Anyone have any ideas? The website is Thanks for any advice!

ytimg is where YouTube stores its videos, so the connection problem is a YouTube bug.

Hi morfytastic - thanks for your input!

I was hoping that you could clarify - does this mean that the problem is on my computer? I know that others are having the same problem with the page loading.
As far as I'm aware a lot of people are having problems with this, particularly in IE & FF. It seems ok in Chrome and Opera. It's a Youtube problem that they seem to be slow to sort out...
