    I am new to iPad. Observing a strange behavior - YouTube videos do not appear to be buffering as they should. If I can see how the playback progress bar catches up and gets ahead of buffering progress bar. iPad is connected to the same wifi network as my PC, Mac, iPhone. None of other devices exhibit this behavior with You Tube. Ok, iPhone has a smaller screen, but PC and Mac don't. Furthermore, even though iPad staggers with You Tube, it has no issues streaming a full movie from Netflix. I searched all forums but found references to connectivity issues only, which I think I can rule out, because of the fact that my other devices don't have this issue and that iPad does not have an issue streaming other content. The symptoms appear to be persisting on iPad+You Tube
    Any ideas anyone ?

    Yep, same thing here. My internet is reliably decent, and is working well with all other apps and on my PC and Mac. The only problem is YouTube. Hopefully it's just a small issue they can rectify in an app update!

    I notice this off and on. 2 nights ago it was unusable it was so slow, yesterday worked fine. It doesn't happen with any device other than the iPad, and only on YouTube.

    Have you tested streaming full hd clips from YouTube on your pc/Mac ? The iPad defaults to the highest quality, the web version defaults to the lowest quality.

    Two useful YouTube apps are Video Hunters and Showyou. Both recommended.
