    After doing one or two videos on youtube the red arrow which is tapped to start the videos seems to lock up and no amount of tapping gets it to respond . If I come out of youtube and then go back in it seems to work but then locks up again. This problem has only occurred in the last couple of days and there was nothing apparently wrong before that. Hope someone out there can solve my problem.My thanks if you can.

    Hi I have the same thing and have found if you select the quality setting like 240 or 360 first it then appears to play every time.

    Thanks Richie, I tried your solution and it worked fine but there must be more to it than that. I've been using youtube on my ipad since April and never had this problem and so I presume something is not running right. Thanks for your help though.

    Hi Terry
    I know this may seem odd, but try clearing the cache-memory and cookies...
    And double click the home button and close all the programs running there.
    This will help improve your os running hopefully.
    Safari-Clear History-Clear Cookies Data
    Also
    Click on Advanced and Website Data, that should be empty or cleared as well.
    Helps my iPad run smoother, quicker, cleaner, better, happier!~!

    Thanks Chas, I tried all you suggested and so far the youtube videos seem to be working much better infact the red run arrow isn't appearing now. The only thing I haven't cleared is cache- memory, which setting does that come under? Double clicking the home button was very good, I've never used that feature and hadn't realised that all the icons were piling up out of sight! So thanks again. Terry
