    Hi all
    Can someone please tell me why the video quality of things like YouTube and other online video sites are rubbish. I thought that YouTube videos would be pretty good quality, I'm using the yuotube app. Is ther a video setting somewhere that sets the quality.

    Thanks

    I remember this happening to me when I first got my iPad. And it still does if I don't have a really strong wifi connection.

    Are you on 3G or wifi?

    Yes - as Marie says, you need a good connection - i.e. A good bandwidth. If the bandwidth (Mbps) is poor the encoding protocol used for the video compresses the images in order to adapt to the poor bandwidth. In doing so, the image quality inevitably suffers. Check out what bandwidth - Mbps - you've currently got. WiFi too adapts to the link quality dynamically. If the signal strength/link quality is poor, the WiFi protocol reduces the data rate in order to be able to operate under the poorer conditions.
