    HI

    Not sure where to put this but is any one having trouble trying to watch videos on You Tube?

    Its been ever so slow for the last few weeks now.

    most videos take ages to load and when they do they keep jumping.

    It was going better on my PC but seems to be slowing right down on that now as well.

    I presume you have BB? Perhaps on ISP end?

    For some reason despite BB, youtube was crawling to a halt on uni network. Even at dead times. Once I moved out of halls and into flat and got Be* BB I am flying again

    I dont think it was due to some maintenance going on their servers some weeks ago, It might be your PC or ISP.., or maybe some virus slowing down streaming videos..

    Many ISPs can and do 'slow down' access to Youtube (and similar sites).
    If I was running a uni network I would slow it down as well - I bet it figures highly in the traffic stats...
