    Hi all.

    I have just got my new iPad (iPad 3)
    Really loving it.
    But there is someone that is making me crazy.
    When ever I try to play a YouTube video for most of them it says that the video is not available, even for those that I regularly play on my laptop.
    There are only very few videos that I am able to play on iPad.

    What is the problem? What is the solution???

    I am guessing that this is because these videos might be flash based and iPad only plays html5.
    Is there any true plugin for iPad so that I can play flash?
    I mean a proper plugin, not some streaming browser type thing...

    I have heard of Frash but I think it is obsolete now... If I jailbreak the iPad can I get any better solution to solve this YouTube not playing problem?


    Really appreciate your help

    If that's the case the android tablets are way better then iPad....
    At least I can watch all the videos on it...plus I can get all the apps for free without doing any jailbreak/rooting...

    I believe YouTube are slowly moving their clips over to the more compliant format. Newer popular ones are automatically added in the new format, it is the older ones that may take some time to have converted over.

    Flash video is dying off, websites are slowly moving across to the newer format that will be universal for all devices. It is just that Apple appear to be ahead of the trend :)

    Now websites still using WMV now that's annoying!

    There are some flash browsers in the app store. I don't recommend jailbreaking, bad experience.
