Since its flat rate with the few dollar addon, I am using youtube a lot more than in the past.
But, its performing noway near as well as I would expect. On slingshot if the cache did its thing there was never a question of if it would play right thru or not, the cache made it always work - both 720 and 1080.
But here, now, I am having to pause things and let them buffer - not as bad as the bad times on slingshot when the cache didnt work, but certainly not click and play. Looking at the transfer its all coming from o-o.preferred.snap-chc1.v13.lscache1.c.youtube.com (this time) which when I ping is 26ms away, so clearly on network, but just am not seeing the grey bar leap ahead of playback. More often then not playback will catchup and I am stuck watching buffering :( Since it is all coming from on network and I am not being charged for it, then clearly me using my own proper DNS server isnt causing it to go to a distant mirror.
How does it perform for everyone else? Can you just choose 1080 on any old vid when fullscreening it and have it work how you would expect?
