I've seen this problem floating around the internet in other forums a decent amount, but they all seem to be pretty old threads, and all of the fixes haven't helped me. I'm hoping somebody out there has an idea of why I'm getting this problem?

Mainly I am having a problem with youtube. And any video that is embedded with the youtube player. (Vimeo works just fine.) More or less, whenever I go to youtube, no matter what video I try to watch it'll buffer about 10 to 30 seconds of the video then stop buffering. The video will play fine to the buffer point, but it'll never continue to load. I can refresh the page but it'll always buffer to the same spot, and stop loading.

Here are some solutions I've tried:
I've tried in both Firefox and Google Chrome. Same issue in both.
I've tried uninstalling flash and reinstalling it.

I have flash version "WIN 11,1,102,55" according to http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html on Google Chrome. (Chrome updates it's flash player automatically)
I have flash version "WIN 10,3,183,11" according to http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html on Firefox. (This is the version I just installed from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/)

This problem seems to happen with a lot of people, but there don't seem to be solutions. Here is an old forum that describes my problem perfectly... http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=36d75904c9f96906&hl=en

I am running Windows 7.

Any thoughts? Any help is very much appreciated!
