I'm experiencing frustrating lags when trying to watch just about any YouTube video. Some of them load okay, but more often than not only first ~15 seconds load instantly and the rest is either loading very slow or doesn't load at all.

I also see the message "video not available" sometimes.

what could be the problem? I've got 100mb fibre connection, I can watch full hd videos on vimeo.com without any delay.

Are you using html5 video? Perhaps you could try enabling/unenabling it to see if that helps: youtube.com/html5 –  mtdevans May 16 '13 at 14:35
