    YouTube issue

    My wife posted a video on YouTube, her IMac will pull it up with a search, on my iPad using the same exact wording, using the UT app, or going directly into UT by the web, will not pull it up. It will pull up another video with virtually the same name.
    Anyone have a explanation for this?

    Under "broadcasting and sharing options" for particular video.
    Syndication setting should be set to:

    "Yes, make this video available on mobile phones and TV. Note, the video may not be available on all devices due to copyright or licensing issues."

    That may help....

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe the mobile and desktop versions of the website use different servers, and the search database isn't identical.

    Try going to the bottom of the page in Safari on the iPad and choosing the desktop site. See if the search works then.

    Warning, the desktop site is a little wonky in Safari on the iPad, but should work. To get back to the tablet optimized site enter m.youtube.com in Safari's URL field.

    YouTube dumped the tablet version a while ago. Now it's just desktop and mobile. Html5 is coming soon.

    That explains things. I thought it looked different. Still, the mobile site works ok for casual viewing, once you figure out you need to hit the icon at the top right for more options.

    None of the YouTube versions work for me in safari. Just says "address is invalid" when I play a video.

    Strange, I don't have any problems. Maybe we are just having opposite luck in picking the videos. I go the the m.youtube.com site, mostly.

    I tried them both. Maybe safari download manager is messing something up...

    Hmm, a jailbreak tweak I gather. Well, we better stop drifting off topic before Sweetpoison chastises us, again.

    I'm hoping the OP will come back and let us know if switching to the desktop site makes a difference. I hate not knowing if my theories pan out, though I suppose I could test it myself.
