    Mediacom & Youtube

    Has anyone else with mediacom been having issues with youtube.com the last few days? I can't seem to watch anything for more then 3 seconds without it buffering; any other site works great (cyclones.tv, etc).

    If I try to watch a clip from my phone I get the same thing, however if I switch wifi off so it's using t-mobile's network everything loads up just fine.

    I'm not sure if it's mediacom's fault or if my router has just started randomly hating on the youtube

    Re: Mediacom & Youtube

    I'm getting the same issue. I don't know if it is Youtube or Mediacom, but it is super annoying.

    I've even tried switching it to 240p and that doesn't help. But video from other sites loads fine in HD.

    Re: Mediacom & Youtube

    doing some searching i found this post:
    Have Time Warner Internet but can barely stream YouTube? I did an experiment. : technology

    I'm guessing mediacom's using the same thing

    I did what they recommended and added this to my router firewall settings:
    iptables -I FORWARD -s 192.168.1.0/24 -d 206.111.0.0/16 -j REJECT

    and it's working fine now.. should have done that a week ago
