YouTube streaming problems


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone else here have problems with buffering interruptions when streaming YouTube videos - primarily HD videos?

My FTTC service was installed on Wednesday and speed test results suggest an excellent connection with up to 38Mbs down and 8Mbs up. I can upload at 1MB per second - a 320MB video uploaded in 5 and a half minutes. But it's really slow coming the other way.

No obvious problems with BBC iPlayer or Vimeo.

I'm with Fast.co.uk and they are trying things, but no success in solving this problem so far.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else here with FTTC also has YouTube problems specifically.

Thanks,

Ian

You can also right click on the YT flash player screen and select "Take speed test".

Yes, found that - the rate is quite variable and it says frames are dropped.

Try this:

Don't forget to switch to 1080p mode.

On BE the test just says at the top:

"Your average video speed at this location from Jan 26, 2011 to Feb 24, 2011 was 4.12 Mbps."

jchamier,

You have to click the link "Show Test Video" lower down the page. 'The test video will show you your streaming information in real time (look next to "Streaming HTTP").'

Ok, I'm using Flash 10.2.152.26 in IE 8 (32bit) on Windows 7 x64, and I get this:

The window seems all crunched up in the top left, but I can just see I'm getting about a constant 14mbps. In Firefox I seem to get a constant 8mbps on the same PC.

Good news to report, YouTube HD video streaming is much better today. I just hope it stays that way!
