    Hi, does anyone have problems watching the WWDC on their iPads?

    I keep getting this icon that prevents me from watching the video on my iPad. Initially, I thought it was a region setting that prevents me from watching, but when I used my iMac 24" to view the videos, I had no problems.

    Incidentally, I'm linked to the WWDC address from Apple's homepage. Had problems with the keynote, but not the other two videos on the iPhone.

    It says you can watch the video on demand exclusively here in Quicktime and MPEG4. Thought the iPad supports MPEG4?

    Thank god it's not only me.......

    Thought I screwed up some firmware or something.
    Well, I tried again just now and still no luck.

    Wonder what's the issue with the video. Codec problems or incompatible encoding ?

    I'm curious. Are you using exactly this link:

    Apple - QuickTime - WWDC 2010 Keynote Address

    Because if you open it on an iPad, it starts immediately. If you open it on a PC, I get a choice of several resolutions/options.

    Maybe you've got a link to one of the versions that won't play on the iPad.

    Hi Wot-Fan,
    I'm using the default Safari Browser.


    Hi Numblock,
    I tried using your link and I got a cross right across the play button also and it can't play.


    Hi Izzy
    Are you able to click on Numblock's link and see if you can play? If yes, that would mean that there could be a regional issue. Will prob highlight this to Apple.

    Downloaded the Podcast with my MacBook when it became available, and once I synched my iPad it was there and watched the entire (BORING) event on my iPad with no issues.

    I can stream it from the apple website, but when I try to download it from iTunes on my ipad2, it gives me the same error message. "Apple WWDC Keynote cannot be played on this iPad"

    What's up with that? The stream from the apple webpage is low-quality, and I'm on wi-fi. Im glad I'm not the only one with this issue, but i don't understand it at all

    Anybody have an idea?
