Some "technical difficulties" with the first recording lead to having to re-record this week's show.

Hey Crash, here's some thoughts about your rant. I'm not a networking guru (started CCNA training at my previous job), but here are some other thoughts.

What's your uplink speed? Typically with ISPes the uplink speed is way less than the downlink speed. Run this diagnostic tool, http://www.speedtest.net/?s=896.

The other thing to think about is the time of day you're uploading. If it's a night, then it's safe to assume YouTube's servers are being hit harder due to more users being on from about 5pm EDT to about 3am EDT.

I also wonder if the servers handling the YouTube traffic have been upgraded to support IPv6. I've seen where Google runs IPv6 on their campus, it's a given with IPv6 that internet traffic dramatically increases since devices don't run through routers (or nearly as much).
