Not sure where to put this but Youtube buffering on 720p ot higher a lot....

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Recently (like the past month) it seems that no matter where I watch youtube that on anything higher than 480p it is super slow and buffers throughout the video. It has happened in multiple homes and now in my new apartment.
My computer is in the sig.. i7 950 with AMD radeon 7950 graphics card. I am wired with gigabit Ethernet. Also I have a new SSD crucial m4 that I am using. Internet provider is Cox and I have the 25mbps but my last speed test was:
ping: 26ms Down: 32 mbps Up: 17mbps

so I am wondering why I am having a problem

When you select a higher resolution as the video is playing simply click on the slider on the timeline and it usually only takes a few seconds before the resolution changes.

It is not that it won't change to the higher resolution it is that after it changes it starts to freeze every few seconds and buffer again which takes forever

Your provider might be throttling youtube. Chances are pretty good they are doing that.

If your pingtest shows good, you have good download speeds everywhere else, but your video streaming is crap... they could likely be throttling either specific sites or just all streaming video traffic.

Call them and complain. If they say its fine and it itsn't, then start shopping for a new provider. Bandwidth throttling is unacceptable.

This is what I would do.

how do I do the pingtest to see if that is good and also is their a better site than speedtest.net?
Have you guys ever complained about this issue to a provider and they actually did anything?
There just aren't many choices here (chandler, az) as far as cable goes

edit: and just tried streaming some twitch videos on 720p and higher and they run fine

This. Alot of ISP's throttle youtube. Worse yet, now more and more are throttling Twitch.tv also.

I mean speed test, not "ping test". Speed test is fine... mostly.

The bigger problem is, if you get a good speedtest result, is whether or not you have a shady ISP that is intentionally screwing you out of bandwidth. They might also be "cheating" by optimizing their connection for speedtest too, another thing that happens.

It's not you. I've had problems the last few days at home and at work and they are 45 miles away on different ISPs and different computers. Eventually it works but it takes a while.
