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?

Web browsing on my iPad is pretty quick. Loads up extremely fast. Only thing I have problem with slow loading is youtube

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

I have restarted my old router and updated the firmware but my youtube was still slow. I bought a new router and I'm still having problems with my youtube! it is still very slow so the video always pause cause it has to load. I uploaded a quick video of it with my iphone to show you guys what it is doing. I don't know what it is considering I bought a new router too!

Is youtube fast on your iPhone with the same wifi connection?

I'm not having issuesKeithsta

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?
