Maybe u need a better Internet connection....I've never had a problem with YouTube. Loads fast and plays beautifully since day one.
My YouTube was crap until I upgraded my connection. Now it's very smooth.
Btw anyone still still using MiTube? (believe it's the same as MxTube but apple pulled it due to unauthorised api's). Since last week it won't connect to you tube and I wonder if it's being blocked.
Today YouTube HD videos run without a hitch. Not sure why that is, because the last time I checked was last week and at that time videos, such as 'Assassins Creed Brotherhood Trailer' would pause multiple times.
My Internet certainly isn't the fastest with 5Mb/s down and 0.3Mb/s up. BT offers a trade-up to fibre-optics broadband for free, perhaps I will try that one day and see if it makes any difference.
Thanks for the suggestions. Loving MxTube and I'll give YourTubeHD a look later.
Regarding my iPad 1 YouTube problems. I've googled the issue and see quite a few others are running into this and there have been a variety of fixes recommended, but none have worked for me.
* Using static DNS, such as Google's DNS servers.
* Using static IP address.
* Turning off autobrightness.
* Replacing wireless router (bought new WNDR-3700 802.11N).
* Turned of wireless encryption (turned it back on once confirmed it didn't help).
In addition I can watch YouTube on the mobile website just fine in HQ without any buffering. Likewise YouTube works fine on the PC and NookColor tablet on the same wifi network. Speed test (16Mb/5Mb) shows I'm fine.
I tried it all, nothing could resolve it.
Hopefully the iPad 2 isn't like the iPad 1, where some (maybe even most) are fine with the YouTube app, but for unexplainable reasons others will still have trouble with it. *shrug*
