    Bad YouTube video quality!!!

    I searched the topic to no avail...so go easy on me if I missed the already discussed topic.

    While watching YouTube videos through the app on the iPad I noticed that the quality is not even close to "HD". What gives? I thought that the quality would be better than I'm getting.

    Ant help would be appreciated.

    Are you watching yotube via 3G or wifi? When I watch via 3G, I do notice alot of pixelation.

    My son's IPad 2 Youtube video quality is very very good on my WiFi network at home. I was actually impressed by how well they looked!

    is this with all (or a lot) of youtube movies or just some?
    I noticed that a lot of youtube movies are very bad conversions of the original video material...

    Don't keep them to yourself, Earl. Give us a title or link to one you're not happy with and we can see if it's bad for us too, or not.

    If it's through 3G it's likely your provider is compressing the data. Mobile operators HATE YouTube due to it's potential to use massive amounts of data effortlessly.

    Ok...I checked the videos again today using wifi and the quality is much better. I myself wouldn't think that wifi would give you a better quality video.

    The router I have at home is provided by the service provider and I know it is not that good or fast. I'm going to have to look into getting a better router.

    Thanks again for the help!!!

    I was checking out some saltwater aquariums since I'm thinking about getting into that again, so it was just random videos but the quality just plain SUCKED!!
    I'm not home right now so I checked out some of those same videos again on wifi and the quality is a whole lot better.

    I gotta get me a better router.

    wifi is always better than 3G. It always will be.

    WIFI ='s quality...3G ='s convenience.

    The faster the internet connection, the better the quality will be.
