Anyone else have buffering issues with streams or Youtube @ 1080p? I have 100Mb Virgin and really shouldn't have issues particularly with Youtube, but virtually every video that loads up at 1080p will buffer or stop altogether at some point.

Have you guys had similar issues and if so, have you managed to overcome it?

Virgin are notorious for providing shite access to youtube. They download popular YT videos and host them on a cache server which theoretically means it gets served to you the customer faster and better but in reality it doesn't actually work

google virgin broadband youtube, there'll be loads of advice

Though yeah, I also found my internet running pretty shite tonight and I'm on the same package as you. Get it every so often.

Yeah was browsing a few forums about it earlier on, some people have no issue at all with it, and others have the same problems we are having. No real definitive answers about what to do either apart from the usual like clearing the cache and make sure you don't have other programs running simultaneously.
