Re: Youtube sucks for me

I've done some more packet capturing, here's a larger list of bad hosts. The loopback addresses are in place because I'm adding them to my hosts file as I encounter them. I didn't trace to all of them, but I assume they have the extra 2 hops after the AT&T > Google handoff we've seen with the previous ones.

I also observed some of these servers having an issue. I'd suspect it has to do w/ the peering (although it appears to be post AT&T handoff).

Either way, null routing that list appears to have helped and I'll continue to monitor this thread until we get something better than a band-aid figured out

Thanks for the tip about blocking youtube servers. Blocking this one worked for me.

Note there are a lot of people who suggest using 0.0.0.0 in the hosts file instead of 127.0.0.1. Some say there is no advantage to 0.0.0.0, but I have not seen anybody say that 0.0.0.0 has a disadvantage.
