    Yes, because they are encoded in the Flash video format.

    No, not all YouTube videos are in Flash, it's slowly being offered in HTML5 as well (which the iPad can play). But there are still a large amount of videos in Flash. They won't display in the iPad YouTube app, and they won't play even if you try to search through YouTube manually.

    You Tube

    Does this mean that an 'offending' you tube file simply doesn't appear on an ipad? There's not even an entry saying that it exists, but you can't watch it? If so, you would never know that it existed in the first place. A PC will be required to check you tube to even know there was something missing. Wow. welcome to China!

    Use a web browser. No one said you HAD to use the Youtube app.

    If you use the web browser (Safari, Atomic, etc) to navigate the standard YouTube site, you will find the videos listed, but you won't be able to watch them.
