Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

Has this been resolved? 

I've been experiencing the same issues - running the 250 ignite here, and every 10-30 seconds my video is buffering on youtube.


I'd like to know if you've resolved this issue.


Thanks!

@mikem0278@RogersCoreyAs of today i have switched to the CGN3ACSMR So Far From what i have tested  the speed seems stable tested on 1hr long 1080p60 no buffer stream host seems to stay stable and not switch constant "on 1hr 1080p60 video the stream host did not change Smiley Very Happy" so if you have the cgn3-ROG "what i had affter i had to exchange my dead CNG3ACSMR yes its my second one" you may want to exchange it for the newer models as somthing weird happens with these models.

 

Keepin mind only youtube was having this issue The modem performed perfect for everything else twitch,netflix even youtube mobile worked better for some reason downloading worked fine and ping was good.

Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

Hello there, I am experiencing the same issue.  At certain times of the day Youtube buffering issue.  I have a 100mb connection with the CGN3ACSMR in bridge mode (turned off routing) and a NetGear R7000 router.  

 

Haven't had any issues with Youtube in the past however recently within the past 2 weeks I have been having videos constantly buffer around this time (after 6 PM EST).  Running a speedtest shows my connection speed and pings are perfect.  Downloading or streaming from other services have no issues except Youtube.  This leads me to believe there may be an issue with the Youtube relay/cache servers hosted by Rogers?

@mau108, interesting that you should ask that question.  Have a look at the bottom posts on this DSLReports page to see if they are of any assistance:

Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

I will add to this I as well have this issue. I haven't bothered with complaining as I have the Gigabit package and am plauged with the CODA modem, figured this was because of that. 

 

When I do a speed test over WiFi 5Ghz network with my Asus RT-AC88U router, I get between 400 - 500mbps for the speed. Yet watching YouTube videos will always start playing at a lower resolution or buffer.

 

This is being played on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge over 5Ghz AC WiFi netwok, router is running newest firmware and all wired up with Cat6a. Rogers CODA is running .24 firmware and IPv6 is enabled

I've been having this problem too for the past couple of weeks.

Sometimes its fine, sometimes its not. I find it's worse when doing anything over 1080p, which is ridiculous because gigabit should be more than sufficient for 1440p/4k youtube streaming.

Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

I am unable to watch 4k videos from YouTube when coming from a specific host. The host speed slowly drops then stays at low 5-12mbps. I am unable to consistently view 4k youtube videos from my smart tv. This is like an alternative format of throttling. Like we're being switched to a cdn that is slow to artificially cap the speed. I have had this problem for nearly 2 years without resolution. I am using ignite 250/20. This is very disappointing.

The host servers that include sn-gvbxgn are the issue. Confirmed on my end

Try using a different DNS provider and see if things change. You can try Open DNS or Google DNS
