    I dug out my old E-Mac for a project I have coming up. Just for kicks I hit YouTube. It is very choppy and letting videos load doesn't help. When I used to run this computer all the time YouTube worked fine.

    Has the download speed of Youtube (and internet in general) sped up?

    You Tube uses Flash Player. Some You Tube videos are now in high definition. Those would take more bandwidth and resources. There may some setting choices on You tube to view the HD videos at a lower resolution but I'm not sure if there is.

    Thanks. Figured it was something like that.
