It used to be good, then a year or so ago it just started turning into ****. Sometimes I can't even load 240p videos without the player deciding to stop. When it starts loading again it automatically lowers the quality to 144p. Unless I'm just doing something wrong, Youtube flat out sucks.
I think you're doing something wrong. Never had any issues with YouTube (Other than redesigns, * system to like system, and the implementation of Google+... Which are all horrible, but as far as the innerworkings of the the player/website, I've never had an issue).
Not to say there aren't better video sharing/streaming sites (Vimeo comes to mind immediately), but due to YouTube's prominence, they really don't account for much if anything as far as competition.

LOL. No one can compete with YT. There way too big.
So was IBM, Kodak, or General Motors. People at Google will eventually buy into their own bull **** so much that they think they can do anything and people will just go along. Eventually someone better and smarter will come up with something else and threaten them.
IBM managed to stay around and keep succeeding because they changed what they did.
