Re: [Cable] Youtube lags at night still, upgrade cache servers?

It has been really odd because you can watch a video that buffers perfect, followed by a video that won't buffer at all, followed by another video that goes perfect..

I find if I try to replay a video later that didn't buffer earlier, it still doesn't work.

I would check which cache node you're hitting with each time you're playing. It sounds like you're hitting a different node each time the behaviour changes.

Look here:

Also, you can try viewing a video (make sure it gets loaded completely), then closing the page and reopening it again. There is a good chance that it will play from the cache server the second time.

yes, i would also have videos that would just stop buffering entirely 20-50% in requiring me to refresh the page and it usually fixed it. these seem to all be signs of broken caching.
