FIOS and YouTube, Youtube doesn't play videos

For weeks I could not get Youtube to work on my iPad.   I thought it was the iPad.  I changed the DNS servers, I rebooted, reset, you name it,   I then took it to my beach condo with Verizon DSL and I could play the Youtube videos fine.

Came home, and had the same problem with my PC.  I thought it was the router.  Checked that and I could not find an issue.  I don't have a Verizon router, I use a Cisco router hooked up to the the ethernet connect in the ONT.  So I unplugged the router and plugged my PC into the ONT using the ethernet connection.   No Youtube.  Same issue.

I fixed it by releasing the Verizon IP address on the router, unplugging the router from the ONT, waiting about an hour and then replugging and getting a new IP address.

Verizon must be blocking selective IP addresses.

Re: FIOS and YouTube, Youtube doesn't play videos

We have a Verizon router and none of our WiFi devices (iPhone, iPad or computers) will play any YouTube videos. Why??
