Like I mentioned above, I keep my computer very clean and updated. I use Ccleaner at least twice a week to get the cookies and junk out. I also
Firefox and that is updated as well. With all I have read, it doesn't seem to be limited to just Firefox.
Could YouTube just be making some behind the scene changes and this will clear up eventually? I just hate to make a bunch of changes that might
actually make the problem worse by accident, when nothing was really wrong to begin with except for YouTube.
Man, I'm telling you, it has to do with # that goes on in the background, business wise that has nothing to do with cookies, spyware, temp files,
DNS, proxy, or anything that can be changed on the users side. There are supposed fixes, but these are band-aids at best, and only seem to work in
The main problem is our buffering is being limited. Normally, when you're streaming a movie, or video, the video will load itself into your systems
memory ahead of the point you're at. This allows for smooth playback basically. Now, what happens is instead of the video you're loading up being
allowed to fully buffer, it's being limited to a min or two, if even.
Watch your buffer bar, I bet it starts buffering, than pulls back, than does it all over again. It isn't really know by the general public, myself
included who's limiting this. Is it Youtube, your isp, or what? All that is know is you aren't being allowed to buffer the entire video.
If you we were not being limited, than the whole video would buffer and we'd be able to watch it seamless. Someone doesn't want this to happen, and
there is no true way around it. So, instead you get given 30 seconds of buffer, than buffer more, than buffer more.
I personally think it's to avoid uploading a full video that you're only going to watch say 10 min of before getting bored. They are saving
bandwidth. Now, if whatever source give incentive (monetary) for their videos to be fully buffered, than they won't have that issue.
