Why will videos not play on my home network?

For some reason my laptop will not play videos on my home network. The sole exception is when I view youtube videos on the youtube site itself. The video players will load, but then wait to buffer the video without ever loading anything. I have no issues on other networks than my home network, and I have no issues with other devices or laptops, other than my personal laptop, even on my home network. And what is so special about the youtube site that makes it immune to the problem? I have tried using other browsers, and the behaviour persists.

I am using Chrome on a Macbook Air running OS 10.9.4 but have tested in Safari as well with identical results.
I am usually pretty good at troubleshooting these sorts of things, but I can't figure out where the problem is coming from based on what I've managed to figure out so far. If it is the router, why is only my computer affected? And if it's my computer, why is it only affected on this network? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
