    Whi cant I see any official music on youtube?

    I searched "california gurls" in google, and there are links to official videos. Click them, and youtube says it cant load movie. Whatever. Now i try another song, when i search for it in youtube it filters out all videos with official music (only crappy live versions show up). I google for official vids, but again, cannot be displayed.

    Has everyone just been dealing with this? I dont want a youtube whre i cant watch or hear any decent music....

    Youtube hasnt ported everything over to HTML5 yet. Its still pretty much in beta for the iPad. Remember that youtube is a Flash site and the iPad doesnt do flash.

    maybe try searching youtube itself on the html5 page or even using the youtube app in the ipad.

    I am using the youtube app, but i dont think its a flash problem because all vids work fine except official music ones.

    This is a known issue and doesn't affect only music videos. In time there will be a flash player for iOS to take care of this.

    Sometimes official YouTube releases are blocked overseas due to copyright restrictions.

    Hmmm... I am in the US, and im fairly certain it isnt a flash player issue. every single official katy perry video doesnt work, so it seems like filtering to me.
