    Replying to Youtube Comments Using ipad

    I'm all registered, logged in and have my own videos up. I'm able to leave new comments, but don't seem able to directly reply to comments on my videos. How can I do this or can I do it at all?

    Well, yeah. If you look closely you can add a comment, but I don't think it replies directly to a specific comment someone else left.

    I then don't quite understand....if I wanted to reply to someones comment i would insert "@username ~" then leave comment so they would know I was specificly talking to them.

    Sorry if I'm frustrating you. Here's the difference: If you're on a common computer, the comment will have a reply button to the right and responding that way will actually cause that user to be notified. The way you mentioned is alright, but they'll only see your response if they go back to your video to check; there's no notification.

    Yes.Me too. This is a real issue and you've described it well. I think it probably has something to do with the iPad's support for javascript and the way YouTube have implemented the buttons. Right now, the only way to 'reply' is use @username but that might not notify the user (as you mention).

    Also, I cannot accept comments (only remove them). If I hit accept it shows a brief view of the reply button but goes back to accept and nothing else happens. I think this is where the buggy/clever javascript is.

    I can't see there being a fix for this, it's Google not coding to the iPad's standards (and Apple won't change that I don't think) I'll have a good look though and report back if I find a solution, at the moment this is the top hit on Google though.

    Thumbs up SOLVED - Use M.youtube.com not WWW.youtube.com

    Ok, I solved it already. The problem is with 'double-u double-u double-u' dot YouTube dot com.

    I go here by default as I get emails when there is a comment to reply to. But the full site has functionaliity not handled well by iPad/Safari.

    SOLUTION: Go to 'My Channel' or any link on YouTube and you should be redirected to 'm' dot youtube - here you get a cut down version (for 'mobile') and it doens't look great on an iPad in widescreen, but from here you can reply to comments quickly, easily and directly.

    Hope that helps you OP.

    Any chance that YouTube or Apple will fix the built in app, so that all YouTube functionality is included in the built in app?
