Re: YouTube videos slow loading/buffering?

YouTube. If you toggle the quality enough, change video servers by using a script to manipulate the URL the Flash player is calling, or reload the page a few times you'll get a faster server.

Gr8 Tip from Smith6612- I pressed play, then pause (1080 version) it took just over 60 seconds to load with 5 up/ 4 down Fios connection.
Op do you have similar issues with other YouTube downloads?

I should point out too. There's a nifty Greasemonkey script called YousableTubeFix on Userscripts.org that disables the Buffer limit on the YouTube player. I find that to be very helpful especially when speed is an issue.

Can you clarify where that setting is in Yousable Youtube Fix, Im in settings and only see something to stop autobuffering.

It's automatically set by the script and can't be shut off unless you disable auto buffering as you're seeing.

Good 'ol slowtube. I've also been noticing buffering issues more often lately. Definitely a slowtube problem though.

Its a real annoyance but the only one I have with FIOS, funny thing is it never did it when I was on optimum but I had constant connection problems with OOL so go figure.
