    Has youtube been slow for anyone lately? It's been loading videos much slower then it used to as of late, but every other website seems to load just fine. I was wondering if it was virgin media throttling me or if it is actually youtube being slow.

    Yeah same here... At first, I thought it was just taking awhile to load the HD, but standard quality videos are take awhile to load too.

    Seems fine to me as well. Maybe you both were just unlucky and watched something when the server was being hit hard.

    No, this is happening fairly frequently now. Not just a one off.

    ISPs throttling people has been rampant in Britain these past few days, perhaps that's the reason?

    I've actually sort of noticed it too, but it's not too bad. Not to the point where it has to buffer every second whilst I'm trying to watch it.
