Why does Youtube suck now?

None of the videos load completely. they pause at five-ten second intervals.

Even if I hit pause to let them load completely, they stop loading after they reach a few seconds down the line.


Is it just my cpu's or is it like that for everyone? If it is just mine, how can I fix it?

Works fine on my computer. But at my dad's, it does what you were just describing. He usually has a ton of other windows open, weather radar running, an eagle nest webcam..... all that seems to "clog" up his internet.

Do you have a lot of other windows/tabs open? Have you defragged recently/empty the cache, temporary internet files, cookies, etc?

That's the thing, if I stream a movie or tv show on putlocker, it is done in less than ten minutes for a two hour movie, five for a tv show.


I don't get it. It can't be internet connection.

Unless my VPN is fricking up, it loads fine for me.

It has been acting weird tonight for me. It is usually fine, besides the damn ads!

It does suck now, but for none of the reasons you listed.

Advertising, hipsters, money, google, and 12 year olds that try to hard, and the insufferable reenactments to movies and TV shows has near ruined that site.

There are however a few gems that shine from time to time and make it worth visiting.

I have this problem and have a pretty respectable internet connection. Now if this starts happening to porn heads are gonna roll.

Seriously?

How do you not have Adblock installed?

Ad block does not stop ads loading before the videos.

Some of the videos have ads before the actual video plays.

Not pop up ad windows.

Adblock Plus for Chrome blocks video ads.

It's available for Firefox as well...

It appears regular Adblock blocks video ads as well. I was under the impression that only Adblock Plus provided this feature, but I just went through about 25 videos in Chrome Canary with Adblock and didn't see one video ad.
