    For about the last week or so, Youtube has been super slow! I am not sure as to why this is. Sometimes it takes a couple minutes to even start a video, or I have to refresh (sometimes during as well). This doesn't happen all the time, but quite regularly. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas as to what is going on?

    I don't even notice Youtube problems anymore (so used to them).

    But I must say that Photobucket is annoying the heck out of me...

    If you know that you do have the newest version of flash player please follow this guide.

    Remove "Flash Player Update" pop-up virus (Removal Guide)

    Edit: I recommend that you use Revo uninstaller instead of Microsofts standerd uninstaller. Use in advanced mode and delete the registry keys and other portions of the program.
    Download link for Revo here.http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/3028-2096_4-10687648.html?dlc=n&c=sem2&s=fivemill&part=fivemill&pid=dlcom_sem&aid=10687648_7241165412_7717214613&gclid=CNnR_qDP3L4CFe99Ogod7EAAMQ

    I have been experiencing this as well. It's very annoying. As for why, it's partially the ISP. There was an article on PCMag or CNet that said the major ISPs are throttling a lot of streaming video, not just YouTube. Netflix only works well for Comcast customers because Comcast and Netflix struck up a deal for bandwidth.

    I get that on both PC and mobile. Mainly mobile.

    You too, huh? I can't even get into my library (which I have bookmarked), can't login, can't get my password recovery to work. Glad it's not just me.

    I end up having to switch formats to make it work. If on PC, go mobile. If on mobile, go PC. And whichever one does work, I have to click off the HD option and go with the shittiest possible connection to even get the video to half load.

    Especially on mobile. If I see "Touch to reload" one more time, I'm going to throw the phone, scream and run around the room babbling alien noises. I love watching Youtube, but it's a real pain in the ass lately.

    LOL. I stopped being able to read comments like 3 or 4 weeks ago. Oh well. Life goes on. ;) 

    As far as Photobucket, I have all kinds of trouble trying to copy links to my images (so I can paste them elsewhere.)
