They first need to fix their server load issues. Over the past few weeks, my buffer speeds have been getting worse, at random times during the day. Often as slow as 200Kbps. Then it decides to buffer at roughly 20Mbps whenever it feels like it.

Before people claim I have some sort of malware, guess again. I'm sure others have noticed the slowdowns as of late.

Yeah, I've had issues with videos just not loading, and often.

I've noticed it as well. One trick I've found is that the various resolutions of a video are often on different servers. There's been many times I've loaded 720p video faster than 360p. Just try changing the resolution (even if you're moving up).

[citation][nom]halodude23[/nom]about time, should make a 1 hour limit, that would be sick![/citation]


It would be nice. I know YouTube is already sucking an insanely massive amount of bandwidth and space on Googles servers, but they disabled the old trick to make 2 hour videos where you just had to change your settings from a regular to "Director". Now you actually have to be a YouTube Partner and fill out an application which gets reviewed to even be considered.

At least they are upping it, lets hope it's like their "ever growing email storage" program they have with Gmail.

[citation][nom]xerroz[/nom]adblocker + no script seem to block all ads in youtube videos[/citation]
I only use Adblocker, and I wasn't even aware that there are ads on Youtube? I've never seen a single one.

I never realized YouTube had a time limit until they upped it (no, I've never tried to upload anything). I guess, from the crap about content ID, they were worried that videos more than 10 minutes in length might be able to sneak 5 seconds of the theme from Love Boat past the content filter, and that Aaron Spelling's widow wouldn't get her $0.0000005 worth of royalties.

^This.

I've seen many videos that exhibit the same issue, sometimes higher resolutions load faster. Of course, there are times the opposite is true as well, but I haven't had a video with low speed problems that I wasn't able to speed up by using a different resolution.
