The best player of all is PornHub's, not even gonna lie. Great keyboard support, fluid design, responsive if the video isn't over 30 minutes, which is rare, at least for me, and even then I skip to the best part with the mouse, no sense in holding down an arrow key for ages.
To anyone having all these problems - have you tried changing to opendns? If not, it's worth a try. I used to have buffering problems with Youtube and even Amazon streams freezing up years ago. Come to find out it was due to AT&T's crappy DNS servers, I'm sure other providers are just as bad.

am i the only one here whose been constantly having trouble with youtube switching to 240 p or 144p?
I don't even see many videos offered at 240p anymore. That's how I know I've stumbled into the old side of youtube. 360p is the lowest resolution that I regularly see. That's fine if I'm not going to go fullscreen...it sucks if there's a bigger than default size player though.
