Youtube not using full bandwidth

by Aletag   Last Updated July 23, 2018 00:03 AM

when I try to stream on YouTube I can't stream in 1080p or higher without the video buffering. Opening "stats for nerds" tells me that YT is using between 1 and 3 Mbps of my bandwidth which is odd since I can easily get 40Mbps in a speed test. Just wanted to say that other websites like Netflix are using my full bandwidth so I don't believe it's a problem with my ISP. Any Ideas?
