YouTube downloading is slow

Post by ferret »

usually ok, but recently the audio parts of a file take an age to download. by and large the speed when downloading the video is the same as normal... any ideas?

this has happened with the last couple of updates, including the most recent one

generally the first 20% of the audio file downloads at the usual fast speed, then it totally slows down and the remaining 80% takes about 10 minutes or more

Provide example link.
If you use a VPN it could be related to it.

Ref the downloading issue YTDP 14.22.0414 [also observed once in previous version]
Noticed this begin to occur around a week ago. The video download goes as would be expected. Then at around 80 percent of the video download the speed slows, but finishes. just slowly. THEN
When the audio portion begins the speed again rises through around 20% of that. then slows to a crawl, especially if the stream is long (1 hour plus) and in higher detail, say 2160, even though that should not matter.
With me, and in longer/larger concert size audio downloads (100MB) with higher resolution (bigger) videos the slowness usually ends in failure.
the link I am currently working which has failed 6 times so far during the 25-40% portion of the audio download process.
2160p 4k - WebM DASH - 60fps request
1440p WebM DASH 5.44GB 1:55:57 selected quality
end audio size says 109.27 [audio finally completed successfully on 7th try--audio portion of download took 57 minutes to download the 109.27MB]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=973B7PI ... f&index=28

other notes
** ON average all downloads including the smaller <5MB audio parts the audio speed is much slower than video speed. It is just that the audio download seems to not fail on smaller sizes.
The link above is 28th in a playlist of other 2160 videos @1440p from a concert. I have been downloading the 1st 27 videos since writing my post. Most audio tracks are slow; however, a few (maybe 7-9 of those 27 downloaded did pick up speed and download at a fast rate) ALL 27 smaller videos (160-225MB full size video) with smaller audio download sizes did complete. My only failure is the full concert file, which in my latest attempt is up to 47.94 of 109.27 or 44%. Ugh!
Last night observation was made with a 30-minute video at 1080 resolution [two failures before success] & a 1:55.00 length video @1080 with 5 failures before two successes.
Shorter videos have worked; I will watch other behaviors the next few days and see if I can note other weirdnesses.

Running a 1080p HD WebM DASH 0.99GB download seven times today with similar observations
Slowed video after 75%, fast audio to 20s, then creepy slow to 48-49% (aprox 30-31MB of 62.04MB)
Audio was still downloading when each disconnect happened, and each disconnect happened at almost the same exact size/percent, like on command from a program parameter looking at size or percentage of download.
Server load effects did not seem to come into play.
I ran two downloads side by side 15 seconds apart and they tracked bite for byte together after 75% of the videos until each cut at 48%
Smaller 4-6 min videos @1080p-1440p today downloaded perfectly with slower than normal audio, but not creepy.
