I've been having issues since about wednsday or thursday last week. My flash player is simply not behaving as it used to, (it's been fine on this PC and Internet Connection since October, it's not my rig nor my connections fault) when I watch youtube videos they stop loading after a little while and I have to click stop download and then start it again, or hit f5, it wont continue loading, and it's not just a wait for it to buffer.
Then this friday, as I was going to watch MLG that I paid for, I noticed that streams were freezing aswell, same issue, they go cool and usual for a few seconds to a few minutes, and then they just stop loading the stream or video, making me restart the download through pause - play, f5, stop download then restart etc.
I've been fiddling with Flash player settings such as storage maximum (now set to unlimited), I've cleared my cache and cookies aswell. I spent in total 7 hours with MLG Tech support trying to figure out what was wrong to no avail. I've even used direct DNS Server connecting, so I am left with the thought that it's a Flash Player issue. On some youtube videos dont have this problem. (Only the ones not using Flash player!!!)

Yes I tested it on both Chrome, IE and Firefox (my main)
In the other topic with buffering issue you can see what exactly happens, my internet doesnt stop, if I'm playing a game I dont just all of a sudden lose Internet, but when watching a video all of a sudden it doesnt want to buffer any further.
EDIT: I'm sorry, apparently it doesnt bug out on Chrome or IE, just Firefox. That's odd, a few days ago it was everything.

Now with Chrome! :
(It did stop buffering after 8minutes for whatever reason but it was more lag (my connection) as it showed spinning circles then started again, on firefox there are no spinning circles, it just stops and never goes further.)
But it did buffer it all?
I also have this issue with
Twitch.tv streams. It's not JUST youtube, and it works in Chrome I just learned..
