    So, on some of the forums I browse there are embedded YouTube clips in some o the threads. Now on my iPhone these clips display a red and white play icon. When I try to play them it says I need flash or the latest QuickTime.

    How do I get it just to play YouTube clips the way it did previously.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you installed the YouTube App for iOS? They released one when Apple and Google went their separate ways.

    Have you downloaded the YouTube app from the App Store? If not, that's your problem. If you have, then I don't have an answer for you.

    That's strange. I'm using an iPhone 5, with iOS 6 and haven't ran into any YouTube issues. Share a link with your problem.

    I think the first thing we need to figure out here is why Google's YouTube app sucks the high hard one.

    It seems clicking on videos in safari don't auto link to the app...I wasn't really expecting them to though.

    It did for me, until I realized the YouTube app was garbage.
    Slow loading, buffering, sketchy quality in some cases.

    The YouTube app (that google made) is awful. Apple removes their app, and they come back with some worthless junk? C'mon.

    It's even worse on iPad due to no google YouTube app available. I downloaded Jasmine which helps but so many videos are restricted by google it not as good as thing were.
    Even using safari pre ios6 was better than it is now. I was looking for some music earlier ad couldn't even find a version that didn't require flash. Have google started reversing the HTML 5 thing as it does seem like there's less in the way of playable videos.

    ----------

    In fact they are reversing video which were playable previously. I just checked a video I uploaded which I know I played to a friend when showing him my iPad. Now it requires flash,wtf !

    I think we are witnessing corperate teddy throwing ?

    I've said it before, Google and Apple have broken up. The magic is gone forever.
