Re: Youtube Buffering

I have all kinds of issues. Some of my customers have 2 meg connections and are having troubles. I haven't really looked into why.

I also hate how they've limited the buffer time. I know there's work arounds for that, but i can't be explaining those to customers all the time.

In doing some general searches, I found plenty of complaints from other people, some of those on sub-megabit speeds and some on 100mbps fiber, with many being 10, 20, 30 meg connections.

Lots of theories, but nothing that seems to work consistently. Some suggested MTU changes, which sounded plausible, but didn't seem to make a bit of difference for me no matter what I set them to.

I've read a lot of general consensus that Youtube just has overloaded servers, which I guess might make sense on a regional level, but then I would think everyone in that region would have the same issues.
