    BT and YouTube

    Does anyone have trouble with BT Broadband and YouTube? Last year it started pausing when watching videos or refusing to download the rest after only going part way through the video. YouTube has become almost unuseable now as the videos don't play and require me to sit there for ages letting the red bar fill and download the whole lot. In some cases, the video pauses even though the circle doesn't reach the end of the red bar.

    Is there anything I can do to remedy (been searching for a year to find the fix) this or is it time for an ISP change?

    What makes you certain its BT?

    If its buffered fully (bar fills up) yet still doesn't play I'd be looking at your codecs.

    i have found that nearly all the video's you have to wait about a minute before it starts to play..

    once it starts playing.. its fine..
