    Youtube videos loading like crap?

    I'm just having problems with youtube no matter what I try. I just can't get videos to buffer like I used to and they take forever to load. What's weird is youtube's advertisement videos work perfectly.

    I don't know what to do. I've cleared my temporary internet files, cache, cookies, etc. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Don't know what sorcery they do with their ads, it'll load a 30s add with ease but has to buffer on a 10s video...

    I think it's something on youtubes end. I've heard sometimes watching it in higher quality speeds up buffering depending on how many people are watching it in that quality. Probably not going to work every time but that's what I read.

    I've noticed this too. Youtube has gone downhill ever since Google took over.

    I have so many issues with YT. That's one of them. Also, I'm not seeing anyone's likes or favorites on my comp. I have to go to mobile to see everything.
    Since the layout change, they keep the same old stuff on my feed for days. I check my feed often and it's loaded with stuff from days and weeks ago, although I'm subbed to hundreds of channels.

    And the way they recommend videos is ridiculous. I've counted 15 in a row from the very top, then an actual sub video, then another string of recommend crap. Click on one video for a food recipe, and im given recommended food vids for months. I give up.

    Why does it always reload the video when I hit replay. It doesn't make any sense.
