Windows 7: YouTube issues?

YouTube issues?

YouTube has been broken for me for over a year now. It does not stream properly. It goes EXTREMELY slowly on the desktop version, but when played on my iPod touch, it runs very well. So, what's up with that? Is there any way of forcing it to buffer quicker on the desktop version?

If changing your DNS is something you want to look into check out Steve Gibson's DNS Benchmark utility.

No installation necessary and it works like a champ.
