anybody else notice a distinct drop in performance on youtube recently? I see (in chrome), that they're touting HTML5 players for browsers that support it... and now the whole movie clip needs to load before anything will play.
Hmmm not sure I get what you're asking. The HTML5 YouTube has been around for several months BTW
if you're interested in how to fix this. Click HTML5 on the player, then on the page it opens, click 'leave HTML preview' or something to that effect. everything goes back to normal.
I've noticed that every little change they make to the Flash player fucks it up more and more, now if you pause/unpause it you usually have to drag the playhead to kick it back to life. So fucking often it'll claim to have cached the whole video yet it keeps stuttering.
Worked so much better before Google sunk their claws in
