Windows 7: YouTube and it's damn random buffering problems!

YouTube and it's damn random buffering problems!

Why Google with all it might, money and intellect cannot fix the random buffering issues with YouTube videos is beyond me. Sometimes I go to YT, select a video, it buffers right up and in the same session, go watch another and its freezing/buffering every 60 seconds! Been through YouTube and Adobe's crap troubleshooting with no improvement. Also witnessed this happening at other locations so its not my PCs or internet connection.

You know Google owns YouTube, right?

Ehhh. I don't keep up with those things . Or more likely I knew it five years ago but it's still Youtube in my mind.

I like in that article how it says Yahoo should buy Facebook. LOL.

Does the YouTube buffering only happen when you are watching HQ content eg 720px, 1080px and the lo-res is OK ? If yes then its a slow connection and/or slow computer.

I'm watching them on the lowest quality setting and I'm on a 15Mb connection. Same crap happens at work on a T1.
