    I tried to load a video onto YouTube to view it with my iPad, but it gives me blank screen where the video should play and tells me my iPad doesn't support the video. I changed it a few times with handbrake, and even loaded it onto the iPad to make sure formatting was ok, which it is, but the video once loaded on youtube won't play.

    Any ideas? My last try was a 1280-720, video codec MPEG-4.

    I assume that video hasn't been processed for mobile devices yet. It may take hours/days.

    If any video uploads to YouTube (no matter the settings), it will play on iPhones/iPads, you just have to wait for YouTube to do their part.

    Uhm... ok I will wait. The video I uploaded more than 24 hours ago still won't play... how long should I wait before I know something's wrong?

    I have noticed that some YouTube videos when appearing inline in a website, have a not-playable sign in the middle of them.
