    It's possible that the videos you can't play are not playable on mobile devices. I've run into the problem myself when trying to play certain YouTube videos. My solution was to use a third party YouTube player app. The one I use to play YouTube videos that won't play on my iPad with the YouTube app or site is YouPlayer.

    The link would be pasted into the search box in the app.

    Yes it worked, I never had to do that ,or had any other video problems before IO S 8 came out , I've been avoiding updating on ipad and iPhone 4s because of the warnings .looks like there's issues either way .

    I just tried it and the video played perfectly for me.

    Have you tried restarting your iPad? Press and hold the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears, then release both buttons and wait for the iPad to restart.

    If this doesn't work you may want to try resetting all settings. This restores all settings to their default position. To do this go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. This will not erase any data but you will have to re-enter the passwords for sites that normally remember you.
