Youtube taking very long to load

Youtube never seemed to be a problem in the past, but these days, it is taking ages to load a video.

My firewalls are off. And I have got Broadband. Can anyone tell me why it is soo slow?

How long does it take you to load a 24 minute video?

Its taken me more than 10 minutes. :S

I have just tried to load the video file again once it has finished. Usually it would load faster becoz I have already loaded it before. I then loaded it a third time, but the speed of loading it remained slow.

Why is this? I have allocated 50mb of cache already. Isnt this enough? I really need help. Why isnt Youtube doing what it is meant to?

For a start put your firewall back on quickish ;-)

Run a virus check and if ok run crap cleaner, then defrag your pc.

Are you sure defragging my PC will work? I thought it was something to do with the Internet. I always run my Crap Cleaner after I come off the Internet.

That leaves scanning my PC. I doubt I have a virus or anything since everything else works perfectly well.

I am having a same problem from long time when I type then it will not even load just say connecting... for whole day. so what i am doing is I bookmarked the history page of youtube and just click there and it load in less then 3 sec and just search new song in search bar.

but if there is any solution then it would be great .
