    I keep reading that the WiFi connection on the iPad is inconsistent at best.

    Since streaming videos are a huge part of what I do, has anyone who actually owns an iPad had this problem?

    Kinda depressing (can't test it myself, not yet available in my region).

    Thks for your help

    Youtube on ipad does not work

    Clicking the Youtube tv on my ipad never comes with you tube it continuous searching forever.

    If I go to Youtube using Safari on my ipad (which works well) and then select a movie like "Bird and Fortune", it loads forever and never comes with the actual movie.

    If I do the same thing on my mac using the same WIFI right next to my ipad, it works in a flash, the movie plays in just a few seconds.

    Hence, the ipad fails here for whatever reason.

    I have a 32 gig 3G. I THOUGHT I'd finally run into the wifi issues yesterday, but it turned out my router was to blame, as my PS3 was also failing to connect wirelessly. I reset the router and everything was fine.

    I stream with netflix and abc player all the time and it works fine. ABC player gets better quality than I'm used to by watching hulu on PS3 with PlayOn.

    Carry out a hard reboot of your iPad

    I carried out a hard reboot of my ipad, and youtube suddenly worked and made me as enthousiastic as Steve Jobs was during his presentation of the iPad.

    A hard reboot is done by pressing and holding the on/off key and then pressing the "home key" (hardware key) for a couple of seconds until the ipad reacts.
