Youtube continuously buffering

Anyone else having trouble with youtube?
most of the stuff on there just continuously stop/starts/bufferes.
I did a speed test via the speedtest.bt.net and i got this:
Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test:  -provides background information.
    Your DSL connection rate: 7584 kbps(DOWN-STREAM),  448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
    IP profile for your line is - 6500 kbps
    Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 42 kbps
is it a speed issue at plusnet or somehting else?

Re: Youtube continuously buffering

i had issues last night with you tube but put it down to my new belkin's wireless as a disconnect, reconnect of the wireless sorted it but i only streamed one video after getting it buffer straight so may still of been a network or youtube server problem maybe

Re: Youtube continuously buffering

I've just played this video in high quality and it was buffering well ahead of itself (I'm on Unlimited). As for the BT Speedtester, that looks a bit broken from where I'm sat.
