Some videos on YouTube, just won't start loading. While others will load perfectly.

Flash is updated, and javascript is on. Its the same thing for 5 computers, wired or wireless.

One thing I have noticed is that if its connecting to *.youtube.com it loads fine, it its an IP address or *.googlevideo.com.

My ISP has confirmed that don't block/restrict it, and said they should load fine. I have tried a new router, and same thing. It doesn't matter what I do they just won't load....

OS: XP Home
HD: 70GB

INTERNET SPEED: 2MB/S (constant 1MB+) / 512kb/s (constant 300KB+)

One of the 3 computers I've tried is Ubuntu Linux, and it has the same problem.

Help please???

PS: I looked on youtube for a support email address and couldn't find any......

The problem is probably with Youtube itself. They have had issues with video quality and not being robust enough since the day they opened. The site has improved a lot and they have announced plans to improve the video quality in the spring. Your problem happens to everyone. I went to Youtube to watch a video on Wed. It was very slow loading and the video was freezing. So I went back yesterday to watch the same video and it was fine. Try another viral video site like Daily Motion or My Space TV and see what kind of results you get.
