Looks fine here on cable. Many times it's the hardware that's choking rather than the connection speed. Hated the old YouTube but love the new. Nice job, BTW.
Looks lovely this end, stopped to cache a couple of times but that's typical of YT down here in Aus.
You may want to have a look at some prelim testing I've been doing on YT HD. So far I've only done H.264 on CBR, but I have a range of versions of the same clip to compare, with bitrates from .5 all the way to up to about 10. HD doesn't kick in until somewhere between .5 and 1.
A bitrate of about 2 seems to be just fine, and I'm even getting pretty good tones in areas of block colour (e.g. the sky).
You can see all the versions here: http://au.youtube.com/UQSJC
The source is HDV from a Canon HV30 at 50i exported from Premier CS3 using the AME.
Excellent on DSL here in San Diego. Pixelated if not viewed in HD.
Excellent in HD, not so in normal rez. Loaded fine. We have DSL
Bill, I'm having the same trouble with my uploads: the HD looks lovely, but the scale-down is awful.
YouTube HD seems to be a "work in progress" at the moment so hopefully that will be rectified at their end soon.
On my 768 DSL it buffered at 16 seconds, 18 seconds, 21 seconds, 23 seconds, 25 seconds, then I gave up.
Near Toronto Ontario It played fine on DSL. Never stopped once to buffer. Nice quality. I wasn't aware you tube accepted hd uploads.
Stopped to buffer repeatedly. Corporate T1, San Jose CA.
