    Hi,
    today I've noticed while playing CS GO, that my ping would raise up to a thousand or even more. I've checked every little thing and it did not seem that the computer is causing the problem neither the Cs Go server.

    Strangely, after the 2nd computer went off, the internet was normal again. So I checked it to be sure.

    When the 2nd computer for example has a launched video on youtube, my ping would go crazy, when it was off, my ping was back to normal. Does anyone know, what might cause this strange problem? Thanks for help in advance.

    Hi Goodfeller, and welcome to TSG.

    Streaming video is data intensive and could be using up most of your available Internet connection bandwidth, resulting in longer ping times for you and buffering issues for the person with the video feed.

    I doubt that, sir.
    I could watch youtube or twitch without having massive pings. Maybe the internet provider has some problems ?

    Perhaps if you gave us more details about you local network hardware and about your Internet service, someone else here may be able to better assist you.
