I was running into problems on youtube and found that the video would just stop downloading and not resume halfway through.

 

I installed a greasemonkey userscript that replaces the video player with an html5 one and the videos download fine.

I guess I am the opposite.. Having been on TWC internet for almost 10 years now.. Youtube is having less and less buffering issues than before.. Right now night time is when I can pretty much stay on "HD" on every video (on wifi that is). During the day and evening its pretty much hit or miss whether I can stay on HD the whole time or not.. This is having been on OpenDNS for the majority of that time.

Using different DNS will route you to different servers. 

 

I use OpenDNS and it still does it, from my research its all done through proxies way down the line somewhere that you have no control over except for it was proven before blocking the domain ntli.net fixed the issue

You might try downloading the videos. Sometimes when I can't watch them because everything is being slow and crappy, I download them instead.
