I've heard of many people complaining about the speed that YouTube streams videos lately. Even low quality videos go extremely slow on my system sometimes whereas they seem to be fast in other systems. I do not think that there is any problem with the internet connection I have, as it handles other websites and downloads very well. Are there certain settings I could check to fix this issue or is it a problem with YouTube's distribution servers itself?
- I am in the United States using Time Warner's Road Runner cable.
- I access the internet over ethernet through a DD-WRT router (Linksys WRT54G)
- I use an HP laptop; 1.6GHz Core Duo with 4GB ram on Win XP Pro.
