Hey guys,


After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I've noticed that Youtube now takes half of my life to load anything. It simply won't buffer. It beachballs until the end of time. If you're lucky, you might only get 3 interruptions of buffering on a 5 minute long video. This never used to happen. I have a 20 megabit business line internet connection and all other web pages and videos load as fast as can be. This only started happening after upgrading to ML. It happens on every internet browser I have  - chrome, firefox, and safari. I've tried chaning my DNS addresses to the OpenDNS numbers, but this has had no effect.


Any useful ideas would be much appreciated!
