So, hi. This is my first time posting so please excuse any and all faux pas.
For the past 2 or so weeks, I've been struggling with youtube, 8tracks and various *other* video streaming sites. I have no cooking clue why. When I say struggle, the video will play for 30-60s then have to buffer. If I pause the video to buffer, it will but as soon as I press play again, the buffering amount disappears and I get the silly loading circle. And this happens until I get cross and exit.
I have updated my drivers, searched for malware using various tools, I have asked my housemates to sit in my room and connect to the wifi to see if distance from the router is the issue, I have hacked the house's router to give my laptop priority, I have sat next to the router, I have cleared my history and cookies and the likes, I have tried different sites, I have tried different web browsers and the updated versions at that, my laptop is about a year old, I treat it well, I have antivirus and adblock and scan and clean and delete regularly. I just do not know what is going on?!?!?! And I'm highly frustrated.
Is there something I'm missing?
I wouldn't say I'm a computer pro or anything but if I have instructions, I can and will follow them.
Please can anyone advice me on how to proceed before I do something irrational....
