YouTube uploads fail intermittently

I started using YouTube about two days ago for private video uploads and sharing. I discovered that uploads have been freezing in between ever since y'day. I don't know if this is a function of some inherent builtin limit on YouTube's end (for daily uploads from a single user) or this is some bandwidth constraint imposed by my service provider (Airtel) or something else totally unrelated.

I'm however still able to download relatively large files without issues (so download bandwidth may not necessarily have been breached yet, at my current levels of consumption).

Uploads to YouTube of files 50MB or lesser have been freezing anywhere between 20% to 70% completion.

Anyone else noticed this ? Any known issues / workarounds ?

At the moment, I've been unable to upload any video completely since last evening (Saturday, 10-Mar-2007). FWIW, I was able to upload 6 videos in all since I began the whole process.
