Before I start, I would like to apologize if I have put this in the wrong section. This just seemed to fit best.

My issue is Youtube videos. For the past 4 or 5 days, a lot of Youtube videos will refuse to load fast. This just started, as everything loaded fine about a week ago. This only happens to some videos. It doesn't load fast, so the video stops every few seconds. My internet is the same speed as before. Some videos load properly, while others don't. For example, I was able to watch a 17 minute video completely perfect without any loading problems whatsoever. However, when I tried to watch a 2 minute video, it wouldn't stream fast and it would keep stopping. Please help me!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I think this is a problem with youtube at the moment. I have been having a lot of problems in around the same amount of days as you. I have also noticed that youtube seems to be having a lot of matience latly also and they have changed a few things.

All I can say is try waiting a little longer for now, and also I found sometimes pressing F5 (refresh) has helped me a little bit on some videos.
