Default [General question] Microinterruptions of Youtube

Hi all.
In the last weeks I suffer a drawback about Youtube. When I watch a video
there are sometimes several microinterruptions of the sound (and sometimes
even of the images). Those microinterruptions are annoying and unbearable
for me.
I'd want to know if that happens even to other people.
I am trying to understand, as the first step, if that happens because of the
server of Youtube.

GF

An obvious question: do you get them when viewing clips of similar
length and resolution from other sites?

Download the videos, then play.

Depending on where you live, it is easy or more difficult but doable.

Youtube-dl can do that for you.

"you can also check out the Google Video Quality report"

https://www.google.com/get/videoqualityreport/

I don't understand what the results of that report are supposed
to be telling me. There doesn't appear to be any difference between
LD, SD, HD streams, according to the graphs. And the graphs show
consumption peaks at 7PM. Weird. My electrical performance metric
("when do modems lose sync") makes it look like 9PM is the
consumption peak for all traffic. I've never had the modem
drop sync at 2PM. And it does not drop sync today. I've described
before, how it turns out my Antec ATX PSU was spraying mains
with noise and degrading SNR on the modem to an unusable point.
But the modem would wait until 9PM, to actually drop sync due
to the addition of electrical-noise + noise-on-DSL-wire. Once
the Antec was replaced, no more loss of sync.

Using TCPView, look to see if any other sessions are blasting out
traffic. It could even be hidden from view, like your
VOIP could have priority over the other traffic on the
router. Sort the columns by Sent packets or Receive packets,
so the busy sites will be at the top of the chart. For Youtube,
sorting by receive makes sense.

For now thank you for the answers. Nothing is still solved. I'm still
investigating.

Just use youtube-dl to download the videos.
It shows the current download speed, so if there are any
server/net issues the speed will vary a lot.
