Re: Horrible youtube speeds

I'm noticing this issue as well. Youtube works great over my Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel. I captured some traceroutes for some of the servers I had trouble with:

In the first traceroute, it seems the connection gets slow around the XO hop. The other two traceroutes slow down around the Sprint hops.
