    As far as connections on you tube or any other videos, videos play almost instantly. The quality depends on the video. You tube on my iPad and iPhone 4 are much better than apple tv2 but my connection is pretty fast.

    No kidding, i stream a 22 minute show from Hulu with an "occasional" buffer depending on which of my kids is connected to my wifi. But I cant stream 3 minute video off YouTube.

    I have had the same issue as peled, it gets slower in the evening. I have noticed however that the wireless baby monitor in our house interferes with the wireless signal from the router, as they use the same frequency. This can also happen with cordless phones and other wireless devices. Other than that, could it be that the videos on youtube were different file types when loaded up and ipad has a problem with some of those types?

    I am still surprised that this is not a MAJOR issue with the iPad and something discussed more.

    Syncing seems to mess with YouTube speeds

    I was having same issues with iPad YouTube, but after restoring to factory settings it was fine - YouTube was just as good as on any other similar device over wifi.

    BUT - when I synced to my iMac I experienced the same problem again.

    Anyone had a similar experience?
