Re: Youtube

When I run pytomo_windows_x86.exe and enter the data as..

y :enter
Teksavvy Solutions :enter
:enter (no proxy)

it then fails to fetch my public IP address, where can I enter it manually?

Don't worry about that. You're running on a router, so it can't verify a public IP. They can still log all the relevant information.

I've got this setup and running. I'll do a run now, and again around 9:00 p.m. tomorrow for a 'good case' / 'bad case' comparison.

Hope this helps!

Forgot to say that it asks me to stop the crawl just after saying that it can't fetch the public IP.

right now I'm running "pytomo_web_interface_windows_x86.exe" and it says it runs on sevver 0.0.0.0:5555

Ya, it's just telling you that if you need to stop the crawl, you can do so with Ctr-C.

If you look at it, you can see that it spawned a process that's out there crawling away like a madman.

I don't follow... If you didn't enter any info, it should be doing a 10k video list...

You don't have to watch youtube to have it work. You just launch the executable, and it goes out to youtube and grabs streams and benchmarks them.

That's fine, it's just a warning but the program still runs.

To clarify things, yes it does gran "up to" 10,000 videos by default which is obviously a lot. You don't need to run it for that long, that could quite obviously take a very long time. Only run it for a few hours preferably at peak. Better would be about 24h

You can then send us the logs at support@teksavvy.com

I uploaded a ~12hr run to the direct forum earlier this morning.

Here's a bit of cosmic irony: while the program is running, streaming is better than it's been in ages.

I don't experience any streaming issues with Youtube. when I watch videos on Youtube I make sure that I am not downloading anything else, that can consume speed of my connection.

Thanks for the email Gabe.

I ran this last night from 8PM to 10PM which is pretty well primetime. Tonight I will try to run it again for a 24hr sweep from another PC.

this youtube page might help diagnose the problem, it should provide an average of your download speeds from the last month.

»www.youtube.com/my_speed

My average with a different ISP is 18Mbit/sec.

I started it last night at 9 pm... I'll let it run until just before I go to bed tommorrow night. You'll get a nice 48 hour period with two full peak times.

Do I just pack up the db file in a rar and email it? Do you also want the log file it produced?

May as well send the DB and log. More information is always better.

Wow, can other people on cable preferably post the speed they get @ youtube.com/my_speed? I just realized that I averaged 4mbps recent and that is horrid (see screenshot below).

On a site note, has anyone attempt the iptables/router workaround by blocking specific Google servers that throttle your connection to youtube apparently?

said by twizzler66:

Just an FYI (and if this is truly a case of blocking primary servers and accessing backup servers it doesn't really resolve the issue), but blocking the IP ranges talked about in this thread - »Youtube is slow - have resulted in a 100% improvement on streaming youtube for me - unfortunately it does jack squat to fix issues with twitch.tv....

...now if only someone could provide a similar (if temporary) fix for twitch tv...

OK, we can try...

Step 1) Open up twitch.tv in your browser, when it's running slowly

Step 2) If you're running linux, pop open a terminal and execute

lsof -i > x.txt

If you're running Windows, open a command.com or cmd.exe terminal, and execute

netstat -a -b -f > x.txt

When the command prompt returns, copy+paste the contents of x.txt in a message. That'll give an idea of which server you're using.

We randomly have the buffer issue with youtube, where it refuses to buffer at all.

Right now, I'm running the pytomo program, while my son is watching a youtube video which isn't having any problems buffering (probably because he watches the same video several times a day?).

does he watch them in HD too? when i had issues with TSI/youtube reloading the page multiple times would eventually make it go through.

i also had tried using youtube downloaders and the actual HTTP download would time out too.

OK, this is an interesting result. I'm using a download plugin for firefox to download a video. Something less popular, will only get a few thousand views. It's been downloading at 150-400KByte/s. Mostly 150, sometimes climbing up to 400+.

I load husky's latest video (watch?v=69YAadYgMj4&feature=youtube_gdata) Not only does it load at close to 1MByte/s the video that I'm downloading also speeds up to >1Mbyte/s. I was able to repeat this a couple of times. This would explain why videos will download quickly at say 6PM when I get home, but if I have to reload the video later (ie when Chrome decides to wipe the video cache) it will load very slowly. Typically when I get home I'm pre-buffering several videos many of them from more popular sources (ie The Game Station sources, Yogscast etc).

Hm, mine was only 99 KB, but then I only ran it for 5 hours or so.

My 48+ hour run generated a 1.2 MB .db file and a 4 MB compressed log file (50 MB uncompressed!).
