Slowly Loading Water Scenes

It looks as though YouTube videos are a problem for some users here in Kazakhstan right now. I found that in the last week or so, content was slow to load, and occasionally timed out. Having just tested the same url in Opera, using their Turbo technology (their servers load the content, then feed it to you), I think the issue, be it technical (packet losses? haven’t done any real testing yet), political (usually explained as a technical issue by local authorities) or random is definitely local. Having remoted into a UK PC and watched the same video without using Opera’s Turbo mode, it loaded fine.
Anyway, the video I’m talking about is embedded below. No last minute twists in it, but definitely something to make you think…
