I think this could be because of the servers/infrastructure youtube
has in place.
I know for sure we can have IP's statically assigned with ISP core
I know for sure that we can have DHCP for the Client end. Now what happens is
the ISP can use the statically allocated IP for Youtube videos. This helps in
two things QoS and Limiting Network Data in the Infrastructure. On top of this
Youtube can be using an Hong Kong based Server for a person in Asia. Now the
IP is cached in an google.hk server and it naturally buffers its
videos for this particular
ISP and What the end user sees is an very fast video load time.
