    Hello
    I have been having an issue with my iPad lately. While in Safari, and trying to watch a YouTube video in the background, It keeps saying "loading" when I Try to play a YouTube video in the background. I am using the latest software and there does not seem to be any issues with my Internet. I was able to listen to YouTube vids in the background and surf other safari tabs just last week. Any guess as to what I can do?

    You could try a hard reset. You won't lose any data. Simply hold the Home and power buttons simultaneously for about ten seconds until the Apple logo shows, then let go. After a pause the iPad will restart.

    Another suggestion would be to force quit Safari. Double tap the Home button to show all the Apps which are currently running - then swipe Safari upwards.

    I have just had a look on the Apple Communities Forum. It seems you are not the only one with this problem. It has been suggested the problem started with an IOS update, in which case I am sure it will be fixed. Sorry I can't help further.
