Youtube playback quality degrading?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Lokire, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. I've noticed that over the last 6-months or so, youtube video playback has become significantly less smooth. It's more jerky and choppy than it used to be. Seems to be that way on all the videos I watch on youtube now. Some of which are the exact same videos that used to be super smooth before. Has anyone else noticed this? It's been bugging me for a while now :meh:
  2. I have noticed this, which I thought was weird because I just upgraded to 25mbps internet and it still does it.

  3. I have noticed as well. I think they're stepping up the compression to counterbalance the amount of new content, and their bandwidth costs. :(

    Sorry, but as we all learned from the MarloweDK thread, we are not allowed to complain about Youtube because it's free.
  5. Maybe that's what you learned from it. That wasn't my position ;)

    Yes, I've noticed it.


    And we're not allowed to talk about not being able to complain about YT.
