    Glad you've gotten it figured out!

    I can't help you with the how the 3G works, hopefully one of the guys with a 3G iPad can answer your question. I use a Verizon MiFi card and my youtube videos look like HD ALL the time.

    This has been discussed to DEATH on these forums.

    The Youtube App reduces the bitrate of Youtube videos when using 3G.

    This has nothing to do with AT&T 3G.

    If you fool your ipad into thinking it is using wifi when it is really using 3G (use Mifi or a 3G hotspot for example) the youtube videos are delivered at full bitrate.

    The ABC app did the same thing when it was first released. This was fixed in an update.

    That I did. Some people do not have a router at all, so when I am out in the field, apparently they will not be all that good.

    So what is your point? It will probably be again and again. ;)

    this.

    When I tether through my phone, youtube is as pretty as can be.

    Shame that the quality is too good and my 3G connection is too slow! :(

    It's not that your 3G is too slow, it's more of a fault in the 3G system, probably something required through AT&T. Your 3G is faster than my Verizon MiFi (I've tested 3G against my MiFi on my iPhone), yet when I'm connected through my MiFi, my iPad doesn't know the difference and though I may have to pause the video and wait for it to load the picture quality is awesome.

    I'm having problems with my Wi-Fi connection, or at least I think that's the problem. But anyway, when I load a video on YouTube from my iPad, it takes forever to load. However, if I use my desktop or laptop, the video loads quicker, without any problems. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

    Did you use 3G? That always give poor quality, it can't help itself.

    Did you even read this thread? You obviously did not.

    It has nothing to do with 3G.

    3G in most locations is going to be slower then WIFI, so yes it is a 3G issue. The better the speed of the connection, the better quality of the video.... that simple.

    If you need to prove this for your self, get one of the speed test apps from the app store. Run in while on WIFI, run it again on 3G.... there ya have it :)

    Just did mine using "Speed Test" on my 3G iPhone

    3G = 1258 down 210 up
    WIFI =7462 down 1039 up

    All speeds kps.....

    I have hunted, researched, called AT&T, called Apple, and complained to my friends. The end result is that when an Apple product connects to YouTube through AT&T 3g there is a throttling back of bitrates. I use a Palm pre and made fun of the iphone’s piss poor YouTube quality on many occasions.

    Now how do I know it is a combination of AT&T and the YouTube app? I have jailbroken my Ipad and installed the 3g unrestrictor. It is the only jailbroken app that I have installed and it makes the Ipad think that it is on Wifi. Magically, YouTube looks perfect on 3G. My guess is it is a way for AT&T to save bandwidth and they probably agreed to a filter of some sort with Apple.

    I know it is not because of a slow 3g as I get on average 2700 down 300 up in Atlanta. It is so quick that I do not even turn my WiFi on anymore.

    “If they find out about the Youtube bitrate, we blew it”


    That is a fake Steve Jobs quote.
