As of yesterday (1/31/11), HD playback in 720P and 480P gives me a stuttering effect as if the buffering can not keep up with the video. SD playback is working without any stuttering. I have tested this issue across multiple browsers and multiple computers but I get the same results. Also I tested my internet speed and speedtest.com tells me I'm getting my 6Mbit download rate. Up to yesterday I had no issues playing 720P content.

Any ideas on what might have changed or what I can do to get my HD content to play smoothly again?

Yeah I've been having extreme difficulties with it too. I guess they are having server issues (again!).

Now that I think about it, this issue started about the same time that Egypt started its internet blackout. I wonder if Egypt blackout is indirectly affecting my HD video playback.

That or my conspiracy theories are running amok again.

Nevermind I spoke too soon, sure enough the video is freezing every other minute again. I too have been having the problem for about a week.
