    I've never streamed YouTube on 3g, always wifi. I tried it on wifi for the first time today and it looks so crap but when I went back to wifi it looks crystal clear. What's the deal?

    Because AT&T doesn't want you using there bandwidth.

    Yeah but how big is a YouTube video? I think it's crap!
    There's apps in the app store that are bigger then the average video, and you can download them over 3G!

    I noticed that when using Wifi for viewing Youtube videos they look better than when using 3G
