Cross posting this from the 2Degrees topic as it seems to be a fibre related issue NZ wide - My mate in Auckland (I'm in the Waikato) is also on Bigpipe and getting 'Video Playback Interrupted - Please Try Again' message after about 10 seconds of video on any youtube live stream.
I was only made aware of this from a bro in Auckland who was trying to watch a Youtube stream I told him about, he said it's not working so I tested mine (was working fine last thursday when I last watched a YT stream), and now mine (and several other people posting today in the other thread) are all unable to watch the streams on YT.
I've tried ONT reset, router swap and adblocker disable, it seems to definitely be on either Chorus' fibre end (as far as I can tell, it's only people on fibre with this issue?) or a Youtube hating NZ thing, I'm guessing the former, lol if it's the latter though XD.
Any ideas fellow geeks?
