What can I think of it being?
These are the numbers:

Screen 2012-11-08, 19h, Alsa problem 2
Uploading your video. 38 minutes remaining. Your video will be live
at: http://youtu.be/M7AZ6el8AK4

But it's a file that weighs:

$ ls -lhH Screen\ 2012-11-08\,\ 19h\,\ Alsa\ problem\ 2.mkv
- -rw-r--r-- 1 miro miro 156M 2012-11-08 18:45 Screen 2012-11-08, 19h,
Alsa problem 2.mkv

 "156M"  156 megabytes!
I pay a connection by which I can download a 4GB file, ISO file, such
as SuSE DVD or Gento Live DVD or Fedora ISO, you name it, in very
little more than 1h, that is 60 minuts, say 65 minutes...
Now divide it by 4, or even by 6, the speed to upload is 4 to 6 times
more slowly by design here as in any routers worldwide standard, to my
That would be 4G /4 = 1G file or even less in one hour, or in worse
case 4G / 6 = 660MB in one hour...

So why are you making me spend more than 1 h to upload a meagre 156M
file.  Sick of you! God made you pay, you stupid regime!

Sorry for the rant.

There will be no more "politics" nor human rights. Only this was
really necessary.

I'll be back to solving this issue GNU linux-wise only.

Thank you!
