    Turn off ipads visibility?

    I often find I cannot watch videos on YouTube because it says the video has not been enabled for mobile devices. Howdoes youtube knows am using a ipad? Can I turn off whatever is showing ipAd as mobile device so the site thinks I am using a PC & therefore will allow metro watch whatever I want?

    I haven't tried it myself, so caution advised, but I believe some of the alternative browsers can be set up to announce themselves as desktop variants. iCab might be a good place to start, but some feedback from users may be useful.
