I just got my iPhone 4 today and I was trying to play a YouTube video over my WiFi network. However, when it is supposed to start playing, it says it cannot be played. I've tried it over two WiFi networks in my house and it's not working. It is working over 3G though. Anyone know what the problem is? Thanks.

Yeah, I called Apple support and the lady said it's normal? She said that YouTube works when it wants to even on her iPhone so I have no idea what's going on here...

Do you have an iPhone 3G sitting next to the iPhone 4 so that you can compare then side-by-side? The old iPhone still works on WiFi. I have not noticed a difference with the iPhone 4. My iPhone 3G loaded Youtube vids quickly sometimes and like a snail at other times. Same with the iPhone 4. With all smartphones, there are some Youtube videos that say "cannot be played on mobile," and there are other videos that can be played on mobile. Be sure it's the phone and not the video.
