    hello everyone, my iPad is jail broken. Today I can search for videos but they simply won't load.I ve been trying for the last three hours but unfortunately no luck. I have also restored my iPad but nothing. I hope it's not because of the jailbreak although I don't think so because the last 3 days everything was working fine. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I've moved your post to the Hacking section, because I think it will receive better attention there...

    So in safari or in the YouTube app?
    The jailbreak wouldn't affect this unless you downloaded something bad.

    We need more detail. We can't read your mind, especially through the Internet. :D

    In the YouTube app. I can search for videos, but they won't load. After trying to load I get a message that the video cannot be loaded. Thanks

    What is your internet speed?

    And is it only one video or many?

    It could be a flash video, but that hasn't been a problem since most of YT converted to a Flash/HTML5 Hybrid. BUT...It could be your internet speed where ever you are at...Or something else entirely.

    Update:
    1. I restarted the iPad. Nothing happened.
    2. Restored iPad to factory settings. Nothing!
    3. Uploaded my apps, restarted and still nothing!
    4. Restarted the modem and contacted the Internet provider,all working fine.
    5. Checked on my laptop, YouTube works fine.
    I can search for videos, results are showing. I can view comments. Basically everything is working on the iPad and YouTube except the videos which cannot be played. The message that I get is "this movie cannot be played".
    I am asking you, the experienced users of iPad. I am new to this device...I think I tried everything. Please if there is anything I missed let me know.
    Thanks

    You are using the YouTube APP and NOT just browsing to the YouTube website, aren't you?

    Can you give us a video title to search for an try?

    I am using the YouTube app. I tried the web but no luck. Please try on "feature" the video "we were the news of the world". No video will play. I tried more than 50 videos but no luck. On the other hand I opened the IMdb app and all videos and trailers play normal. :( thanks for your interest. I will be a very happy man if this gets sorted.

    Don't know what to tell you. It plays fine.
    How are you connected? Wifi or 3G?

    I am using wifi. Is there a way of reinstalling the YouTube app? Or maybe some settings that I need to alter?
    Thanks

    Sorry for bumping this thread again but I am really stuck here. After I restored my iPad to it's factory settings the problem with you tube (both the app and the web through safari) still won't show any videos. Everything else works fine. I jailbreak my iPad but restores everything back to normal with the new update. Do you thing that a damage is done to the iOS and although I restored everything to factory setting the problem is still there? Come on people you are the only guys who can help. I am so disappointed. YouTube was playing fine until yesterday:( I am counting on your experience to solve this. I cannot take it to an apple store because there is store in my country.
    Thanks

    I don't know what your problem is, but there is no way the jailbreak can "damage" a device or the OS. A restore can't leave traces behind from a previous installation...
    It is much kore likely to be something related to your local network. What, I don't know.
    The fact it happens on a freshly restored iPad tells me it is not the device at all...
    Sorry.

    Thankful for all your replies and interest guys. Problem still there.I hope that there is nothing wrong with my iPad and that this will eventually be fixed. I also hope that there was no actual problem on the iOS even if it was restored back to factory settings. It sucks though, being able to search videos,view comments, but can't play the videos.all other apps work fine.what's funny though, is the fact that it suddenly stopped working when it was jail broken. After the restore and reset the problem was the same. I am so disappointed...back to my laptop :(

    Found your post by google search. Just because misery loves company thought I'd let you know that for the past few days my YouTube is exactly the same.

    I live in Cyprus too. All I can guess is that it might have something to do with the power cut. May have tripped something in the wifi router or they've done something to save power. No idea but strange that we in the same bout at the same time.

    My wife's iPads the same too. Just spent half the night resetting both o them etc. So think we best get on to Cyta. Let me know how you get on as my Greek is none existent.

    Cheers

    Hi Badgerspot, I rang cyta and they told me that they don't have any problems with their servers. My pc connects to YouTube. It's only the iPads that have this problem!!!!! I also asked another friend of mine and he said the same thing!!!! It's either a problem with Cyta and maybe they haven't realized it yet or they are not telling us!!!
    Unless it's a virus or something is wrong with our iPads! I hope not!
    thanks and please let me know if you have any news or solutions regarding this matter.
    Thanks
