    One thing I've really hated about my iPad 1 is the YouTube app is so worthless. Videos are always buffering, takes me 10 minutes to watch a 2 minute clip, drives me crazy (it's the iPad, not my network).

    Any info on if the iPad 2 is able to stream YouTube better?

    Solution for iPad 1 users: jailbreak and install MxTube. You can download HD videos from YouTube. You can even download multiple at a time.

    That way: No buffering ;)

    I don't have an iPad1 to compare it to, but I'm streaming YouTube great on the 2. Crystal clear HD...

    YouTube HD video looks smooth, gorgeous and buffer-free on my iPad 2. Of course this is with wifi. 3G isn't nearly as nice.

    My iPad is already jailbroken, just didn't know about the MxTube app. Wow oh my god, this is really cool. I can watch YouTube videos on my iPad finally!

    Thank you. I'd hug you, but that might just be weird! :D

    You can also download "yourtubeHD for iPad" from cydia. It let you DL straight from YouTube app. It cost a few bucks buy intergrates nicely into the YouTube app.
