    There are a fair number of YouTube videos that will not run on the iPad from the native YouTube app. Whether its a format issue or other issue I do not know but I encounter the same error with regularity.

    Are you sure NO videos will play? How many did you try and were they all on the same channel or from the same author? Try hitting most popular or highly rated videos and see if problem persists. If it does check restrictions as setup on the iPad as they may be prohibiting videos with a rating that fails the restrictions test.

    Do you have restrictions active at any level? Is the device jail broken?

    What have you done with your iPad between the time you were last able to play YouTube videos and the first time you noticed the problem?Did you add or delete anything or change any of the settings or restrictions?

    With regards to your question when an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When an App or your iPad begin to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!
