Certain YouTube Videos Not Loading

At approximately 8pm Pacific Standard Time, I started experiencing YouTube Video loading issues on certain videos. Specifically, the HTML page loads fine, most of the time with thumbnail images, and even the SWF and/or HTML5 players load, but the actual video file never streams.


Yes, I have tried multiple web browsers, resetting cache and extensions, as well as another computer in the house. (and of course, the obligatory Router/Modem reboot.) In fact, other people and friends in my area are experiencing the same issues I describe. We are on Shaw Cablesystems (shaw.ca) here in Lantzville, BC, Canada; specifically V0R2H0 postal code.


I'm not here to complain or accuse any wrongdoing on either Google or Shaw's part; I'm simply inquiring as to other people having the same issue in case there's a backbone network or routing problem with YouTube's Content Distribution Network streaming certain videos.


This video works fine for me:



Strangely enough, another on his channel does not:



These videos below are the ones which don't load:
