Clicking on “Find Out Why ?” would take you to Google’s Video Quality Report, which would suggest you to make some changes or give you a hint on why your video is not loading smoothly. As, the Net Neutrality battle continues in Senate, the internet providers are pulling out the speed on High Definition video hosting site, and demanding a extra charge on providing that speed to the website owners. So, if your video isn’t loading, maybe your ISP can also be a major reason behind it.

As maybe the major ISP’s such as Verizon and Comcast are already getting a ridiculous amounts of anger from the public as the manipulate the speed of websites in order to generate more revenue. They have already succeeded in extorting more money from Netflix to increase the speed for the websites.
