    Absolutely hate trying to watch YouTube videos any more. Every time it will initially load very fast, play for about three seconds and then hang. A couple minutes later it will start up for a few seconds, and then hang again. Only YouTube does this. I can watch Netflix, Hulu and Vudu with no problems. I'm connected to the internet via airport LAN to DSL. Have an iPad 1 with maybe 60% free. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you /rant.

    It drove me crazy too. But someone on the forum recommended a free app called Speedbit. I installed and I find I can watch the YouTube videos now.

    Mine works fine, probably a function of

    your router speed.

    I just let it load at it's own rate and when loaded, touch the arrow and it plays through just like Netflix.

    I could be wrong here guys but this seems like a simple problem. LOL It clearly has something to do with your Internet connection, it may be weak or you need to get faster Internet.
