    I did a search and found a post from June so I apologize if it has been recently discussed. If I watch a video from youtube app with wifi it takes longer to load then with 3G but it is high quality where as the 3G quality is very poor. It is almost unwatchable on 3G. Why is that and can you change a setting or something to improve the quality over 3G? Thanks for the help.

    YouTube scales video based on connection speed. There are no settings in the iPad YouTube app to change. You can log into youtube's website and see if there are settings there to force a certain speed.

    Only when dealing with 3G. When I am on Wifi - no issues whatsoever.

    And no, there are no settings in the youtube website to control the video throughput.

    YouTube works great on my WiFi. Don't have my MicroSim as of yet.

    Here's how to watch high quality youtube while using 3g..

    1) open Safari.
    2) type www.youtube.com
    3) search video you wanna watch and before
    playing it click on the little square box
    (located at bottom right) that says "HQ".
    4) once HQ box is red click play on video and enjoy
    high quality youtube over 3g.

    you can also add an icon on your home screen for "high quality youtube" by clicking on the + in safari and then clicking on "add to home screen"

    Cheers,
    Farhan
