Default YouTube slow?

Is it just me or has YouTube been unbelievably slow the past couple of days?

I keep seeing buffering times easily 2-3x the length of the video itself for just about everything, I don't think it's anything my end because everything else on the net my end is working great and flying along, so I dunno.

TY in advance.

It looks like it's getting better, they're performing maintenance right now and it's a lot faster already.

They disabled all ratings and comments for the time being though

...and their messaging system.

Hopefully they fix some of the bugs that have been lingering around.

Site maintenance. I know mine is running slow because I have a torrent going, but the maintenance probably explains most of your slowdown.
