Okay to start I may as well state what machine and software and what ISP I have so...
ISP is Century Link averaging 5-7mb/s down and 0.7mb/s up
Software is: Safari with no add-ons, and youtube.com
I run a MacBook Pro retina 15" base spec model.
The strange part about this is, all the websites I use load just as they have before, yet youtube has had issues lately buffering anything above 240p. 2 Weeks ago it was loading just fine even with 720p videos. I've reset the Modem and Routers in my house several times and even restarted my computer but with no luck. Would anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve the issue? Speedtest.net was what I used not long ago and those 2 weeks ago and the results were the same. Any help is appreciated thanks!

I've got a 120Mbit connection and 10Mb download and my Youtube also laggs quite a bit. I think that ever since Hurricane Sandy some of Youtube's servers got taken down and they still haven't recovered from it.
