Re: Youtube slow buffer.

Where are you located? If you're in SoCal - I've been having horrible connections at night time as of late - past 8:00PM that makes everything slow down to a crawl. Everything before that is peachy. Not sure what is going on.

More relevant in general, I know some people have mentioned that using an ad-blocker of any sort will cause Youtube to be slower than usual. That's because Google Analytic keeps trying to reach your player for data and it's being rebuffed; so it tries again. Same thing happens on Twitch with adblock too.
