NTL Speedup, but YouTube Slowdown

  Pesala 23:10 16 Oct 2006

Only since tonight, I noticed that NTL b/b is now running at 2 Mbytes. This seems to have been an automatic change for all users.

However, YouTube has slowed down so much as to become unusable. Popular videos e.g. click here now download at just 5 or 10K. However, if I view a less popular video like some Buddhist chanting it comes down at 60K without pausing at all.

Is there perhaps some setting I can change in Opera to fix this problem? Have others noticed this dramatic slowdown? Is it perhaps to do with a huge increase in users since Google bought YouTube?

All OK here Pesala - I'm on NTL 2Mb too, & tried your link with Opera, initially on Avant with no problem with it either. Have you tried an Opera uninstall/reinstall, or even clearing its cache? G

Transferring at about 30K without stuttering.
