Thats completely untrue. I always wait for the full videos to buffer before watching just about anything. Usually it takes about 20-40 seconds for a 30 minute video to fully buffer. That video took 6 hours. I ended up just leaving it sit and did some runnign around and when i came back it was just finishing. It did eventually buffer all the way, it just took way too long.
Also when i watch the videos they arent buffering any faster. They usually do, but they arent anymore.
