Youtube Performance Issues
We have been getting complaints of youtube intermittent performance issues. We’ve eliminated local problems. Someone discovered that a lot of the streaming was coming from a server in Taiwan. It looks like youtube determines the preferred server as I can see in Wireshark the server being queried by the client via DNS. We have registered a complaint and I’m sure Google will be all over it shortly. J
Has anyone else dealt with this. My impression is that youtube just isn’t always reliable for lots of reasons at home or here.
Faculty use it during class and seem to be surprised when it doesn’t perform well. It is a shame though, because there is a lot of great content.
