    It looks like this is a universal problem. Obviously the strength or proximity of the WIFI connection has nothing to do with it. It looks as if this might be a basic flaw in the iPad specifications, in which case the only solution is to live with excruciatingly slow upload time or to use the laptop/desktop or whatever other device might be availble for Youtube viewing.

    I got the problem when I changed ISP so are blaming them. My modem is from my original provider and useing it to my new provider. As the modem is manufactured for my old Internet company, that going to the router web page all the information for the company is in the settings except for the login in details to my new company. So I put all blame back to that although my eMac streams quite well and blue ray player that has YouTube connection is faster again. I'll try this DNS trick I reckons and see what happens

    Tried a couple of YouTubes with the DNS change and yes, it's much faster and not stuttering on me.

    Thanks to the poster with that information, you've made me happy

    Depends on so many factors.
    Time of day, contention ratio, popularity of the clip etc.
    The fact I can watch several hours of streaming video over wifi suggests the problem lies the other side of the router.

    If it's important I use a video downloader and watch when it's finished.

    Sadly MiTube has been pulled from the appstore due to unauthorised api, but is available if you're jailbroken. Think there is a good alternative though.

    I brought this for the wife and now I wonder if I should take it back and exchange it. I looked at the same video at the same time on my Apple laptop, and main frame computer. Both the Apple laptop and my main frame computer didn't stop or skip at all. The laptop was hooked up wireless and the main frame hooked up direct. So i feel it isn't my internet connection. Both the Ipad and laptop was sitting in my lap within 5 foot of the wireless router. After reading some of the other members input I feel it is a hit and miss...Mike

    I tested YouTube load times on several different videos on my iPad vs MBP vs netbook vs Android phone and the iPad was always in last place by a significant amount of time. I don't understand either why the iPad loads YouTube so slowly.

    Interesting article on Macworld which might help, since the graphics chip uses a lot of system memory.
