I must be stupid but but, I tried terra and located it by search, bot it was in flash. I tried safari again and did find the desk top tab at the bottom, thanks, I was able to search and find the video, but in flash again, but the one directly above it with the same name was not in flash. I went back to try the direct link from wife in a email, pulled the video up and it was not in flash.

I give.

In general, there may be a few reasons why a video can be found on YouTube for desktop but not on a mobile device:

The owner of the video has set the syndication for the video to allow viewing via desktop only.
To change these settings to allow mobile viewing, edit your video on desktop YouTube.

Select 'Syndication' under Broadcast and Sharing Options.
Select 'Yes, make this video available on mobile phones and TV'.

There are also some reasons why a video may not be available on YouTube (desktop or mobile):
The privacy setting for the video is marked as private or unlisted and you have not been given the link to view the video (Friends can’t see private videos).
The video is not available in certain countries (Video not available in my country).

Thanks

OUTL4W, thanks it worked, I have not taken the time to learn the ins and outs of YouTube. We have never had this problem before, and we were only working on desk or laptop CPUs, not the tablet. I love most things about the iPad, but but they are different, some times frustrating.
