My son mentioned this to me. Interesting article The Secret Deals That Make YouTube Buffer http://ow.ly/npHLQ #youtube #internet.
My son creates playlists in YouTube and listens to them while “working” on his computer. He had complained that every once in awhile they would stop playing and were “buffering.” He wanted us to purchase a faster internet connection (we have the fastest available), after researching the problem, the problem was not here but with the ISP throttling YouTube videos.
There are some work arounds posted in online forums, when the work arounds have been tested I will post them on this blog.
