    Hi,

    I'm having the same issue. Video has sound but no picture but i have found this.

    If i use safari on my iPad to access youtube and try to run the video i get the issue.
    If i run a link to the same video from a chat forum in opens in a different player and the video works.

    The thing i can think of is the java or browser update is some how causing issues when you use the web browser to display an embedded video.

    Hope this helps

    I have the same issue. YouTube gives me a frozen letterbox video still image, but with sound. No reset or reboot helps. I can view other video OK. I am wondering if this issue arose on a particular date-say Monday?

    Thanks to all who have replied and confirmed that it is not just me. I have checked the YouTube help forum and many people are having the same problem, which appears to have just started Monday morning.

    I also can only play sound whilst using safari to view youtube videos only the sound works. I am no longer able to download youtube videos inside the downloader app i bought i guess it uses safari inside the app. But youtube plays fine by using the original app included on all ipads as standard. I have tried tweaking loads of settings and hard resets several times and now i have reformated my ipad completely through itunes only to find the problem is still there. Come on apple fix this.
    Michael UPDATE ----ALL FIXED NOW I THINK IT WAS INFACT A YOUTUBE PROBLEM AND NOT IPAD SOFTWARE FAULT!

    I already started a thread about this on here, also found one on macrumors yesterday. People know about it. It has nothing to do with your individual iPads pretty much every iPad has this problem with YouTube mobile When directly on the site. Embeded videos work fine, yourube app works fine. On iphone mobile site and app work fine. We have to forward the complaint to YouTube.

    People should stop giving rubbish help.

    I know that may sound harsh, but it really doesnt help if people that dont have an ipad themselves to just check if its still working for them before talking about rebooting and stuff.

    The mobile site of youtube was bugged as it turned out, so EVERYONE with an ipad had the same problem. So to those giving out tips before checking it themselves: please check if you have the same problem first.

    And why would people recommend to check some addon to download youtube to a mac when the problem was clearly reported to be on an ipad.

    Please forgive my tone, but sometimes its frustrating when people just think they know what they are talking about and dont read the full thread.
