    Just about every video I try to watch gives me the 'sorry this video is no longer available message.'

    WTF?

    Are the videos you're looking for the sort that might be violating a copyright law?

    Actually, the YouTube videos that I've seen recently that have the message are ones that don't. Don't know what's behind it, if anything.

    Some weird things have been happening. There's a thread over at SA about how virtually anyone on Comcast is having some sort of issue with YouTube at the moment, whether it being from missing videos or super-slow downloads.

    Other ISPs are getting it too, apparently, but none with the volume of Comcast.

    What are you on?

    Yeah, YouTube has been shit on Comcast lately. It seems I can't watch any video longer than a few seconds without it hanging often. I watched a 4 minute clip of a movie the other day and it took about 15 minutes to get through it all.
