    So i was mass-uploading YT vids last night (about 500 of them) and then when i woke up in the morning i saw this:
    ipbannedYoutube.PNG

    I can navigate through the site but as you can see, there are no images or videos showing.
    I have a dynamic ip, but i get the same thing with every ip i try. Using HMA's web proxy or private proxy i can acces youtube normally. I can even enter youtube from my smatphone connected to the wi-fi, even though it uses the same ip's.

    Yeah, it's the same with any browser.

    Edit: I used 10 seconds delays when uploading, maybe there too many requests and they considered it an attack. But still...
    Also i can still login with an account and acces the upload page and etc..

    I'm pretty certain this is NOT the result of a disciplinary action because of you uploading videos on YouTube. It is more likely the result of a local bandwidth cap imposed by your ISP to minimize the load on the internet because YouTube consumes so much of it.

    So do you think it was a cap imposed by my ISP because of my last night's shenanigans that raised some red flags or have i reached a monthly bandwidth cap that i had no knowledge of (i'll have a look at the contract).

    No your internet connection is fine, but accessing YouTube is the problem. Your ISP is deliberately throttling YouTube and they probably have good reason to do so: YouTube consumes a phenomenal amount of bandwidth, and it's increasing all the time. It's very difficult for ISPs to keep up, and they may be forced to ration bandwidth in this way, so that at least you're getting something.
