    Why is it so hard to fast forward/rewind in YouTube? You literally need to make at least 3 attempts before it responds. This is frustrating for one of the most visited and popular sites/apps.

    Also, a few other problems-

    Why does it almost never load videos from links in google search results? They are the same company! It should be fully integrated and compatible with any links on google. I ALWAYS get "could not load video".

    Last but not least, have you ever been browsing the comments after watching a video and the ball of your thumb hits the "more" link in the bottom right hand corner, closing the comments and opening a new menu? Then you have to go all the way back through reopening the video, closing the video and going to the comments. Extremely annoying.

    I have that problem as well with RR/FF it is so precise. A lot of the time with the can not load is the author of the video will not allow it on mobile devices.

    one of the 1st things I install after jailbreaking is Protube it's so much better the youtube stock app faster and it allows both video and mp3 downloading the stock app stinks.

    I've learned to not use the stock YouTube app on the iPhone due to those same problems – I use the mobile site instead.

    There has been a bug before that iOS cannot load YouTube videos properly on Wi-Fi 802.11g. You either need to switch to 802.11n or 802.11b.

    By default, stock youtube app loads the best quality video.thats the reason it takes longer. add as a web icon to homescreen. its faster

    The native youtube app sucks. I prefer using the web version
