Hi there

Both at my half brother's house and here sometimes when we load a youtube video we get 'An error occurred, please try again later.' Any ad preceding the video loads and plays, and a refresh of the page loads the video. This is happening on both my desktop (ethernet to router) and laptop (wireless), and desktop (ethernet) at my half brother's house. Both houses are on cable in Lower Hutt.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is it specific to Vodafone, or a wide range of ISP's? Problem with Youtube perhaps?

The tracert performed on my laptop just now to gives the following:

I get this intermittently as well (I'm on VDSL with Xtra).

Me too from time to time.  On Voda VDSL.  I find the issue more prominent with Apple devices, not so much on PC.

I've noticed it has flared up mainly this week (maybe some of last week also - can't really recall), otherwise videos loaded fine before.
