Re: Youtube slow buffer.

Yea, I'm currently getting a wonderful .9mbps on my 50/5 connection. It's taken at least 20 minutes to buffer a 10 minute 1080P video and it's only buffered 2:45 worth of it so far. So freaking pissed when I know it's been much much faster. I've seen it max out my connection before.

Edit: Well I had put that blocking rule in place before I posted this hoping that would help and I also run adblock so thought maybe that would do it. Turns out adding the firewall rule actually hurt it instead. I did some quick tests with different settings and for some reason now it works fine with the rule off and adblock on. Below are my tests just for reference.

rule off, adblock off, FF - 20mbps

Rule on, adblock on, FF - .5

rule on, adblock off, FF - .5

rule off, adblock on, FF - 20mbps
