Is it just me, or has YouTube gone downhill of late? - abates
Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Seems like a lot of the time recently I've gone to YouTube to watch a video, and nothing's happened. I just get a black rectangle where the video should be. Most annoying.

Also had problems today with my PS3 crashing while playing War for Cybertron, but I think it may have been due to the 3.30 firmware patch. I've seen reports that it causes the system to occasionally lock up. Have updated the PS3 to 3.40, so hopefully that should fix the problem.

I just had the same thing happen to me five minutes ago, so it's probably not just you. Hope they can sort it out soon.

Ahh, that's a relief of sorts. It's sometimes hard to tell if it's just dodgy internet or the site actually does have a problem. Thanks. :)

That's happened to me a few random times on YouTube. But it's not happening today, for me. Of course, being in a different part of the world, maybe a different part of the network is acting up.

It's always cleared itself up for me randomly, too... *shrug*

I've heard some countries are blocked from aspects of youtube, however since it is a holiday weekend here I suspect the culprit is overloaded servers.

Yeah, I suspect overloading too. I thought Google were the masters at load balancing! :)
