    Hello everyone, great forum you have here.

    We just received our Ipad 2 yesterday and am having fun learing how to use it. I noticed a strange phenomena on youtube. I did a search for, "ipad 2 users guide," and a lot of the videos that showed up wouldn't play, it would say, "video not currently available." At first I was concerned that it there was a problem with my ipad, but then I realized it was only happening on video's within this search, and it wasn't all of the videos, but the majority of them.

    Is it possible that apple is somehow blocking my ipad from watching these? Thanks in adavance.

    Another possibility is that some videos can take a long time to load and buffer and won't start playing until they are at least partially loaded.
