Picture of The Day- What’s Up With This YouTube

I pay extra for my “High Performance Internet” from Comcast which boasts a 25 MBPS download speed. I was able to get that speed only up to about two weeks after the upgrade. Now I am only averaging about 15 MBPS. That’s one problem I will have to address Comcast about, but the picture below depicts another problem that I am totally confused about.  The problem is I can be trying to watch a YouTube video and it freezes. Now I watch most videos full screen in 1080i if possible,  but the problem persists at even lower quality settings. Now a lot of people suffer from this problem that have slower connection speeds, but should I really be having the problem with the current speed of my ISP verified from SpeedTest.net? I don’t think so, but as you can see from the picture below is that according to the gray part of the bar on the bottom of the video, it can be buffered and still not playing on my Quad-core. What’s up with this? Is it a YouTube problem or what. It seems that Google’s servers on YouTube have been getting slower instead of faster over the year. That’s another story, but what about the “buffering”. Are they trying to pull the wool over our eyes or is this a flash problem or what? Any ideas?
