            Bug ID: 233861
           Summary: [GStreamer] Buffering seems to stall on youtube.com
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Media
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Since 2.35.1, we seem to be somehow really bad at buffering YouTube videos. WebKit has always been very unreliable at this -- it's been common for years to have to refresh the entire page when a video begins buffering -- but now it seems to have gotten much, much worse. I've been trying to watch a particular YouTube video that I've had to restart *dozens* of times now because it seems to just stop downloading additional data, and when this happens the only way to get it to continue is to refresh the entire page. Between this and bug #233859 we have a pretty big problem with YouTube.

I can try to upload a GStreamer debug log next week if requested. I wonder if network debug might be helpful too.
