    There is no fix. You may want to turn off qos on your router, but other than that, you have found one of the few bugs apple has been unable to fix.

    Many have reported slow speeds on wireless. Some have fixed it by turning off qos on their router. The rest of us have just had to deal with it.

    Thank you, it's not my wireless so what options can I use on my iPad alone?

    You should first of all check your Internet Connection Speed on a web service like speedtest.
    If the result is fine - if there are too many users on the same, shared "line" while you try to watch streamed video it's getting slow for everyone - then it might also be the server's problem, too many users watching the same video at the same time or it is such a rare video which noone else has been watching for the last years...
    I do have the problem regularly in the hotels I stay at in China - (no youtube, as it is banned) due to slow Internet connections - and I just pause the video until it has been buffered enough time...
