Bought ipad2 3 week back. Since then my you tube video(most of the time) stops playing. If I scroll the play bar it scroolls to the relevant picture frame,but stop playing. I use it over 802.11 b or g. If I play the video over pc it's ok.

Also is there an app or way to find why youtube is not continue to play.

youtube app in iOS loads the highest quality video. so it's a bit slow to load on average internet connection.

better use youtube from safari, and turn on HQ, it's still faster than the crappy default youtube app

If the video has HD resolution, it will load the highest resolution video so it's slow. Try to find clips in youtube that Uploaded by someone without a HD res. it will load faster. So the alternative is to use youtube within safari.
