It's not just the archived videos though, live streams are unwatchable at times as well.
I was having issues with them playing on my PC while they all worked fine on my ipad. Now in the past week they've started working fine on my PC but they won't even play on the ipad. Not sure what the deal is or if they're still working on things behind the scenes.
Buffering remains a problem especially on large files, what ever streaming partner they use for the premium content blows. I never get above 100k down, even downloading the files is a crap option as I'd like to watch content but waiting a week for the HD version is unacceptable.
Also I have 30mpbs down confirmed by speed tests and the YouTube player never has this issue.
Don't usually have any issues but for the last couple days I've been having problems with videos pausing randomly and then acting like they've finished playing. If I refresh I usually lose my place in the video and sometimes it doesn't load again at all. Never have any problems with Twitch, though.
