I`m with UPC 30mb package and I just get constant buffering on Youtube videos its driving me crazy. I`m in the Kildare area is anyone else having this problem. I ran some speed checks and everything is fine no problems there. I would also like to know if anyone knows how to force youtube videos to play in 480p without switching to 720p in full screen which causes it to buffer again. Thanks for reading this and any comments you leave.

I'm in Dublin and I've been getting the same problem for the past couple of weeks myself. Speed Test is saying I'm getting my full speeds yet I'm struggling to buffer videos in 240p. I've a friend who is also with UPC in Tallaght who's getting the same problem as well. I really hope UPC aren't throttling...

Tried the big 3 and same result. I've no problem loading HD videos on Vimeo or any other sites, it's just YouTube.

youtube changed there streaming algorithm to save bandwith, lots of complaints about it.

This is rumour mill only: Youtube is throttled unless you create an account. Not the ISP's fault.

Chrome canary is a bitch for screwing up streaming sites such as Youtube. I went back to Chrome.

Is that the start of an advertisement time? Usually a small advertisement (clear rectangle window) will pop up and you can just x it out.

No problems with YT at all here in Clondalkin on UPC 50mb.I use Google DNS instead of UPC's one if that makes any difference.

Its not your internet connection/set up. Its youtubes servers. There have been a couple of threads asking the same question before.

Hi folks

In relation to You Tube what version of Adobe Flash Player are you using? It seems the earlier versions cause buffering on a 1080P video.

So may I suggest that to update the version of Flash Player to the latest (11.3.300.252 plus the latest version of Shockwave from adobe.com) and try running a 720P or 1080P video on You Tube and see what happens. It has worked for me as a result and I am on a 30Mb package (Digiweb)
