    Hey guys, i have searched around and haven't found anything relating to this so i'm wondering if its just me..

    The issue is that the YouTube results seem somewhat 'limited'.. I can't see the same results that i would normally see on a PC or desktop system. Typically Music videos and things of that nature don't even appear. Anyone have an idea as to why?

    Thanks, and sorry if it has been asked before.

    (PS this is my first post on the forums!)

    The video's uploader may have only allowed the video to be seen on a desktop computer rather than a mobile device. This is true with most music videos.

    Most videos are coded in flash which as we know the iPad nor the iPhone can run.... You only see the videos that have been coded in HTML5.

    it's a combination of the answers above really. some videos are available in multiple format including mp4 format so we can see that. and others have disabled the video for mobile devices.

    It's most likely the latter.
