The jerky, slow loading videos you’re trying to smoothly stream on YouTube aren’t only failing on your computer. Over the past 24 hours I’ve seen an increasing number of YouTube Lag complaints showing up in tweets, live commentary on ustream and other blogs. My YouTube experience has been less than stellar for the past several weeks. I’ve even Googled it a few times initially to make sure it wasn’t just a problem with my ISP.
Is this some sick joke Google is pulling on us? Where they place tons of new ads on, in, and around videos, then drop the quality of service through the floor? Is the $1.5M per day YouTube has been losing for the past year finally starting to put a dent in the cash chest?
Are you experiencing slowdowns with YouTube? Do you think this is a temporary problem or the start of the YouTube bubble burst?
