Why YouTube buffers: The secret deals that make—and break—online video

I thought I was the only one but man, Youtube's buffer is insanely annoying as heck. It forces me to constantly be deleting my cache just because the stupid vid gets stuck at some point and the only thing that fixes it is by deleting the cache.

this is pretty eye opening, I always wonder why my high speed internet connection lags on videos more than my dsl connection back in 2005.
