    Default YouTube slow on iPad ?
    Hey I was wondering if anyone have a complaint about YouTube on the iPad? Everything is great except for YouTube! It takes at least 1-2 hour for me to load a 4 minute YouTube video halfway . I want to watch YouTube videos but it just takes too long. I could watch a entire movie and the YouTube video isn't finish loading

    Wow to even now it goes that far in that amount of time is patience. Mine loads very quickly. Maybe a router issue?

    Yeah my laptop broke so in mean time im using my iPad as a Internet device but YouTube is slow. I'm waiting until I can fix my laptop or purchase a MacBook. Hmmmm May I ask what kind router you use? I mightngo router shopping tomorrow and see if that is the problem.

    My laptop is super fast on my router so I don't see why my iPad YouTube isn't

    I have a Netgear "N". Not sure on the actual model cause I never paid attention. How fast is the web browsing on it?

    Mine loads almost instantly .. Most likely a router issue i think ... just reset you router. Usually a button on the back of the router, you have to use a pin. press and hold for 30 seconds. Try that ...

    I tried all that already and my YouTube takes forever. I have to pause it and go do something for a few hour and it still takes for ever to load a 4 minute video. I guess I really have to buy a new router. Mine is probably getting too old since I bought it in 2008

    I will record a video of me using YouTube on my iPad and post it later

    Yes! I too am having YouTube issues. When I run speediest, I'm getting 11mb download so I know that my connection is not the problem. Netflix and the Abc apps work well. My router is a three year old dlink dgl-4300. I too have been thinking of buying a new router, however, I'd be really pissed to go and get a new on and have it solve nothing. It's got gigabit Ethernet, though it is lacking wireless n, I feel that it is more that sufficient.

    What kind of router do you have? Maybe we can figure out this issue. I wonder if it is common on certain routers.

    I have a d-link dgl-4300. My YouTube streaming issue is hit and miss. Sometimes it works fine. Other times it completely sucks. Also, I get disconnected from my network randomly throughout the day. It reconnects quickly but I don't think it should be doing that. I tried changing my security settings from using wpa to just using Mac filtering and it hasn't helped. So I'm confident that my router is not the problem.

    YouTube is very slow for me as well. I am also having the wifi drop every so often too. I have already went to Apple once and they swapped it out. Getting to be very annoying. Any suggestions my modmyi friends?
