I'm also from Melbourne and seeing the same problem. I'd been blaming my ISP but apparently that's not the case. It's extremely frustrating.

 

Update: Downloading older videos still seems to work without a problem.

Also in Victoria, and have been experiencing this since the ECN was introduced. Keen to have this resolved, let me know if theres any specific information that would be helpful, or diagnostics I can perform.
