting 20Mb or it's intermittent and not providing a constant high speed. Here's an HD video that I uploaded and I can play it just fine full screen without any problems. The buffer stays quite a ways ahead of the part that's playing and I can even play another video in HD at the same time. It looks like they downgraded the video quality a bit but it still plays OK full screen while a Netflix video plays in HD too.
