    Default Youtube Videos (increase clarity) ?
    Is there any way to increase the clarity of the youtube videos that are played from the home screen? Why are they so bad that you can't even tell whats going on when you watch them ?

    Why can't I play youtube video when I go to use from safari ? If someone could answer these questions it would be greatly appreciated.

    if you are viewing over edge it is a reduced quality. if it's over wifi it should be almost "crystal clear", but YMMV.

    EDGE is AT&T's wireless data, Wi-fi is the network you are probably using at home

    YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary

    Yea and the reason you cant watch in the browser is because youtube uses flash and it is not yet supported. The movies or videos on the youtube app have been converted to h.264.

    Using Wi-Fi does increase the clarity a lot (still could use some improvement though). I must say that the more I play with this phone the more things I discover that I do not like about it. I don't know if Apple should be proud of themselves for this product because its missing alot of features and the ones it does have are done poorly. I should have know though because as always apple's hardware is always lackluster (and overpriced) and its software is amazing.

    Why the hell would they make it so the edge looks so poor. Knowing that most of the people are going to using that service instead o the their wifi connections.?

    Hmmm hopefully updates in the future will help improve a lot of the wrong things with this phone but updates can only do so much. While I do like the iphone it isn't great as they boasted it to be.

    Because they know a lot of people are using it on EDGE. Full quality over EDGE would take twice as long, and it already takes long enough on EDGE. Usability is key.
