    I have the same problem. I checked the time and date on my iPad and it was already correct. Did you do anything else to fix the YouTube connection problem? Mine hasn't been working since I got it on April 5th.

    Connect to iTunes and sign into the account. Make sure you can access iTunes store then perform a sync. It should work.

    All you have to do is reset your time and date in settings. For some odd reason though, my computer's time and date are never correct, even after I've changed them.

    I've been researching this problem for quite a while. Although I haven't pinpointed any possible solution yet but here's what I have noticed:

    The videos on the YouTube app don't always fail to play with the classic "cannot connect" message. It only fails when I'm using wifi at home with my ISP. If I'm staying at a friends house with Different ISP, it works Like a Swiss watch.

    Now whether my ISP somehow blocks most videos on YouTube is a weak claim, note that whenever I try to load the same video a couple of times, it works. So there's some sort of delay.

    My question is, with my current set up, is it possible to port forward the YouTube app on my iPad through my wifi modem. Has anyone done it before???

    Appreciate any feedback!

    Sounds like a router blocking issue...did you try resetting router to factory settings?....how old is router? There have been many other posts bout this and when they bought a new router everything was fine.

    I'm having the same problem. It was working then yesterday started asking me for username and password.. but it doesn not accept them, and does not show where to go to fix. I tried resyncing but this does not work either. Any solutions would be appreciated.
