    Do you have QOS enabled?

    I found that youtube and hulu opens a large number of connections and those connections are "unclassified" If you limit the unclassified, it will mess with the video.

    This may or may not help but just an FYI

    There is nowhere in QoS to allow you to limit unclassified, as far as I can see.

    youtube is the problem. I have the same exact issue once in a while. They get tons of traffic 24/7

    Which Tomato release is this? Bug is definitely corrected (long ago) in TB's builds.

    I'm using version 1.28. I have never tried TB builds of it. I don't understand what your saying, the "Default" class (i have it set as class E) is a bug?

    As far as i'm aware anything that doesn't meet your QOS rules or cannot be classified, such as SSL connections will be put in with class E in my case, I think the default is "Low".

    I also have some problem with youtube (and every websites using flash video), but I think my ISP is throttling my connection, because the problem occurs after 6PM...
    I'm using 1.27 VPN GUI.

    hey, yes im using QoS this is my settings:

    Now i have so big problems with youtube that there is NOT a chance that i can stream 720p clips... its so really bad because that the tomato firmware is so great on my network! no more thinking of the VoIP will lag or anything:/ only i want to fix now is youtube!

    I guess I would start by disabling QOS and see if YouTube works ok then. If it still does not work correctly then it is not a QOS problem. IF it now works correctly then start adding QOS settings one at a time and see what setting breaks YouTube.
