    Like zman it works in the browser and the utube app works great as well...


    ether you have a wifi issue, or a geographical issue.... my best guess...

    I had one article that had a video from youtube embedded and there was a circle with a cross through it. But I managed to double click through or go to YouTube using the app and look it up and play it.

    Works fine except when using the app and searching you don't get the same results as through a browser.

    I'm in Peru. I have two Ipads and don't work. Maybe my connection is bad. I'll try in other wireless zone.
    Thanks guy :)

    HOW does it not work?

    Are you not even getting to Youtube?
    Does the video start, and then stop?
    Do you get an error message?

    What happens?

    my youtube doesn't work either

    both on the app and in the web brower my youtube doesn't work. the video starts and then it seems like it is loading but it goes to pause. after it starts pausing, the video plays shortly then pauses repeatedly. I have not been able to watch any youtube videos. After I press play so many times, it seems like my browser just locks up. I have tried youtube in two different wifi environments (at work and at home) with the same result. interestingly, the cnet videos work.

    I am starting to think I have a defective Ipad:(

    Dom123, that is the same problem I have with Youtube. Same thing at home or on 3G. I may take it into the local Apple store and see what they say.

    OK . . . Now we know what we are working with.

    I am going to suggest that your problems are that the wireless you are connecting to, is not giving you fast enough throughput.
    • I have this problem at home. (Time Warner... older router . . . g 802 is the highest option)
    • I do NOT have this problem at work. (University wireless. good speed. n 802)
    • It has been reported by many, that 3G throughput is consistently bad for streaming video
    At home, ANY streaming video exhibits the problem behavior. . . . I cannot watch Youtube, ABCGo video, or any other streaming video at home.
    I am planning to get a new n router, and see if the problem is the router or the ISP.
    But it appears obvious that it is something about the speed of the network, rather than the iPad.


    I recommend you get the app "SpeedTestX HD". (price is Free)
    At home, on default settings, Speedtest reports from 2.72 to 5.03 Mbps, with an average of 4.45 Mbps.
    At work, SpeedTest reports 7.80 to 13.26 Mbps. with an average around 11.55 Mbps.

    Test, come here and give your results, and let's all discuss it.

    I had this exact same problem a couple of days ago - the video would start and then pause after a couple seconds, repeatedly. I even tried different YouTube videos to see if it was just that particular video, but none worked. But I hadn't been having any problems previously so I thought it was weird that this problem started. That same night I tried again and it worked fine. Haven't had it reoccur since then. I've been on the same home wifi network since I got my ipad.

    I have just started encountering the problem. For the last two weeks YouTube was doing fairly well until 2 nights ago. There's this video I desperately want to watch. It took sooooo long to load at work I gave up thinking it was the wifi's problem at work. Tried to watch it at home same thing happened. So, I checked on my pc which is on the same router. I was surprised it took less than a minute to load. What do I do now?

    Add me to the list. Videos run for maybe 20 seconds, sometimes longer, then stop because the playback catches up with the stream. I've tested this on multiple wifi networks with the same result. The same videos stream without a problem on my iPhone.

    I talked it over with apple support yesterday. They suggested that I do a restore via iTunes. This is another way of saying reinstall the operating system. (Make sure you have backed up and/or transferred purchased before trying this.)

    Process took me over an hour. Streaming is better now, but it still hangs up with too much regularity. I'm not real happy about this.

    That's a bandwidth issue. Not YouTube. Also if an application acts up it wouldn't have anything to do with a manufacturer fault...the software is the same on every device.
