Has something happened to the ipod youtube? Every time I try to go to it I get 'youtube not available'. All other pages work fine in safari (even youtube.com, which of course doesn't work due to the lack of flash support).

Anyone know what URL it goes to to play its stuff? Possibly that server's down.

No problems in the US.

No problems in the US.

That's what I'm wondering... maybe the not-so-legally activated iPhones (by definition all the ones outside the US) are experiencing the same issues...

We have 2 i touches and both are unable to access youtube.
Call me suspicious but does anybody think they have been turned off? My son and I have been watching a lot of music video on youtube but not buying any music from the i store...

Eh.. sorry. You're right! :o
I was searching the forums for YouTube problems, and I didn't notice this was an iPod touch forum...

But, now you know iPhones have the same problems :D

Nah.. they wouldn't turn it off - it's a feature of the device. It's just busted.

is this definitely because of a server prob? or becuase they figured out we doing it not so legally on a hacked iphone?

mine still isnt working, it worked the first time i tried it yesterday, but after that, nothing!

It seems that the problem also occurs on iPod touches.
So, it seems that it is not iPhone-hacked related.

Here's to hoping....

Youtube has been intermittent today on my legal US iPhone. Except for the past few hours, it has been off completely.

off again in the uk, I guess the sheer number of people attempting to access it through whichever channel iPod touch uses is causing the drop-out.

Mine came back on my ipod Touch last night This morning its gone again So for
nearly 48 hrs unable to receive You Tube. Wifi working fine can download music from
itunes(funny how that never goes down) and browse the internet.If You Tube does
not work or is unrealible why have it in the touch its one of the features Apple use to sell this product.
Having said that I love my Touch I just hate having something on it I an not use

Is there ever going to be flash support on these things?
