Default Youtube trying to pull bs on me...

I live in the fuckn US, I right clicked the soccer ball (because videos load super slowly) and did a speed test, It said US:85% You:20%

I was like wtf! So now I'm wondering what the hell they did to there site that caused them to lie and pull bs on people.

I used to load videos instantly, now on Youtube with all of their updates:
# minuts for a minute longer video (average)

You know what youtube:

I live in fucking Germany and two hours ago, Youtube didnīt load anything besides a "Google Server Error" page. So I guess itīs just maintenance. But what I really hate are the commercials they show before the requested video loads.

These are paid to the TradeMark, like to IGN or EA, they Are paid to add that in. So I'm assuming you watch a lot of political stuff, or maybe sports.

So it's YouTube's fault that your ISP sucks?

My ISP is top of the line. So it is YouTube. And you can tell even more by the fact that that when I visited New York last week, I did the soccer ball thing, same exact values. Also in-a-way stating I don't live in the US. I figured thus out in a wifi cafe'.

You clearly don't understand how the Internet works.

The soccer ball? Seems it's gone now, but the only one I ever saw was the one that made vuvuzelas sound out over the video.

Right click the soccer ball in the right side of the video toolbar. It should show speed test. Or right click the video toolbar itself.

Your processor has absolutely nothing to do with how quickly the Internet works unless your computer is 20 years old.

What service you pay for and what service you get are completely different things. Recent studies have shown that the average user gets far less service than they're actually paying for. There's also the matter of there being 50,000 different factors that could be effecting the connection.

But if you think YouTube is purposely slowing down the connection, you're an idiot. If that were the case, the entire Internet would be blown up with complaints. If anything is intentionally throttling the connection it's going to be your ISP but I wouldn't be at all surprised if your network wasn't just completely misconfigured.

Fun Fact: If Net Neutrality gets shut down, as it appears it's going to be, your ISP will legally be able to slow down or block altogether any site that doesn't pay them to prevent it from happening.

This made me lmao. I was almost literaly ROFLMAO. I never said they were doing it on purpose, in fact, It's in my belief you just have an insane urge to communicate with someone like they are a piece of shit on the road. And Good luck with your meteforical 'Internet Blowing up with COMPLAINTS" theory. If Youtube was doing it on purpose and somehow people knew. Even though only 32% of the people who ever go on the internet ever visit youtube.

I laughed even harder when I left my house and passed by a Cox communications center a quarter-a-mile down from my house.
