    so with 3g will this make youtube and other videos have better quality like if you were using wifi?
    or it will just load faster and have same quality like EDGE?

    thanks:apple:

    I guess the YouTube quality will equal the WiFi quality.

    the quality is mostly based on the source not the speed.

    ^^ What are you talking about? Youtube videos on the iPhone look MUCH better when on Wi-Fi over EDGE, no matter how good the source is. On computers though, it depends on the source and not the speed.

    I really hope that 3G means better quality for youtube because I will have even more of a reason to use the app.

    Youtube integration on the iPhone reads what your connection is then grabs either hi/lo quality.

    Reference movie style i'd imagine, just like Apple's Quicktime can do. There's a fair bit on at the ADC on it. The server providing the video can check your speed / connection, and give you a quality accordingly. I'm not sure if you can force it to cache the better quality one (and on a desktop, you can see if there's the higher quality version available also).
