Block the caching servers, problem solved.

Since blocking VM's terrible YouTube caching servers I've not had a video buffer in over a year. I appreciate that they're trying to save on bandwidth costs but if they can't handle doing it seamlessly then they shouldn't do it at all.

Guide here, basically involves adding a firewall rule to block 3 subnets used by the VM caching servers: http://digiex.net/guides-reviews/guides-tutorials/networking-guides/12771-how-fix-youtube-virginmedia-blocking-cache-proxy.html
