Iv'e looked up countless site involving this same problem of youtube lagging. On my mbp and iphone youtube works fine but when i try watch a youtube video on the iPad it takes way too long. This is most likely because of the youtube app for ipad [B]trying[B] to acces 720p video quality than the normal 320. I dont really mind 320 and 420 wouldn't be that bad either. Im very sure that its no my modem or routers problem because I've tested that and it works fine The solution i'm looking for is if someone could somehow use ssh and modify the default command to get 720p to get 420 or 320p video quality. Thanks!
p.s. hopefully Apple makes a software update to address this problem but right now, I could really use this! thanks!

Hmm, strange. May I ask what kind of router and internet provider you have?

I've noticed that some things are fine on YouTube and some are slow. On the slow ones it seems quicker to download the video via MXTube

I'm having the exact same problem on both ipads. My wifi 3g and my wife's ifi only version.
You tube takes FOREVER!!! And no it's not my router or internet connection either because we have absolutely no problems with our iphones or laptops.
We also keep getting asked for our routers password about every 20 minutes on our ipads. these issues are very frustrating!!!!!!
