youtube speed tester

You must have heard of speedtest.net. Its a online speed test to measure how fast your ISP is. As a synthetic benchmark, it has the advantages of being easy to do and its standardized so you can compare apples to apples with other users. The disadvantage is that it sometimes can be inaccurate.

This webpage is a synthetic benchmark that uses streaming video. Its may be useful to see if your ISP throttles or has problems with youtube. Unfortunately, from experience, I find that different streaming video sites as well as different videos from youtube can stream at different rates.
in reference to: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. (view on Google Sidewiki)
